Research the theories of Antonin Artaud and the Theater of Cruelty. Analyze The Balcony in this context.
Compare and contrast The Balcony with Jean- Paul Sartre’s play No Exit (1943). Especially focus on the characters of Irma in The Balcony and Inez in No Exit. How do the two women try to control their situation?
Do sociological and psychological research into women who become prostitutes. Why do women like Carmen chose to stay at the brothel instead of going to find their daughters? Is the portrayal of prostitution in The Balcony accurate?
