Hamlet v. R/G

Comparison of acting and theatrical conventions :

Information about Shakespeare’s theatre abounds, and attending a performance of any contemporary play should allow for some worthwhile comparisons. Draw a table of the differences and similarities, using the following ideas to guide your analysis:

division into acts and scenes

how the ending of a scene is signified

the descriptions by the playwright of the settings of time and of place the stage directions given to the actors by the playwright, either directly, or implied through the content of the speeches

managing effective exits and entrances

the degree of realism needed for the staging of each play, such as the props and costumes required

the size of the stage required to perform some of the simultaneous actions

the provision of lighting and sound devices for each play, in the context in which it was written

the assumed understandings of the audience by each playwright

the type of audience the play was written for

the structure of the plot of each play - aspects such as exposition, rising action, climax, falling action and denouement or resolution

the features expected by an audience, such as soliloquies, duels, comic relief, processions, play within the play.
