May 16, 2007 Drama 115 Looking at a play First look at list of characters. It may tell you age, race, and even what they are wearing throughout the play. You should read the play atleast twice. First you read it to figure out what exactly is going on. Keep in mind at the type of theatre that the play may have been used for. Also think about if you were going to make the play the type of theatre you would use. Read the stage directions and figure out what it wants you to do. Look to see if there are any lighting issues in the play. How would you light a Greek play. Look to see what time of day they would have done it. Sound effects look to see if they are any. When you are reading after you have read it a second time pay attention to the silences. Who is talking, when and how? Pay attention to the dialogue. The dialogue is the sound. Drama is action, which is a type of conflict. There is imitation by actors. If you are an actor, it is very important to know
