Devising Theatre: Are You Stuck?

Don’t know where to start with your piece?

The stimuli you have is not inspiring you anymore?

Are you stuck?

Here, try something different. Don’t worry about whether it fits in with your piece or not, just see where it takes you. Answer the questions below.

What are they saying?

Who are they talking about?

Are they women… or witches?

What kind of world do they live in?

Who are their neighbours?

What sounds can they hear around them?

If they were talking about your story, what would they say?

If they were talking about your characters, what would they say? Who would be their favourite? Who would they hate?

(Remember, talk about the story and the characters, not you as performers and your piece as creation.)
