The Cost of Living
For this paper, you need to read the play Cost of Living, by Martyna Majok. You can find this play through the school bookstore, or purchase the Kindle edition (or other e-reader), or you can access the play on Scribd.com Chapter Four of your book (Appreciation of Theatre) describes how actors think about character motivations in order to develop a stage performance. For this paper, I want you to apply that to the four characters in Cost of Living. For each character, I want you to answer these questions: –What is this character’s background? (Think: class, race, gender, education level, etc.) –What is this character’s relationship with the other character[s] they interact with in this play? –What does this character want from the other character[s] they interact with in the play? –How does this character behave in order to get what they want from other characters?
