Cognitive Complexity and Theatrical Information Processing: Audience Responses to "The Homecoming" and "Private Lives."
Gourd, William
Confined to the interaction of complexity/simplicity of the stimulus play, this paper both focuses on the differing patterns of response between cognitively complex and cognitively simple persons to the characters in "The Homecoming" and "Private Lives" and attempts to determine the responses to specific characters or groups of characters. The subjects for the study were 60 female and 30 male undergraduates in six sections of speech and English classes at Bowling Green State University. The results of the study are presented in both graphic and narrative form, and a summary of the statistical operations is included. (RB)
