The interior of a bus station.
I need help in order to understand this play throughly. Therefore, I will write down the entire play step by step. I will ask simple questions referring to the passage(s) which I will quote.
The drab interior of a bus station along a deserted highway somewhere in the midwest. There are two long benches stage Right1, back to back; one faces the audience and one faces the rear wall. A door up Center2 leads out onto3 the road. It has a single glass pane in the top and the bottom is wooden. Two doors, up Left4 and down Left5. Up Left door reads Men; down Left door reads ''Women.''6 The room is lighted by an overhanging light with a dull green shade. A large bus schedule on the wall up Right Center7. A window is up8 Right of Center and another at Right.
What does Heat Lightning mean?
1: What does stage Right mean and why is the first letter of Right capital?
2: What does up Center mean and why is the first letter of Center capital?
3: What does onto mean?
4: What do up Left and down Left?
5: What does up Right Center mean and why are the first letters of Right and Center capital?
6: I think period shouldn't be included in inverted commas. But I think in American English period is included in inverted commas. Right?
7: What does up Right Center mean and why are the first letters of Right and Center capital?
8: What does up mean?
3: What does onto mean? In this case, the information is that a door in the backset is putatively leading out onto a street outside the set.
Please check Question No.1 at the start of this thread. There is no specific stage direction called Right. So, what does ''there are two long benches stage Right'' mean?
Please also check my Question No.6.
Also check my Question No.7. There is no stage direction as up Right Center. Yes, there is a stage direction known as Right Center.
Check my Question No.8 which refers to this line, ''A window is up Right of Center and another at Right''. There are no stage directions known as up Right of Center and Right.
Here's another, re Heat Lightning:
I assume that you have read the play. In what way Carroll is using the term Heat Lightning as a metaphor.
