Summary This graduate project aims to incorporate and apply the attributes of the seven character types as outlined by Vladimir Propp in Morphology of the Folk Tale by means of the script development and execution of a first-draft new stageplay intended for Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA). The graduate project, entitled The Inca Princess, asks the primary question, "Do Propp's character attributes hold up in contemporary Western society?" Based on the findings, a second question was asked, "Does anything in Propp's character paradigm need to be changed in order for it to fit into the realm of TYA today?" In trying to answer these questions, this graduate project explains the practical application of Propp and discusses the disparities dealt with in executing a script. In the assessment, it also addresses the process and the rationale behind the decisions made during the process. The conclusion of this project is that with modifications on the gender roles, Propp's observations provide a structural framework for characters that is still relevant.
