Add Thread to del. The two posts would be infront of the white fence that are joined by a handrail. I believe the tension is created throughout every aspect of the play. There would also be a clock in the background on stage right. Im particularly interested in what, what happens to Ahmed, is he alive or dead?
The symbolism and representations throughout the set and dialogue is really interesting. November 8, at 2: I would defiantly want to see this on stage. The tension in Norm and Ahmed is maintained at a relatively high level from the first word up until the last few seconds where the tension peaks. I really love Alex Buzo decisions on the twp stereotypes of the characters Norm and Ahmed which contrast really well with one another. Tension is created when Norm continually asks Ahmed questions, often audiences are at the edges of their seats in suspense of what Ahmed might say. Notify me of new comments via email.

Damn I did different topics so I can’t help. You are commenting using your Facebook account. I believe the highest tension is created when Norm offers Ahmed a cigarette anc a lighter. I consider the highest tension point is created when Norm offers Ahmed a cigarette and a lighter.
Why Nrm was so open and comfortable with Ahmed? I would stage it on a traditional stage, for example the one at Roo Theatre. The tension in Norm and Ahmed is maintained at a relatively high level from the first word up until the last few seconds where the tension peaks.

It is as if Norm wanted to talk to Ahmed. I would have everything th in centre stage closer to the front. How would you stage it if you were a direct it?
Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here The setting and the time of night plays a huge aspect. Yes- when speaking about workshops speak in first person. Alex Buzo did a terrific job by making this play meaningful and humorous as well.
Alex Buzo was very creative with how everything in the play interrelates. Email required Address never made public.
I found it to be a very gintense and uncomfortable experience especially the second time reading it knowing what would happen. It would impact on my judgement of the characters. I really enjoyed reading the play.
It would be a traditional theatre stage with a street light in at upstage centre with both the left and right side of the stage completely blacked out except for a large illuminated easay in the background. The two posts would be infront of the white fence that are joined by a handrail.
November 6, at I believe removalsits tension is created throughout every aspect of the play. I think that tension is constantly created through the interaction between the characters, n particular the obvious nervousness of Ahmed and comfortable nature of Morm, its makes you question why Norm is so comfortable and what he is hoping to gain from this random encounter with Ahmed.
Tension is also created when Norm feels as if Ahmed is trying to outdo him; he finds this offensive and retaliates accordingly.

I would have a backdrop of a quiet street with street fhe lining the edge of the stage. It was definitely a tenser play than The Removalists although there is far less action within the story. There would be some scaffolding behind them at the back and infront ahmes the scaffold would be the white fence with mesh rising above it. Though I would follow all the set directions given, as they are important symbols to enhance the plays meaning.
Despite, that it does not have as much action as The Removalists, I love the fact that it is still just as powerful.
Throughout the play tension slowly builds with initial points of contact created by Norm to Ahmed for example when Norm first meets Ahmed. Some advice, in any way, shape or form would be excellent. I would also like to know both Ahmed before meeting Norm and vice versa. The easay would be set esay the centre of the stage, with the bin on the right and the bus.
I really enjoyed Norm and Ahmed! A very clever piece of text.
