Point Of The Play Make The Audience
733 wordsMichael Frank Noises Off is a 2 hour classical farce that appears at first to be one play; but, after the Second Act, one can clearly see that it is composed of two plays running parallel to each other that are: Nothing On, a sex farce, and the backstage farce that takes place whilst the cast rehearse for the final leg of the Nothing On tour. The two plays meld, as the characters make their exits from Nothing On and entrances to the backstage tomfoolery. Whilst the characters come and go from on...

Body Language Great Job

Part Of The Story End Of The Book
1,735 wordsIn my opinion, Gus Lee did a great job in portraying a boy who was brought up in San Francisco and the hardships that he encountered. He portrays Kai Ting as a typical Chinese boy growing up in America, and how he overcomes the obstacles that he faces once in America. CHINABOY shows many examples of Chinese customs, these customs which clash with American customs. I think Kai Ting could represent any type of immigrant, who finds it difficult to start a new life in a totally different country. Ka...
