The Madness of Adaptation: Analysis of Film Adaptations of Alan Bennett's The Madness of George III and The History Boys
Moravec, Jaromír ; Pilný, Ondřej (advisor) ; Wallace, Clare (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on adaptation processes present in the transfer of Alan Bennett's plays The Madness of George III and The History Boys from stage to film. The former was considered a mediocre play but its film adaptation can be found on the British Film Institute's list of the country's greatest films while the latter is a critically acclaimed play but its adaptation received mixed reviews and is generally seen as inferior to the stage version. This thesis is to determine why did the two adaptation processes bear such different results despite the same creative team being responsible for both of them. Both processes are first analysed separately, with the analysis of the changes made to The Madness of George III is primarily focused on separate characters and aspects of the story while the changes present in the film version of The History Boys are primarily examined chronologically as the play's first and second half were adapted differently for the screen. After the analysis, both processes are compared. The analysed changes made to The Madness of King George contain a largely condensed and efficient opening, the King, who is cemented as an active protagonist, Capt. Greville, a minor character used to highlight a theme of cold efficiency being favoured in court over empathy, the...

Formal Experiments in Selected Plays by Tim Crouch
Kopečná, Alena ; Wallace, Clare (advisor) ; Pilný, Ondřej (referee)
Thesis Abstract The thesis provides an analysis of three plays - My Arm (2002), An Oak Tree (2005) and The Author (2009) - by Tim Crouch, one of the most prominent contemporary British theatre- makers. Particular attention is paid to Crouch's use of innovative dramaturgical methods in order to activate his audience. Despite its increasing popularity, audience participation has been a rather neglected area of theatre studies, therefore the thesis includes a brief overview of the discourse as well as an introduction of related concepts and movements, such as experimental theatre and In-Yer-Face theatre. The focal points of discussion are, among others, spectatorship, particularly the theory of The Emancipated Spectator (2008) as proposed by Jacques Rancière, and Émile Coué's concept of autosuggestion, both very prominent in all three plays. Essentially, the main focus of the work is on the specifics of Crouch's treatment of the audience and the methods, both theoretical and practical he utilises to achieve an activated audience while keeping the said participation meaningful. Crouch argues against using dramaturgical tools purely for their shock value and offers a vision of theatre where imagination and autosuggestion are significantly more impactful than elaborate props and overly realistically-looking...
