    A bit too fast and distasteful for my liking

    I liked this play a great deal and found myself wondering how audiences would react to it—especially audiences of very young people From the first line “Mother Hicks is a witch” it is clear that witchcraft is going to be a prevalent theme of the play and I wonder how this plays to children who are scared of “witches ghosts and monsters” Personally I found the WPA aspect interesting and actually had no idea that WPA jobs and people with WPA affiliations carried such a negative stigma This is certainly something that I will be researching in the months ahead Additionally I found myself drawing connections to the difficult financial climate of the era and the climate of today and wonder if anyone is writing about the unemployment and insurance crisis of today in a voice suitable for young audiences “Gone is the money in the bankgone are the jobsgone are the homes and the families and their plansbut they seemed so safe” rang particularly meaningful in our current economic situation 265

    Alright I might be partial to the play Our school just did this play and one a state theatre conference for it I was on crew so I know the whole thing inside and out While I never cried with this play it touched my heart Girl wants a name Mother Hicks is a sad mother with problems of her own well I guess she is not technically a mother She used to mother babies The deaf boy tuc wants a friend though the boy was played by a girl in our play I love this play very much and I recommend Dark of the Moon It's a similar play that goes on some of the things brought up in this one Over all I love it

    A decent play I don't like the lack of name for the main character and I thought the ending was very cheesy
