This play can relate to today’s world because there are cases like this all the time.But not only the murder side, but the law side as well.
A story about a wife killing their husband is not too common, but what was really interesting to me was the fact that she hung him.
Normally, when you think of a person being hung, you think of suicide, but that’s not the case.
Also, you would think that a woman would not be physically able to hang their husband.
In this play, the wife is suspected of murdering her husband, but they are looking for a motive.
Her first speech reflects her duty to the law, “It was an awful thing was done in this house that night (678).
She feels someone should be punished for the crime. Wright, remembering the loss of her child, “I know what stillness is 678).
It showed how woman in that time were smarter than what their husbands believed them to be.
The men believed in the women taking care of the home and the family.
I liked the turmoil between the women, but loved how they stuck together.
I liked the fact that the men were suppose to be superior to the woman because they care about the little things like trifles, but it was the woman that actually solved the case.
