Question 1: Before the Collaborate
Write on the play. Themes? I think there’s more to say about this one regarding structure and form? What might you say? What are the confessions? What purpose do they serve? What is a rest and what is a spell? What theatrical relevance might you infer on these literary devices? (Wikipedia defines allusion as “…a figure of speech that makes a reference to, or a representation of, people, places, events, literary work, myths, or works of art, either directly or by implication.” This play “alludes” to work from before the Common Era and work from 1850. Any idea what they are and what significance they have? Is this play about race? What does this play say to you about poverty and education? Is this play shocking? Why and to what effect? Does this play address the current, national debate concerning the minimum wage? How?
Discuss Park’s VOICE as a playwright. How do her characters speak and why?
Why might YOU produce this play? What might it say about your world and your reality? About education? About the cost of education? About marginalized populations?
Question 2: After the Collaborate
1) What theory in math, physics and philosophy did we discuss and how does it relate to the play?
2) Name 2 uses of theatricality in IN THE BLOOD.
3) Discuss culpability and the confessions. How do you feel about the issue of implied culpability? What are our responsibilities for the wrongs in the world? For the historical wrongs of our nation, our race or our species?
4) Give me an equally balanced presentation, BOTH SIDES (non judgemental, objective), of a current firebrand, partisan political issue that you see as something addressed by this play.
