Sample Text:
Through an analysis of how different productions of Martin McDonagh’s Irish play The Lieutenant of Inishmore and Neil Labute’s realism play The Shape of Thingsutilise confronting material to provoke humour and emotionally confront their audiences, a greater understanding of the importance of discussing these taboos is achieved.

The Tempest notes

This student studied:
HSC - Year 12 - English (Advanced)

Notes on Discovery. The Tempest is a play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written in 1610–11, and thought by many critics to be the last play that Shakespeare wrote alone. It is set on a remote island, where Prospero, the rightful Duke of Milan, plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place using illusion and skilful manipulation. He conjures up a storm, the eponymous tempest, to lure his usurping brother Antonio and the complicit King Alonso of Naples to the island. There, his machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio's lowly nature, the redemption of the King, and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso's son, Ferdinand.
