Decide on a series of question to ask your subjects that relate to the topic “Being a Muslim in America today” “Being Gay in America Today” and/or “Being a White Supremacist in America Today”. If you have a different idea for Multicultural/Diversity monologues, let me know and I may or may not approve them as diversity.
Find 7 to 10 people who are either Gay, Muslim or White Supremacist. They will have to self identify when you ask them point blank.
Assure them that their real names will not be used in the monologue and make up a character name for them with their input and help.
Take notes as you ask the questions. If they will permit, you may tape record the conversation.
From your notes craft a one minute monologue using their words and intentions.
Compile all seven to ten monologues into a paper with an introductory paragraph, a list of the questions you asked the subjects, and a brief paragraph as to where you found your subjects and how the process went.
After the monologue entries, write a summary paragraph about your experience.
I will attach two examples below

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapters 3 and 5 in your course textbook.
Prepare
As you prepare to write this discussion, take a few moments to do the following:
Review the grading rubric
downloadfor this discussion.
Select a film from this list of approved choices
download.
Note: If you would like to write about a film that is not on this list, you must email your professor for approval in advance or you may not receive credit on this discussion.
Reflect
It can be easier to grasp the importance of the term mise-en-scène if we break it down into its component elements. Each one of these elements works to create meaning and tell the story. This week, you will look at the impact of lighting choices on the creation of meaning in a film.
In any film, the intensity and direction of lighting will influence how an image is perceived by the viewer, and it can establish or enforce particular themes. Think back over films you have watched and consider how the use of lighting in key scenes helped establish the theme or tone. Think about how lighting affects your perception of certain characters and moments. Consider how these uses of lighting work in shaping the story and its themes.
Write (due Thursday, Day 3)
In at least 250 words, and using specific examples from your chosen film, write a post in which you
Identify the type of lighting used (traditional three-point, high-key, or low-key) and assess the impact of the lighting used to establish the theme.
Describe the typical effects of the style of lighting being used.
Explain how this technique contributes to the theme.
Discuss how the lighting advances the story.
Compare how the scene might play if different choices had been made.
You must use at least two outside sources, in any combination of embedded video clips, still photos, or scholarly sources. All sources should be documented in APA style as outlined by the University of Arizona Global Campus Writing Center (Links to an external site.).

answering ALL QUESTIONS below:
ing To the Theatre
List the title of the play you attended, the theatre that was putting it on, and the
date and day of the week that you attended.
• Describe the environment (what was the space like) or atmosphere (what
was the vibe like) of the theatre.
• Describe the location of your seat in relationship to the stage.
• Describe the audience. What was their general age, how did they dress, and
what was the energy of the crowd upon arrival?
• Describe the design aspects (set, lights, sound) that are noticeable before the
play begins. (This can help us shape our expectations. For example, if there is
a giant stone cross onstage, bathed in red light, and they are playing somber
organ music, it may not be a comedy).
• Describe how these first impressions shape your expectations.
What Was It About
• What was the play about? What do you think the author of the play trying to
communicate to the audience? Was there a lesson or moral?
• Which character changed the most and how did they change?• Describe the genre (category) of the play. Was it comedy, tragedy,
melodrama, tragicomedy or musical? Some plays defy traditional genres. If
that is the case, or if you are unsure, describe the genre in your own words.
• Was it realistic or nonrealistic or somewhere in between? (Remember to
evaluate the 5 aspects of realism: plot, characters, language, environment
and style).
• Did you identify with one of the characters? If so, describe this character and
why you identified with him or her.
Design Aspects
• What information was conveyed by the scenery about time, place,
characters, and situation?
• How was this information conveyed to you (give examples)?
• What type of “world” was it?
• Address these same questions with regard to lighting, sound and
costumes. Make sure to give specific examples when talking about
each design element.
• Did the design aspects seem appropriate to the production? Why or why
not? Be specific.
Assessing The Performance
• What was the production attempting to do?
• Did the artists achieve this goal?
• Was the attempt worthwhile? Why or why not? (These are the most
important questions, as they allow us to be more objective. For example,
if you determine the production was a silly comedy attempting to make
us laugh and forget our troubles for 2 hours, assess whether or not the
artists achieved this goal. If you laughed and the rest of the audience
seemed to have a great time, perhaps they did achieve their goal. You
might rather see a play with more substance, and, if so, the next
questions would be a place to talk about whether you “liked” it or not).
• Were the actors believable, given the requirements of the play? If they
were believable, how did they seem to accomplish this? If they weren’t
believable, what occurred to impair or destroy believability?
• The director unifies a production and frequently provides an
interpretation of the text. Did there seem to be a unifying idea behind
the production? If so, how would you express it?
Overall Experience
• How did your experience compare to your expectations?
• What was the reaction of the audience? Was it similar or different to
your reaction?
• Did the experience leave a lasting impression? If so, describe in what
way.
• Based on this experience, would you go to the theatre again? Why or
why not

In general, the breakdown of the paper should be: (Please follow this breakdown)

In general, the breakdown of the paper should be: (Please follow this breakdown)
Introduction
Identify the goal of the play*
Overall impression of the play
(These above 3 items should collectively be between 15% and 20% of your critique)
Summary of Plot. (This should be no more than 30% of you critique)
Spelling and Grammar
Production Elements – 4 required (Acting, Directing, Set Design, Lighting and Costumes) (This should be the largest portion of your paper / 30-35%)
Conclusion (at least 50 Words) Please restate the goal of the play and if it was achieved)
I am looking for YOUR opinion and analysis of the play. There are no right and wrong answers when it comes to your opinion and analysis. The only thing you can really do wrong is to not analyze the play (see bottom of page 23).
The three biggest mistakes that students make are:
1-write too much about the storyline (plot) and too little on production elements.
2-not write 2,000 words.
3-not have an opinion
*The goal of a play is what the audience is supposed to learn or take away from the performance. The goal of most plays is something deeper than “The goal was to entertain the audience” or “The goal was to make you laugh”. Although, for some comedies and some musicals, the goal might be able to be summed up so succinctly. Even in those cases, you could explain why you think the goal was that simple.
For Romeo and Juliet, the goal might be: To make the audience think about the impact of 2 two family’s hatred of one another on their children.
For Star Wars the goal might be: To show that good will conquer evil, and do it the edge of your seat, adventurous style.”
For Black Panther the goal might be: To show the audience that fear of the unknown is not a reason to hide behind your borders, that open sharing of culture and advancement helps everyone.
Please review the following play critique. The word count is less than your requirement as this was for another class with a different expectation.
