|Synopsis||Gotcha! is a play written in the Brechtian style of the street scene. Set in a court room it explores an event from a variety of different view each time getting exaggerated as each character puts their own spin on it.
The tag line is "Sometimes it's better to judge for yourself."
Casting is very flexiable and can include doubling up, or seperate characters in the re telling. The same characters can even be played by other sexes as this lends itself very well to Brecht's technique of alienation.
Originally written for a group of 12-16 year olds to perform.|
|Cast||Mixed and flexible (minimum 12)|
|Status||Available for performance|

I am a professional equity actor and freelance playwright. Currently I write and perform Theatre in Education productions for professional theatre company Third Edge Ltd.
