This paper attempts to explain the significant cultural elements necessary for a play set in South Texas. Three important elements that are needed to justify the importance of this production are addressed: Preplanning, Production Record, and Evaluation. Chapter 1: The Preplanning explains the purpose and approach of the play through internal and external analysis. Both of these concepts will help develop the understanding of the culture of a play. Chapter 2: The Production Record contains the complete record of the elements used throughout the production of the play. Chapter 3: The Evaluation of the production describes the success of this South Texas play. Chapter 4: The Conclusion summarizes material presented.
