Introduction of TOPIC
Our class where asked to do a play called the mummers play, we was given a script and we was told to learn all the lines and then later we would act it out. At first I thought it would be quite easy because I thought that we wouldn’t have to think of anything to do just read it out and I also thought that all the actions would be written inside.
The play a mummers play is mainly about good and evil and old and new the good being St George because he is the hero and he is the one who slays the dragon and the dragon being the evil also there are the Morris me they signify the new because the Morris men go round planting and also the dragon being the old and then St George comes along and kills him to show that the new will always
win and the new year will always come around and it will never be forgot.
I think that it was an ok performance when we performed only one person forgot their words but overall I think it was ok. However I do think that we could have made it a bit longer and the fight seen could have been choreographed a bit better and that could have been longer and also I think that all of us should have spaced the words out a bit more and put a few more actions into it.
Over all I think that the play was a success I think that it was really cool and every one did as much as the could and if I had the chance to I would want to do a bit more scripted plays I think that it is really fun to put actions to words hard but fun.
