The Elizabethan era gave us Shakespeare. It was also showed how the very language was enough to create dramatic intensity. The techniques and conventions associated with this period of theater are explored through both the PowerPoint and workbook in this package. Women weren’t allowed on stage and the limitations of the stage made soliloquies, monologues and asides essential in furthering dramatic tension. For all this, the works of this time are constantly in production. The workbook activities help the student of the stage discover how this was achieved by exploring the stagecraft and conventions in a very practical and meaningful way.
