I loved australian drama (the doll) i thought that was the easier of the two, but absurdism (Waiting for godot) was a little harder. what was that question on about. I still got a booklet filled, but it is a booklet of endless nothings, quite like absurdism! you could say my essay was a form of absurdism, do you think the markers will pick that up?

heya!! I liked both questions.....i did..

1) Australian - 7 stages and Running up a dress -10 pages...
2) American - Streetcar and Our town - 8 pages..

I thought section one (oz) was harder than American...I thought it would be so much more broad.. but i rambled alot of crap and I felt like it was good stuff!!!!! I like American coz i knew alot of the history of theatre and what was goin on in society...

Hope uz all did GR8!!!!! Much love.....

The Australian theatre question was a major oddball for me, and everyone in my class. The absurdist question was striaght down the line really

Well i thought the drama exam was pretty indepth...the first time i read both qt's i was like WHAT THE F*?! does that mean! Then i read them ova and ova again and as i got started i was pearlin' along eva so nicely...but i am not sure it was the right stuff.
I tired using example after example but its so much easier to just generalise.
n e ways thats it for me

I stuffed american i just wrote such a shit essay. Australia was a bit better. I found it so hard to put quotes and examples in the answers because it took so bloody long to explain why they were relevant to the question grrr.
Thankgod its over

i found the australian drama (sos and tos) to be kinda shite, but i went awesome in the absurd play godot and managed to fill 2 books. Maybe i related more to the absurdism who knows but i am not all that bothered just glad its all finished

I did Australian Contemporary (7 Stages of Grieving and Gary's House) & even though I wasn't really expecting a character question I think I did ok. Did you guys support that statement or argue against it? I argued against it big time.

My other topic was Brecht and that was sweet as.

Well folks, I'm all finished now & congrats to everyone else who is as well, WE MADE IT! :)

took a few mins to comprehend what the questions were asking (Aust. Bush & city (the doll and mother and son) and Irish (plough and playboy) but once i understood they weren't actually too bad, preferred last years questions though. Wrote 11pgs Aust. and 10 for Irish.

hmm that paper was so much harder than i expected, australian was ok (seven stages and no sugar), i argued against the statement. irish was pretty hard (dancing at lughnasa and beauty queen of leenane) but i still managed to fill 2 1/2 books for both so thats ok....im just glad its finally over!!!!!!! :D

Did you all argue against Australian Drama??! I managed to get my hands on a copy of the exam, and my teacher wants us to write an essay. Id agree, i mean look at Gary's House. But id probably end up going the other way for running up a dress. So I'd be a fence sitter! :)

i said that yes, the characters were stereotyped, but that it doesn't weaken the drama. the question was alot more specific than it's been in past years, i was couting on it being quite broad.
