One Act Play Synopsis

For Weds, March 19th….Literary D: Those who didn’t submit a summary PLEASE do ASAP… Remember completing work on time contributes to your participation grade, which is 50% of your quarter grade.

Also, I stated in class that we were to watch the adaptation of Dutchman for homework, but I want to amend that. Please move ahead with beginning to sketch out and draft your first draft of your one act play. Think of where you want the audience begin. We’ll discussing opening scenes in class on Weds.


One Act Play Synopsis:

  • Approximately 500 words and/or 5 paragraphs.
    • Provide details about your play’s plot, characters, setting, rising action, conflict and resolution.
    • See an example of a synopsis/summary of David Auburn’s Proof HERE.

Part 2 Great Expectations:

  • Lit D: Due March, 11, 2014
  • Lit E, F: Due March 12, 2014

Take a look at your 500 word “Great Expectations” story. Reimagine and retell the same story from a different perspective. For example, if you told the story in the voice of a son in conflict with a father, perhaps tell the same story from the father’s point of view, or maybe the mother’s. Think about the voice in which you retell the story. Work to maintain narrative tension and be sure that the narrator of the story has a purpose.
