A Basic Drama Essay On The Crucible

445 words - 2 pages

Year 10 Drama The CrucibleI have selected Abigail as the character who I would play. Abigail is a seventeen year old who has been caught attempting witch craft with her cousin and her friends. She is being questioned by her Uncle Paris who saw her doing witch craft in the forest.The scene starts off with Susanna bringing news from the doctor, Abigail asks Susanna to "Speak nothin' of it to the village" I think this is because she is scared that people will find out she has been doing witch craft.

For example I would do this when she says "But we never conjured spirits". By doing this it would also make her seem like she is lying.When Paris is shouting and asking her questions I would play Parris so she gets backed up in to a corner with her hands behind her back. I would do this when Paris shouts "I saw it!" I would also play her so she tries not to make eye contact with Parris. I would do this because it would make her seem very guilty and it makes it obvious to the audience that she is lying. An example of when I would do this would be when Abigail says "I think so sir".When Abigail is answering Paris's questions I would play her so she is quivering slightly. To show that she is nervous. I would make her answer the questions quickly and try and distance her from the blame. When Paris questions her about people being naked from the forest I would make her answer with terror and fear. As it is not the kind of question she would like to answer.I would perform Abigail's accent as a farmer type voice. I would do this so the audience get the idea of that it was set along time ago when they spoke differently to modern day Americans.
