The Strangeness of Caged Animals is set in a trendy urban apartment block overlooking the river, one midsummer night. It concerns the relationships of six people in three couples who are intrinsically connected to the apartments. The main character is Della, a woman approaching fifty, who wants to move out, but when her plan falls apart she spins out of control, affecting all the other people around her. Essentially each couple has its own story but as the play unfolds they unwittingly become more involved with each other, forcing them to deal with the uncomfortable truth and its sometimes devastating consequences. This thesis contains a critical analysis essay followed by the play text. The essay aims to show how the play came into being, from original concept through to final draft, by looking at the process undertaken and the lessons learnt in the craft of playwriting.
