An Introduction to THE SELFISH GIANT

by Tara Haas, dramaturg

Welcome all and thanks for joining me on the 4th WALL. I will be your dramaturg for The Selfish Giant, and will be updating this blog weekly with all kinds of behind the scenes information. The Selfish Giant, an original story by Oscar Wilde, has been adapted for the stage by BYU’s own Teresa Love. As an endearing family show, this production will incorporate many fun and exciting elements, with a large emphasis on puppetry. The designers and production team have been hard at work creating and constructing in their specific areas, and the cast begins rehearsals next week. I am very excited to move into the rehearsal process, and to keep you all informed in the process of creating this wonderful show. Make sure you keep this one on your radar because you do not want to miss it!

A 1930s Dramaturgy "Soiree"

The world of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit is a rather far cry from the world that we are familiar with today. As such, a dedicated portion of our dramaturgical work for this production focused on helping the creative team become more comfortable and familiar with this brief look into the 1930s.

A Swing for the Supernatural

If you will see, or have seen, the BYU Theatre production of Blithe Spirit this June, you may notice that there are two names in the cast list who are not given a character role, but simply the role of “Swing.” Just what is a swing, and why are they important for a production? As dramaturg, I interviewed our two swing actors to get their perspectives - and definitions - of this important role.
