Perform a short scene on video taken from a realistic play.  Be careful to choose a play where realism is not just the default genre of theatre — but actually contributes in some manner to the themes of the play.  Write a short paragraph or two explaining (1) why you chose the play and (2) the acting preparation necessary for the performance.  You can use anyone you’d like as scene partners; they do not have to be a member of the class.  The videos and explanations will also be added to our class website (in addition to you posting them to your individual blogs)  so that all in class can view them from one site.
