The headfirst piece starts out with a contrast been two women, one off fairly wealthy background and the Other struggling to make ends meet this portrays a conflict between both women based on their differences which in the end both women overcame. The play about a prison warden, Anita George and prisoner Woven Campbell depicts a political disruption in Grenade’s annals which led to the imprisonment of Grenadier Philips Card.
Immured along with her husband for assassinating Grenade’s elected Prime Minister, Anita presumes that Woven s a greedy woman with a thirst for predominance and that she is the main reason behind all the troubles in Grenade due to her pushing her husband into the overthrow tooth Prime Minister. Anita openly affronts Woven, while Woven demands that she be respected because of her position in society and the “success” she has brought upon the country.
Two years had passed and Nit’s views about Woven hadn’t changed but as the years went by for a total of seven years and they both opened up to each other and adapted to each others personalities Anita saw Woven as a woman with humanity and compassion, Although the play is mainly about the two characters Anita and Woven, the radio announcer plays a very important role, he notifies the audience about the amount of years passed and the fate of Grenade, the radio announcer practically gives viewers an idea of what visas going on during the play _ The trio has done an exceptionally great job on the piece ‘Sitting in Limbs’.
The use of accents added a great effect on the nationality Of the characters or the origin where the incident was being taken place. The use of costume was also great because nee could identify Which character was Which , when Anita or Loretta wore the khaki shirt and the khaki pants it gave the audience a hint that she was some sort of guard or officer or in this case a prison warden. In Phillips case the use of headphones gave the audience an idea that he was Dc or a radio announcer.
The use of the projection of bars gave the audience an idea that it was some kind of prison, The bars also reflected on how each woman felt inside, Anita trying to raise a family by herself in the economic struggles felt ‘imprisoned” because she anted to live a better life, she wanted to reach for her goals but she could not do so because of the current situation but eventually ‘broke free “and decided to accept the offer her sister had given her.
Woven although imprisoned literally felt” imprisoned” due to the tact that deep down inside she knew what she did was wrong but her arrogance and pride got in the way she’ broke free” by refusing to sign a contract which could have literally freed her by denying everything she had actually done. However they were some minor imperfections which were indeed noticeable, such as the backing of the audience, Phillip walking offstage before the fade had actually begun and where Loretta and Amanda had somewhat forgotten a bit of their lines.
There were also some technical difficulties Where as the fade would begin too early or a little too late but they but did not affect the theatrical piece it self. The play was a unique piece especially because it was my first time viewing a moon read play and because they tied in a fictional crisis into a play which found very creative. The play also impacted the audience and made it an enjoyable play for them.
