Choose 2 of these topics to discuss in the play critiques:

  • Production design – include scenery, costumes, lights, sound, props – how did the overall design help to create environment and tell the story, what did the design tell you about the show, what do you think the concept was and why?
  • Directing – how did the director shape the story…how did specific choices work? Make sure you understand the difference between what the director does and what the playwright does.
  • Acting – was the storytelling believable? What worked and what didn’t and why? Did the style work in the world? Could you understand/hear?
