A highly effective use of lighting, set design, props and additional sensory stimulus; were powerful tools in creating a realistic production. The skilful use of the elements of drama; human context; language, movement, mood and dramatic tension, enabled the audience to relate to the characters and plot. The development of sub-plots also added to the creation of a realistic performance, by mirroring the human condition. Through

    tragi-comedy but more than the ideas raised in the statement the play is about change and the inability for some to deal with it, the battle between dream and reality and loyalty and mateship. It also serves as a social document of Australia in the 1950s. Lawler uses symbols, the actions of the characters, the structure of the play and mise-en-scene to effectively portray his feelings to the audience. The main theme expressed in the play is change and the characters' inability to cope with this. Like many

This put his mother Laporsha in a tough spot when it came to her parenting. She wanted all the help she could get for

  • The Burning Of Petroleum Based Fuels

    1154 Words  | 5 Pages

    Can you see the light? As the burning of petroleum-based fuels, natural gases, and coal continues, smog will continue to cover the sky. Pollution from said burning occurs as greenhouse gases and chemicals. Specifically, petroleum-based fuels, natural gases, and coal release energy when heat breaks the bonds between hydrogens and carbons, generating energy and releasing carbon dioxide and water as byproducts. This energy often originates from stored energy preserved in organisms that eventually died

  • The Effect Of A Light Ray Reflecting

    962 Words  | 4 Pages

    effects of a light ray reflecting at different angles of incident from a convex, flat, and convex mirror. In the second part a light ray will be refracted through a rhombus prism at different angles of incidence. We will measure the angles using a protractor. For the third experiment we will examine the indices of colors as light is refracted through the rhombus. Lastly, we will use polar lens to examine Brewster’s angle and polarization. THEORY PART A: REFLECTION When a light ray hits a point on

  • Physics Of Physics Regarding Light Rays

    1581 Words  | 7 Pages

    I have always been interested in the way light travels, not just in how, but also in all the other factors that affect the light rays, including the speed, the velocity, the distance, as well as others. In my past years of school, I had been able to explore areas of physics concerning light rays, as part of my physics course. However, I had previously only learned the basic principles, such as the laws of refraction and reflection. Because I chose to focus on Chemistry and Biology, I was not given

    inevitably, quite unique. Its motion is like a wave in nature, but it can be broken down by drawing rays that demonstrates the direction of the wave propagation. The use of the waves, allow individuals to decipher the common features of reflection, which includes a basic relation between angle of incidence and angle of reflection for the radiation that is in reflection from a surface. The meaning
