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.
