THEA 101 WEEKLY WORKSHEET NAME: STUDENT ID: TUTOR/TUTORIAL QUESTION: Either: Read the opening of Scene One in The Island (to the end of p.13). Discuss how the dramaturgy of this scene would be affected if the roles were played by actors of another ethnicity . Or Read the opening of Scene Two in The Island (to the end of p.17). Discuss how the dramaturgy of this scene would be affected if the roles were played by actors of another gender . RESPONSE: Reading through the first scene of the island I can see how vastly different the play would have been with actors of a different ethnicity such as was used in the Alaskan universities rendition. Well after reading the play it just feels wrong and the emotion that was needed for the role has been slightly belittled as the original has been set in apartied era of South Africa’s history the idea of ‘white men’ playing those roles seems grossly wrong and if anything seems an insult to Athol Fugard’s brilliant play. With the Dramaturgy of this scene I would think a lot of changing and cutting would need to be done especially

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
