two-page essay on each of the five plays/productions read/seen in class. These are essentially reviews, asking you to assess 1) the intention of the author, 2) the intention of the director, and 3) how you feel the production is or is not relevant to 2020.
For part 1, you will be expected to provide evidence for your arguments cited directly from the play texts, and from whatever scholarship you can find on other plays written by the author or written about the author. For Part 2, you will be expected to provide evidence directly from the films seen in class, citing specific images of acting style, costumes, set, etc.
The plays are;
Sophocles Oedipus Rex 1957
Everyman/Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory
