Slam the Door

That's much more powerful and visual writing. On the stage, on the television or the cinema screen, a lone actress can't turn to the audience or camera and declare, 'I'm really angry'- well, it wouldn't be very dramatic if she did. So what does she do? She rips up the photo of some heartless swine and puts a hammer to his hi-fi. If she tells me she's angry, I know she's angry. But if she shows me, then I might just start to feel some of that anger.
