Then Act II starts and it is Emily and George’s wedding day. The stage manager cues a flashback one year ago when George took Emily to Mr. Morgan’s drugstore to get an ice cream soda after they win the election at their high school.

Emily is with the dead but misses her life and with the help of the stage manager goes back to the past.
a) Describe what the piece was about including style, performance space period and genre. State what theatrical skills you contributed to it. The piece of drama I performed is called ‘The Dummy Tree.’ It has two stories taking place simultaneously; one story, about a 17 year old boy – Paul – pondering whether to get married whilst visiting the ‘Dummy Tree’ on his wedding day. The other story is about a mother (the mother of Paul) who is expressing how hard it is to give up her child for adoption whilst sitting on a bench talking to her baby. The two stories are set in different times – present and past – as the story about Paul getting married is set in the present (2009) and the story about Pauls mother is set in the past.

Anh describes the public reaction of him appearing on the series “ a week after the series had finished, I was in the bank paying off my credit card, holding about eight hundred in my hand suddenly a hand grabbed me from behind.
