The Last Judgement is the final part of the York Corpus Christi Play. This play deals with Christ’s return from heaven to judge people. Its characters are God, Jesus, three angels, three devils, two apostles, two good souls and two bad souls. The section of the play, on which this essay will focus, is a speech of Jesus addressing the audience as well as the good and the bad souls. While he threatens the bad souls with punishment, he promises the good souls rewards. The scene is set rather at the end of the play. The part before is used to direct the audience’s attention to this scene, while the part afterwards can be understood as a reinforcement of Jesus’ speech. Undoubtedly, this scene is the most central one in the play. As it will be shown by analyzing the way of staging as well as the speech’s structure and language, its purpose is to frighten the audience and to help them leading a faithful life.
This play is about a boy named Romeo and girl named Juliet. Their family are mortal enemies so that means that they are always fighting with one another. At a Capulet party Romeo and Juliet meet for the first time not knowing who each other are, until later that night that they are enemies. They begin to fall in love with each other and get married after meeting for one night. Then the drama gets to their head and they kill themselves. In Romeo and Juliet Capulet’s and Montague’s, Friar Lawrence, and Balthasar are responsible for the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
Despite of being declared free and living in a free society, many times characters remain restricted due to their own conflicting matters. This can be seen evidently in the play Harlem Duet through the main character, Billie. Despite all blacks being declared officially free from slavery by the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, Billie still feels ‘enslaved’ many times due to pressures of external factors, such as racism that still exists in society, and internal factors such as her inability to remain in control of a situation.

For our critiquing assignment in our Introduction to Stagecraft 1, I ventured to downtown Toronto, to a small indie theatre called, The Unit 102 Theatre. There I saw the production of MISS; written by Dora Award-nominated playwright Michael Ross Albert who wrote such works as Tough Jews, The Spadina Avenue Gang with the Storefront Theatre. The set takes place in the aftermath of a shocking accident in a boarding school classroom, the story explores the tenuous connection between a high school teacher, her fiance, and a troubled student whose lives have been irrevocably changed by tragedy caused by a miscarriage, an affair, and the fear of the consequences that are not yet revealed, and finally, murder. This is a one act showdown between three
and then she saw Romeo dead on the ground and the Friar tried to hold her back and said he would make her a nun but she couldn't deal with Romeo's death and killed herself but I think she would still be alive but the Friar let her go and he left cause he didn't want to get in
Due to the love of his brothers he is very overprotective. He makes it clear that he protects them and worries about them when he stats this, “I reckon it didn’t occur to you that that your brothers might be worrying their heads off and afraid to call the police because something like that could get you two boys thrown in a boys’ home so quick it’d make your head spin.” (_pg.50_) No matter what happened to his parents he will always be sad, but he doesn’t let that stop him, he still stands up for his brothers. He worries were they are and decides what slides. He watches out for them even if they are mean to him. Darry says a statement that only parents that are caring say which is, “ Yeah, since it ain’t a school night.” (_pg.14_) He wants him to get his rest and have fun like any other parent would and worries about how he does in school. With these two examples from the novel everyone should know he is protective of his younger brothers. He’s changing for the good throughout the novel and that’s a good
In the play, Mrs. Peters is one of the women who supports in the hiding of the evidence that will evidently prove Mrs. Wright’s motive for murder. The plays revolves around theme that is associated with the title, Trifles, wherein the irony of it is the women meddling in their trifle things find the motive. Mrs. Peters is a dynamic character that sees the most change, from siding with the men and making excuses for them to hiding the cutting piece of evidence for the case, being the wife of the sheriff she faces conflict in helping Mrs. Wright however in the end it is her trying to hide the bird in her pocket that triggers Mrs. Hale to take action in the end, her character turns from a woman “married to the law” to an a criminal by withholding evidence. All these triggers of Mrs. Peter’s
The play Our Town was something so unique and simple, but it somehow found a way to relate with everyone. Its simplicity seemed to be a hit or miss with many audience members. It was one of those plays that you relate so much with it you enjoy its minimalistic nature, or you find it too typical and boring. I happen to be among the group that found this play to be very appealing. I feel that at many times, little to no scenery and props make it hard to visualize the scene of a play. However, with Our Town the addition of a stage manager to give an explanation of each scene made up for that entirely.
The play “Doubt: A Parable” by John Patrick Shanley was first staged at the Manhattan Theatre Club in 2004 and won the Pulitzer Prize the next year. In the play, the author touches upon a set of urgent social topics, such as pedophilia, abuse, faith, and moral considerations. Also, the author dwells upon a controversial image of a nun with the example of two main female characters of the play, Sister Aloysius, and Sister James: though having dedicated their lives to the same goal, these women are entirely different in their experiences, characters, and moral considerations.
On June 5th, 2015, at 8pm I went to see the play Barefoot in the Park in the Delray Beach Playhouse. As I was getting close to my destination, I couldn’t help but notice the beautiful houses around me. The Delray Beach Playhouse is located in a waterfront, which makes it a beautiful spot for the theater. As soon as I walked in the doors, I noticed right away that most of the people there were the elderly, I was by far the youngest person there except for maybe two other, who seemed to be around my age. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but as soon as I got in I bought my ticket and the lady even asked me if I wanted to sit in the first row, of course I did, who would want to give up front seats. As soon as the doors opened I went in and found my
Crying over spilled milk is silly, right? Worrying about the little, mundane things is pointless and a waste of time. In Susan Glaspell’s one-act play Trifles, she demonstrates how being sensitive to the subtle details can be vital to solving a mystery. Throughout the one-act play, Glaspell highlights the theme of gender roles through the women’s worries, irony, and symbolism.
In total, William Shakespeare has written 137 sonnets and 34 plays. One of those plays is Twelfth Night. In Twelfth Night there are numerous characters that make the story exciting and memorable.

Shakespeare used Viola in the story to enhance the plot with detail and made the audience feel connected to the story.
The setting of the play which takes place in the early twentieth century has established the theme that women have been looking down by men. ‘Trifles’ that is used as the title of the play has further foreshadowed the theme of the play in which discrimination of women will happen in the play. During the investigation of Mr Wright’s death, the men that involved in finding out the murderer have despised
