Abstract: In this Introduction to the Master of Fine Art's Thesis, The Production of a Play for Children: A Song Is A Blue Fish, the director will consider both an historical and a stylistic analysis, relative to the direction of the play. This first part of the Introduction will concern, as its historical analysis, the preparation of the project as a play for Theatre of the Absurd. The second part of the Introduction will concern, as its stylistic consideration, the work to be executed for Theatre of the Absurd. Hopefully, after this Introduction, Part II and Part III will justify the analysis made in Part I. Part II will be the Prompt Book, from which the play will be directed, relative to the study in the Introduction; and Part III will be an introspective criticism of the project, relative to the historical and stylistic considerations of the Absurd. (The Theatre of the Absurd by Martin Esslin has been used almost exclusively as reference for Part I. Mr. Esslin’s book has become a classic on the Absurd and most other references use The Theatre of the Absurd as their source.)
