SECTION A- Q1

In the devised peice of ' Blackhurst House' i was an actor playing the role of Alice , my peice of acting was about the woman in black cursing the twin girls in the house. the period of the peice is the victorian era, they style is heightened realism and the genre was gothic horror , the performance space was the harry crooke theatre with a end on configuration, the target audience for the peice was adults as it is gothic horror which may be unsuitable for younger viewers, the sound effects was gothic horror soundtrack and the  lighting effects were a blue steely general wash with haze to make ghostly effects with gauze to make it seem like a decrepid old house, i also had a victorian dress to fit in with the victorian era.
