Saved; a record and analysis of a production Gray, John


Saved, a play by Edward Bond, was produced and directed by John Gray in partial fulfilment of the requirements for a Master of Arts degree, in the Department of Theatre at The University of British Columbia, at the Dorothy Somerset Studio Theatre, from October 21 to October 24, 1970. The following is a detailed record of that production, together with the director's analysis and interpretation of the script. Saved was performed by a predominantly student cast, in costumes and setting designed by Astrid Janson, and with the technical direction of Richard Spencer. This record is divided into three main sections. The first is a short section setting forth as simply as possible the specific directorial concept used for this production, together with a comment on the language of the play. The second section contains a unit-by-unit analysis of Saved, together with notes on the groundplan, design, and costumes for the play. The third section is made up of the prompt script of the production, showing blocking, division into units, notes on motivations, and lighting and scenery cues. The promptbook is preceded by a scale groundplan for the production, a props list, and pictures of the production with notes on the scenes depicted.
