Theatre Review Of My Brothers Drug East 15 Acting School Assignment

The story-telling of the play was also enhanced by the use of physical theatre with parts of text spoken alongside strong gestures and music. These parts were done with precision and gave the audience an enhanced sensory experience. These sections, although promising and expres...
