Abstract
Writing and performing a one-person play was selected as the basis for a thesis project in the spring semester of 2010 to be presented to to the Graduate Faculty of the Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Fine Arts in the Department of Theatre. The thesis will include an introduction, a review of the literature that inspired the original production, the full text of both scripts that were used, a chapter on the process of discovering a new play, a section about future plans for the play, and a conclusion. The purpose of this thesis is to explore the way that an actor may go about creating, performing, and revising a one-person play.
