it as almost a miracle which Valentine uses to start the scene off, making the audience have a sense of exhilaration. This build up of tension creates theatricality in the minds of the audience, rather than non-verbatim plays re-enacting in a realistic or non-realistic manner. Marcia Seebacher and Barbra Selby : Valentine characterises these two as the ‘tweedle de’ and ‘tweedle dum’ characters, the larrikin friends who just bunch off each other’s dialogue. They create a comedic sense to scene, allowing the audience to have some level of relief from constant long winded monologues. Barbra Selby : “There as Easts and Manly, Balmain” – Valentine shows the audience through Barbra’s dialogue that many other team members supported the South’s cause. It shows a holistic approach to supporting the side, from all corners, including the Souths rivals and competition. Helen Grasswell : “But I was upset that the industry that I worked in, which was supposed to be fair, I didn’t think was going to be fair” – Even people that worked for companies owned by Murdoch, felt they were being censored. This controversy inside the core of News Limited creates theatricality through the fact that people are intrigued with controversy just as much as they are intrigued by symbolism and chorus. Valentine allows the theatricality to come from the bare nature of what the interviewed characters said. Mike Gibson: “Where were all these fans when their beloved Bunnies needed them most?” – Gibson shows his anger towards fans who had ‘jumped on the bandwagon’ as it was a popular thing to do. Valentine shows that there were still deep rooted issues in the team, even if there was a large rally for their support. Node: Three – Hanging On by a Thread ‘Nan’: “You’re not comparing my son to a cat and he said, No difference. Ruthless crooks” – She shows that she has been battling all her life and so have many supporters of the Souths club. ‘Nan’: “I don’t think I’d still be here today without the Souths” – Valentine shows heartfelt and extremely meaningful expressions of love for the Souths to create an atmosphere of passion for the club. Stories like ‘Nan’s shows the far-reaching impact the team has had on people’s lives, even acting as a deterrent from depression or suicide. Mark Courtney’s monologue : This acts as one of the most emotionally driven speeches in the play, to ensure that the audience can try to feel the emotions that people like Courtney felt. For him, his family was involved, his community, himself. This is what Valentine uses to create a theatrical environment, one of pure emotion through the real words, rather than made up stories. Valentine tries to stress that these people, this issue, has literal meaning to many people and Verbatim gives the issue a very honest representation. It continues the honesty shown throughout the Souths annulment. His pauses add theatricality as the actor is able to use these to draw dramatic tension through lack of dialogue. Actors can use deep breaths, sighs and sobbing

    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.

    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.
