Dramaturgy for End Days
Dr. Daina Robins
As the dramaturg for End Days, I researched aspects of the play in order to educate the cast and crew on the lesser known topics mentioned in the script. This large range of topics included Stephen Hawking and his book, A Brief History of Time, as well as information on 9/11, what Ground Zero looks like today, Elvis Presley, and various Doomsday prophecies. I compiled my findings into a binder that was available for the cast and crew to reference. I also spent the beginning of one rehearsal presenting my findings to the cast. In addition to this research, I attended production meetings for the play and wrote a dramaturgical program note sharing my experience. Finally, I wrote the text and found images for the informational lobby display posters that were available for theatregoers to look at before the performances.
