There are 5 questions below that each require a 300-400 word answer.

1) Write a short paper (300 – 400 words) in which you describe any theatrical experience you may have had prior to this class.
2) What do you believe was the main idea or theme of this play (A Doll’s House)? In other words, what statement about life do you believe most emerges from the play. Please support your statement of these with specific examples from the play. Do what extent do you think this would be a good play to produce today? To what extent are the ideas it explores still important today?
3) Think of the finest acting performance you have ever seen on stage or on film. Write a brief essay (300-400 words) in which you identify the name of the actor, the character, and the film or play you are writing about. Then proceed to describe what the actor did that made the performance so extraordinary. I would encourage you to review the reading from The Essential Theatre while preparing this paper. The chapter will help you describe and evaluate the work an actor does in the preparation and presentation of the role.
4) Select any of the plays we have read so far in this course, and think about the work of the scene designer. Pick any one scene in the play and design the scenery. In other words, tell me as precisely as possible what the setting would like like for the scene you are designing. Be as specific as possible. You may use any combination of words, images, and sketches to convey your scene design choices. Your paper should also include a rationale for the choices you have made. In other words, not only tell me what your scene would look like, but also tell me why you made the choices you made. 5) Select any one of the plays we have read so far in this course, and think about the work of the costume designer. Pick any one scene in the play and design the costumes for two of the characters. You may use a combination of words, sketches, or images to convey your choices. Please include a description and a rationale for the choices you have made.
