"Interesting views on society are conveyed by the distinctively visual."
The confronting realisation of situations that ordinary people are put into can be gruesome
and explicit. In both Shoe-Horn Sonata by John Misto and "A Mother in a Refugee Camp"
written by Chinua Achebe, Distinctively Visual utilises language techniques, projected
images and the physical acting on stage to create images in the audiences minds which

written by Chinua Achebe, the startling loss of love through the outcomes of certain
situations can lead to the inversion of values and twist the meanings. The quality of life has
