Interpretation of Dead Man Walking
This past weekend I went to see the play Dead Man Walking. I believe that it was an important play in terms of the elements of acting. One important style of acting that I believe the cast was able to relay well, is the idea of creating something that in reality is invisible and making it into a part of the play. For example when the sister and the prisoner were facing the audience during the play; I believe that they were able to create a sense of continuitybetween themselves and the audience. This was done during the scene they acted out a glass window found in the visiting room of jails. Although there was no actual window that was being used as an on stage prop, it was very easy to believe that the two characters were in fact facing each other, although in reality they were sitting side by side.
