Main points include that this source of praise for the play by critics and readers comes from the parallelism between imagination and love, and the specific ways the author of the play, Shakespeare, constructs the plot. Expanding on Dent’s assertions, the author includes that imagination in itself is necessary for the functionality of most works and the idea of love has specific characteristics that act as reasons for the actions and decisions made by characters in the text. The author maintains the emphasis on the relationship between imagination and love. Their interaction in this play specifically causes confusion and folly which produces the comedic effect so praised by audiences. Imagination is used to describe the ambiguity of love itself, by having fairies implementing magic on the characters to cause them to fall in love with the “wrong” people.
Characters are such a pivotal aspect of theatre that if they are not successfully identified they can severely hinge the entertainment value and deeper meanings of a play. This is actually quite difficult to do, as the development of characters relies on as many different aspects as the characters themselves affect. Both textual and dramaturgical features of a play are needed in order to develop a character to their full potential. Relationships, theme, plot as well as potential costuming, lighting, music and other techniques are all equally significant in their ability to develop and distinguish different characters. Actors too are similarly important in character development as

The theme within Oedipus which can be the “insights of human life,” can be depicted as what the play really means rather than what events occur such as the plot (Llucas). Music is the key towards emotional actions, which can set off a specific mood within an event. The rhythm within a play such as dialogue and vocalizations can present to an audience a specific mood or feelings among different characters. Sound effects are also used for music in order to make an experience come to life and to make the play seem realistic.
Key features of my chosen practitioner and justification for our choice of Ashputtel to illustrate their influence. The Practitioner which my group chose to use as a result of their surrealist and stylized theatrical style was the theatre Company Kneehigh. Kneehigh aim to recreate well known stories and focus on recreating moods, environments and feelings In order to create, as the Artistic director Mike Shepherd put it, “theatre of humanity on an epic and tiny scale”. Kneehigh use many techniques which we felt personally drawn to as actors and wanted to use throughout our piece.

Oxford Dictionary defines ‘lyricism’ as an artist's expression of emotion in an imaginative and beautiful way. A playwright uses words, music and other stage techniques to convey lyrical qualities to the play. More than one critic has pointed out that Tennessee Williams writes with his eyes and his ears while other playwrights are often content to write out of memory or to pick their brains for dramatic content. Brooks Atkinson says it this way: “Behind the fury and uproar of the characters are the eyes, ears and the mind of a lyric dramatist who has brought into the theatre a new freedom of style… he can make (language)express shades of feeling outside the range of most writers – coldness and longing , silence, desolation, dissolution. Between society and the individual there is a void that Mr. Williams can cross with words that are plain in themselves but radiant in meaning.
