Julius Caesar at the Folger Theater in Washington DC

Julius Caesar at the Folger Theater in Washington DC

Your third writing assignment is a 3 -4   page response paper to  Shakespeare’s  Julius Caesar
performed at  Folger  Theatre.  The paper will discuss how the play, as a work of theatre, has the
unique ability reflect American Society.

The paper is due in class on Monday,  November  10 .

Three  primary questions need to be answered in your paper:
1)   Describe what you think the Director’ s concept is for  Folger  Theatre’ s production of
Julius Caesar
2)   How do  th e  Director’ s Concept   and the details of the production itself   –  such as design
elements and  acting   –  help   to express a  specific theme in the play .
3)   Demonstrate fluency with topics discussed in class –   specifically  about Shakespeare
and   Elizabethan Theatre

In your paper you will:

x  express a defendable point of view   (a thesis) about the play t hat is related to the unique
qualities of theatre.  I would suggest focusing on one theme and spending your paper
showing how the play and the production use writing and acting to express that theme.

x  USE DETAILS FROM THE PRODUCTION ITSELF. Don’t address this play as if you are reading
it in a book.  Highlight choices that were shown in the production you saw.

x  demonstrate fluency with the topics discussed in class and read on your own .

All assignments must be typed, double – spaced, stapled and include t he student’s name.  Title
and header do not count toward the minimum page count. Please cite all sources using MLA
format.   Even if your only source is the play you are writing about, you still need to cite the
source at the end of your paper.
