Performance Critiques are meant to analyze different aspects of the theatrical production you enjoyed.

 I need 4 pages Performance Critique. You can choose any play., I attached the overview of both Plays. Format is also mentioned below. Due in 12 hours.

This week, we will continue to work on our Performance Critique #1.

After completing your First Impressions Document you probably have a better sense of which of these two plays excite you the most and what ideas you want to discuss in your paper.

This week, you will pick one of the two plays (Fcenes or Glass Menagerie), determine the POV of your paper critique, and submit your paper’s outline.   *I strongly suggest watching your selected play/film again to refresh your memory.

Performance Critiques are meant to analyze different aspects of the theatrical production you enjoyed. You can choose to write your paper from any of the following POVs or a combination of them: 1) Plot structure/genre and style,  2) Character Development  3) Social Themes discussed in the play.

Please note this is NOT an essay. It is just an outline to facilitate the writing process you will do next week.

To complete your assignment, use the following outline:
