Why should the play be presented in its historic context?

Could the play take place in a different scenic environment?
What do we know about the main characters from the scenic environment?
Which character changes the most? How? Why?
What aspects of the scenic environment support the theme of the play?
What is overall shape of scenic environment? rectangular?, circular?, horizontal?, vertical?, diagonal? etc.
What is overall color, value, and texture of scenic environment?  Examples: bright red and shiny? murky brown like old burlap?
What is quality of scenic environment? ordered or disordered?, clean or dirty? soft or hard edged? etc.
What is the relationship between the performers and audience? What are the boundaries between them?
How should scenic environment fit into theatre: perpendicular?, skewed?, in front of proscenium?, behind? in audiences lap? etc.
What is importance of area outside of main scenic environment?
Who in the world of the play created the scenic environment?
What part does light play in dramatic action? Sound?

 

  1. DRAMATIC INVENTORY

This is similar to and can be based on what we did in class when we took apart the play in terms of all the interior and exterior research, physical needs: entrances, furniture, props, etc.

 

  1. Title of play, playwright
    2. When written, time and place first produced
    3. Notes on the playwright, e.g., life span, social status, connection to culture and politics of the times, purpose for writing, etc.
    4. Playwright’s set descriptions — abridged.
    5. Notes found in text. Begin each section with Act#, Scene#, general description of setting. Note stage directions and dialogue reference that answer the following questions: Where are we? geographic location, socioeconomic environment, physical surroundings.
  2. Consolidate your notes into a concise list of scenic requirements.
    7. List the pivotal dramatic moments that require visual support and focus.
    8. Describe the presentational style, mood, & atmosphere of the play.
    9. Describe the theme/central idea /core conflict of the play.
    10. List the items and ideas that you need to research.
    11. List questions to ask the director and others on the production team if this were to be a realized design

These questions should be answered as a part of the Analysis and/or inventory:

When are we? historic period, time of day, passage of time, etc.
What are action requirements? necessary exits and entrances, interaction with set, abuse of set, etc.
What are essential motivational units? furniture, levels, set dressing, etc.
What are essential properties? Hand props, dressing props , costume props, food props
What are the lighting requirements? Light sources both on set and off set, mood shifts, special effects, etc.
What are sound requirements? type and location of sounds, etc.
What are pivotal dramatic moments?
What is the playwright really saying in this play?
How does the setting change or evolve over time? Or does it?

 

     Adapted in part from Kent Goetz’ work on Set Design
