- The dramatic scenes, from “365 Days/ 365 Plays by Susan Lori-Parks were short and
fascinating to read. The first short scene that I read was “blackbird” and it was quite
funny to read. It seems like it was a scene created through improvisation. It was change
from the typical dramatic scenes you read because it incorporated slangs and racial slurs
into the dialogue. Lori-Parks also incorporated potential dialectic slangs, for example
depending on the character that was speaking, the speaker iterated the word /your/ for
“Y r”. Therefore, leading the audience to believe that the characters may derive from a
specific location or use slang when speaking. The two scenes had a play on two vary
different events. I did not enjoy reading the second excerpt because it only described
the character licking something and her enjoying what she’s licking. Lori-Parks used to
much description and it was not needed in this excerpt. In my opinion, it was quite an
odd read.
- Following the reading of Anaïs’ work, I noticed that she is someone who is very
passionate about what she wrote. When reading her work, you can tell that she uses her
personal experiences to get inspiration for what she writes.
