  • The Waiter (Overview)
    • Challenging part
    • For the conversation to flow- the waiter needs to be 'in the zone'
    • When the waiter moves out of earshot the conversations cannot be heard- 'Theatrical Convention'
    • He is very comical, due to how many props he has to bring out.
    • He is set against his awareness of the violent arguments.
    • The comedy comes in, when he keeps asking the two couples if they want vegetables
    • We get the feeling that he is scared because of his slight stammer or shaky fumbling.
    • As the play progresses the actor should increase nervousness and showing a comedic clash between his duty.
