In Ira Jeffries production, Three Short Plays, Davis plays two characters.
The second character played by Davis was The Bag Lady.
Scottie Davis says she is related to neither of the characters."I'm not gay, I'm not a WWII veteran, and I've never killed anyone".However she does share a strong personality like Delilah Brown.Davis also shared that she did not favor one role over another."The characters are all related in the sense that their black woman trying to confront the obstacles within their lives… they all have a lack of support from men".
To get in tune with a character Davis always does breathing, vocal, and stretching exercises.She believes it is important to become the character physically at first and then develop the character's voice.Outside of acting, Davis does mime and strongly believes the two art forms are very much alike."Mimes communicate with gestures while actors communicate physically and verbally… The greatest of characters are mimes".In addition once Davis gets into character she prefers to be addressed by her character's name.Davis believes the performance of Ira Jeffries'Three Short Plays was a success.
