The filmed version is the film adaptation, the film or the movie.
TAKE HOME FINAL EXAM
The final exam will be a written assignment about the elements and concepts in the style of comedy known as Farce which is found in the CSUF productions of The Merry Wives of Windsor and Don’t Dress for Dinner and in the films The Producers and Noises Off viewed in class.

Take home final exam papers are due in my office, CPAC 230, by 6 p.m. on May 26th.
