One of the main things that a Director needs to do is to convey a clear story.

Director’s (or Production) Concept: A central idea that unifies all elements of the production to make it unique.

What ideas were conveyed? How did the director convey these ideas through their work?

Please read the short absurdist play Come and Go by Samuel Beckett and decide on a conceptual design that might work for the play to help tell the story. Defend your ideas and let me know HOW you will convey these ideas for the "performance".

Come and Go A dramaticule by Samuel Beckett Sitting center side by side stage right to left FLO, VI and RU. Very erect, facing front, hands clasped in laps. Silence. VI: When did we three last meet? RU: Let us not speak. Silence. Exit VI right. Silence. FLO: Ru. RU: Yes. FLO: What do you think of Vi? RU: I see little change. FLO moves to center seat, whispers in RU's ear. Appalled. Oh! They look at each other. FLO puts her finger to her lips. Does she not realize? FLO: God grant not. Enter VI. FLO and RU turn back front, resume pose. VI sits right. Silence. Just sit together as we used to, in the playground at Miss Wade's. RU: On the log. Silence. Exit FLO left. Silence. Vi. VI: Yes. RU: How do you find FLO? VI: She seems much the same. RU moves to center seat, whispers in VI's ear. Appalled. Oh! They look at each other. RU puts her finger to her lips. Has she not been told? RU: God forbid. Enter FLO. RU and VI turn back front, resume pose. FLO sits left. Holding hands . . . that way. FLO: Dreaming of . . . love. Silence. Exit RU right. Silence. VI: Flo. FLO: Yes. VI: How do you think Ru is looking? FLO: One sees little in this light. VI moves center seat, whispers in FLO's ear. Appalled. Oh! They look at each other. VI puts her finger to her lips. Does she not know? VI: Please God not. Enter RU. VI and FLO turn back front, resume pose. RU sits right. Silence. May we not speak of the old days? Silence. Of what came after? Silence. Shall we hold hands in the old way? After a moment they join hands as follows: VI's right hand with RU's right hand. VI's left hand with FLO's left hand, FLO's right hand with RU's left hand, VI's arms being above RU's left arm and FLO's right arm. The three pairs of clasped hands rest on the three laps. Silence. FLO: I can feel the rings. Silence. CURTAIN NOTES 1 Exits The figures are not seen to go off stage. They should disappear a few steps from lit area. If dark not sufficient to allow this, recourse should be had to screens or drapes as little visible as possible. Exits and entrances slow, without sound of feet. Obs Three very different sounds. Voices As low as compatible with audibility. Colorless except for three 'ohs' and two lines following. Written in English early in 1965. First published in French by Editions de Minuit, Paris, in 1966. First published in English by Calder and Boyars, London, in 1967. First produced as Kommen und Gehen, translated by Elmar Tophoven, at the Schiller-Theater Werkstatt, Berlin, on 14 January 1966. First performed in English at the Peacock Theatre, Dublin, on 28 February 1968 and subsequently at the Royal Festival Hall, London, on 9 December 1968. Originally at http://www.drama21c.net/text/come&go.htm Lighting Soft, from above only and concentrated on playing area. Rest of stage as dark as possible. Costume Full-length coats, buttoned high, dull violet (RU), dull red (Vi), dull yellow (Flo). Drab nondescript hats with enough brim to shade faces. Apart from color differentiation three figures as alike as possible. Light shoes with rubber soles. Hands made up to be as visible as possible. No rings apparent. Seat Narrow bench-like seat, without back, just long enough to accommodate three figures almost touching. As little visible as possible. It should not be clear what they are sitting on. 2 ...
