The central issue in the play was the rich vs. the poor and how the poor didn't have much of a say. This helped me come to the realization that in real life many of us are really fortunate, but some not as much, and we need to look out for those people. I didn't know much about the subject matter before the play. It didn't change my views as much as enhance them and bring them to light. It somewhat relates to my family adopting my sister who's biological mother couldn't care for her.
