Harrington 21M.604 Fall 2005 Week 6, Assignment Write a 10 minute play/scene where:
1. There is a clear EVENT. 2. Character A is willing to do ANYTHING to get what he/she wants. Character B
is equally motivated to keep Character A from getting what he/she wants. Character B must also want something. Keep the wants and obstacles strong. Be inventive. Make your characters worthy opponents.
1. There has to be a chorus. The chorus must interrupt the action at least 3 times. The chorus can only speak from “found” text (a headline/ from a book/ a magazine/ an ad/ overheard conversations)
2. You must use 5 to 10 sounds effects (SFX) from your sound journals or that you devise for this scene.
3. Something has to be physically broken as a result of the action. 4. The scene must be in an interesting/evocative public space.
Be bold. Be larger than life. Go too far. In fact go way, way, way too far. Be outrageous. Be theatrical.
