The key part of the statement is "theatre studies." There is a relatively common acting exercise called "blank scene," in which you take an apparently meaningless series of words and phrases and try to form a scene with them that makes sense. The point of drama is to make sense out of what is given to you. That said, the teacher is being a bit of an asshole. "I'm going to play you something, and you write down what you think it means," kind of carries with it an assumption that there is meaning to be found. The assignment as presented was misleading at best.
