Your final presentation is 20 minutes long. See schedule for your date. Failure to present, without exceptional excuse, will earn you an F for project 3.

But don’t worry – this is all work in process. Whatever the presentation date,  from now until the end of the semester you should be editing and re-editing your script/text/installation.

Screenplay or script projects

You are responsible for:

  • Presenting a reworked script. 10-20 pages (not more)
  • Casting your script, both narrator and characters (if you choose you can send the script to your cast to practice in advance)
  • Providing enough print-outs of the script for all readers plus 1 for me.
  • Those presenting early are expected to redraft the script following the feedback they receive.
  • Those presenting late, have more time to polish.

Prose projects

You are responsible for:

  • Presenting a reworked text. Time the reading – it should not be longer than 20 minutes.
  • Casting a reader or reading yourself (if you choose you can send the script to your reader to practice in advance)

Let’s Play Prisoners

Justina1.big

Short Description “Let’s Play Prisoners (1988) explores power between women through a story about two girls whose childhood rituals and dares take on a distinctly sadomasochistic tone. The story, read by an adult woman (the story’s author, Jo Anstey) sitting on a couch, tells of childhood games of imprisonment, physical restraint, humiliation, and pain from the victim’s point of view, probing how the girl’s masochism and desire for approval compel her to comply with her friend’s increasingly cruel requests.”
