Writing a script is a new experience for me. I have never imagined how I start to write it. I worked with my friend to write and to brainstorm ideas of the plot. This assignment required 3 drafts to be submitted to and to get commentary by the tutor and lecturer as well.
I was pleased to hear that both tutor and lecturer did not have any opposition to reject our script. We started to brainstorm ideas relating to any issue happened among young teenagers these days before we arranged the conflicts and events in the plot of the story. We had decided to put more conflicts in the rising actions. This had to ensure that readers would get hints of the whole situation and the title itself. On the climax, we had decided to put the main character’s determination with the significance of butterfly to tell the readers that it was the turning point. As for the falling actions, we thought that the main character should have conscience of herself, then it led to the resolution where she determinedly wanted to change herself for better life.
The title of this play is Nurjanah. Nurjanah, as we thought, is a very significant name to remember. Bearing this name with such a fat body is a laughing stock among teenagers. In the play, she had been treated badly, prejudiced and stereotyped.
I would like to thank my friend who was a partner for writing our play that he conjured brilliant ideas during the process.
