3. After the work we have done, highlight a comic focus/moment and a dramatic focus/moment and how you would transition between them.
Today we started to explore the concept of Drama vs Comedy. These are some of the questions that we explored in the lesson. (these do not need to be answered, but have them in the back of y our mind as a base for answering the questions below)
How do we know how to play a scene?
What cues does the text, stage direction give us?
