    As the play I am using is a 19th century piece, my aim was for the audience to be transported into this seemingly perfect doll house setting as if it were a 19th century time capsule. ‘’Theatre is not simply a place you go to but a place you go through.’’ (Howard. 2009, p.81). The space I have chosen to perform A Doll’s House is The Keynes Library, 43 Gordon Square located in Bloomsbury. This site has a doll house like quality through its victorian architectural design. The location itself is adorned with a rich heritage that I find to be fitting with the nature and popularity of this iconic play. ‘’Describing place is the ‘location’ of the form of site specific performance as a discrete discipline with its own…

This article also emphasizes the impossibility of finding a single definition for the term “myth.” I was interested in reading the different ideas on myth, however I agreed that no one person had the correct, all encompassing, definition for a myth.

    “The Death of the Moth”, by Virginia Woolf, and “The Spider and the Wasp”, by Alexander Petrunkevitch, had both similar and different ways of expressing tones.

By doing this, “Not only were the laws of the land were abandoned, but the laws of gravity and the laws of motion as well.” (Vonnegut…

Her own two specific pieces of experiences reveal women’s struggle in today’s society and also try to provide solutions for defending women’s rights.…
