DRAMA PORTFOLIO 2
For coursework unit two I have studied HOMELESSNESS and REFUGEES. I have explored:
*The meaning of homelessness and refugees.
*The reasons that make people homeless.
*Society's attitudes towards the homeless and refugees.
AREA OF STUDY 1: CHARACTER AND CONTEXT:
Basically, 'homeless' means people who have nowhere to live, and 'refugees' means people who have been forced to leave their country, either because there is a war there or because of their political or religious beliefs.
Before we look at the reasons that make people especially teenagers homeless, let us look at what the word HOME means to the homeless:
Home is where you live, where you feel comfortable, a place to sleep in; it is where you feel safe and secure. Home is somewhere you return to, it is happiness and its life.
Nearly 50% of the people who are homeless and live in the UK are teenagers. In addition, the reasons they became homeless are:
*Parents breaking up
One character that I created was the teenager Yasmine, who became homeless because of her step-dad who treated her very badly. When she went to search for a job, she was rejected because she was under age and she did not have any qualifications for the job. I thought it was important to create three-dimensional characters that the audience could relate to. This was why I decided my character should be a teenager and why I chose to set my plays in recognizable British cities.
AREA OF STUDY 2: STRUCTURE AND PLOT:
