Chapel Perilous and the Removalists Essay

This student studied:
HSC - Year 12 - Drama

Australian theatre broke away from the traditional fabrication of reality, a new wave of theatre saw playwrights using a variety of styles and conventions to provoke and challenge audiences onstage. New wave theatre saw playwrights bring to the stage controversial and taboo themes surrounding the reformation of the Australian identity. Dorothy Hewett’s play Chapel Perilous draws on a mixture of styles such as realism, epic and Elizabethan theatre to present the themes of sexuality, individualism and conformist authoritarian control as we follow protagonist Sally Banner. Whereas David Williamson’s play The Removalists focuses on gender stereo types, abuse of power (police force) and changing social values.
