Reanna Echeverria Professor Valerie Baugh-Schlossbergg The Velocity of Autumn (Paper 2) Theater 101 05/07/2011 Lost In A Fictive World Emmy award nominee, playwright Eric Coble’s play, The Velocity of Autumn,  recently had its world premiere at The Boise Contemporary Theatre. This play  represents the characteristics of Realism plays. In the play you will meet Lillian, an  elderly woman who lives by herself, and her son Tom. The play attempts to represent an  actual scene that may happen in real life. The complete design of the play is for it to be  real, and give appearance to everyday reality where the viewer can get lost in this fictive  world, which embodies the uniqueness of Realism plays.  As the lights rise back up from the pitch black, an elderly woman is seen in a  chair sleeping, in a very realistic living room. This is Lillian. A huge ruckus is heard, and  Lillian as well as the audience jumps in fright when a man is noticed scaling her  building, just outside her window. It is her son Tom. Lillian has been avoiding leaving her  house, avoiding her kids, and most importantly has been trying to avoid being sent to a  nursing home like her children desire. Her ultimatum is to both leave her alone and let  her die in her house, or she will blow the place with homemade Molotov cocktails. After

    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.
