Devised Theater in A Handful of Leaves
When looking at the stories behind the play, I would normally consider turning it into a documentary type film. While I would still consider doing much of it in this fashion, I do feel that devised theater would have much to offer in the way of representing significant portions of the stories so that what is filmed is more of a suplemental and biographical piece that sets the scene between the portions of live theater. In this way, I feel it would seem more personal and real through the footage while still offering the impact of acted scenes that can still in some way potentially incorporate the audience.
