Sean Embrey-Stine THEA 370: Costume Design Professor Slotten Fall 2012 Script Analysis of Witness for the Prosecution 1. Identify four major moments in the script and explain how and what exposition/information the audience learns. a. The first important moment of exposition in the script is when the audience learns that Miss Emily French has been “coshed on the back of the head and killed.” This information that she has been murdered is the entire basis of the story. b. In the moment Sir Wilfrid asks Leonard, “Had you reason to believe she was well off?” and Leonard responds, “Well, she talked as though she was,” the audience learns the motive behind a murder that they eventually learn was committed by Leonard himself. Though its importance is not completely apparent at the time, it is still an interesting bit of exposition, for the audience member who believes Leonard is innocent is still interested to know this important piece of information that, they can be sure, will be used against him, guilty or not.

    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.
