The Emotional Experience
This play allowed all of us the chance to open our eyes to the world and how it was before we all had the privileges and blessings that we have today. Our grandparents and even some of our parents had to live through times like this in the United States, and it took a lot of hard work to become the nation with the labor laws and healthcare that we have today. This helped me come clean with my thoughts in the sense that it helped provide me with a refreshed outlook on life. It allowed me the opportunity to reflect on what life could have been for us, and realize that some people still live this as a reality. It helped me realize how truly blessed we all are.
during the talkback, the question that was asked was, "to what extent do you think the theater brings about social change?" I think that the theater brings about social change by discussing topics that would typically be difficult to talk about in real day to day life. It allows us to open our minds to the things that we are not used to.
