characters from the following dramatis personae. Prepare to
dramatize one or more of the characters from The World of Jack
Parsons (WJP) in improvised scenarios based on George
Morgan’s script. Many of these characters based on “real-life”
people during the time period 1920s until Parson’s death in
1952. The goal is to create stage characters with specific
histories and explore the “lived relation to the real” in the World
of JP. Some of the characters might be fictional, attempt to
create an indelible stage image of him or her to present back in
improvised scenes with others.
