There are many variables that can be key to one’s view of a successful theatre performance, while that same variable can be confounding. For me, I believe that there are three essential elements, which are acting, production design and most importantly the direction of the play. A clear and concise presentation of acting, production design and direction are essential for any theatre performance. Acting is the face of the performance.
Self-discoveries of the main characters in the works Fathers and Sons and A Doll’s House These two works Fathers and Sons and A Doll’s House are ones in which the characters are very interactive with each other. A lot of the novel Fathers and Sons is written in dialogue to emphasize and to strengthen the obviousness of the relationships that exist between the characters. The play A Doll’s House is completely dependent on the relationships because the whole story is told through the words of the characters. These characters all affect each other and some may have a larger impact on those around them than others might have. These relationships are very important because they determine the changes that happen to each character throughout the plot.
Suffering is a key element of complexity that ultimately reveals a character, and brings suffering upon others. In Sophocles’ Antigone and Anouilh’s Antigone, the past events affect, positively or negatively, the present actions, attitudes, or values of the characters. From the very beginning of Anouilh’s Antigone, there is an immediate difference in attitude. The substitution of the Choral Odes for a single character representing the chorus adds more of a modern take on the play. This version can be seen as much less complex than Sophocles’ version, although the characters still face the same issues from their past.

Characters like Iago, Roderigo, Cassio, Desdemona, Emilia etc. help to build a very intense play and each of the character play an important role. Apart from Othello the most important character in the play is Iago who is the villain of the play. Othello and Iago are two characters who affect the whole scenario of the play. Character analysis of these characters is very important and since they have similarities at some extent this essay will also show the comparison between the two ideologies.
The main points of the story are the ideas of Good vs. Evil, Narrating and Story Telling, Relationships and morals; when to ‘draw the line’. The overall intention of the piece is to make the audience think about ethics and morality and whether there really is Good vs. Bad in our world and if so how we see the ‘good’ and ‘bad’ in people. Very complex and intense acting is required in the play and many devices are used, Multi-characterization, for one plays a huge part in the play and has a huge effect.

Macbeth Discuss the role of imagery in the tragedy Macbeth. How important is imagery to the play and in what ways is it depicted? Imagery is an essential technique in the evolving of the plot and characters in Macbeth. The importance of imagery to Macbeth is extremely valuable, as the technique is employed strongly throughout the play by Shakespeare. Through imagery, Shakespeare is also able to reveal Macbeth’s true character, most dominantly through clothing imagery, light and darkness imagery, and blood imagery.
Consequently as these dramatic and literary techniques are structured they do in fact impose a recognizable order on human behaviour and events however this is an unavoidable part of theatre as plays are a story and a story must have structure to give it meaning and make it entertaining. Ariel Dorfman’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ is a brilliant example of modern literary which demonstrates the many ways in which dramatic and literary structure impose order on the human events and behaviour of the play and the purpose the playwright has in imposing this order. All play’s are essentially a dramatic performance of a series of events that link together to tell a story to the audience in a manner that is entertaining, therefore all plays follow one of the many formats of a story. Ariel Dorfman’s ‘Death and the Maiden’ follows the most commonly know story structure of introduction, complication, climax and conclusion which consequently imposes order on the human events and behavior within the text. This order is clearly visible within the dialogue of the novel with all main events and human behavior following the above structure and thus imposing order on the characters and events, removing the chaotic and random factors of human life.

Iago is a major character in this play but so is Othello, although Iago having 1097 lines in the play.
Waiting for Godot, unlike many plays follows no specific plot, a concept in which most conventional plays ought to have in order to rope in an audience member to the contents and morals of the play. Waiting for Godot uses the absence of a plot to convey the plays meaning, which is something out of the ordinary for plays of this time. By creating a circular and symmetrical structure in the play, Beckett implies that if one does not break the mold of the human condition, then nothing will get accomplished in the persons life.
