Prompt: The setting (space, place, and time) forms the backdrop and defines the atmosphere for a play. Settings sometimes symbolically present plot and character issues.

Check grammar and spelling before posting.
Your replies to classmates should be at least a paragraph in length and made with an eye to expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their thoughts.
Consider asking questions to further meaningful conversation. Participation must be completed by the end of the week to earn credit.

In our weekly discussion, your response will focus on the setting and stage directions in that assigned play, and in our weekly essay, you will analyze the assigned play through the elements of character, symbol, or theme. Since plays are meant to be performed and viewed by an audience, it is recommended that you not only read the script and stage directions but also locate an online performance to view the drama as it is brought to life on stage. Now, the curtain is going up….
