In the scene where they are at the movies it took a little while to figure out that they were at the movies because they were sitting on benches in front of a grey stone wall. There was also a sign that said what movies were playing in the middle of the stage, but the scene was happening on the side of the stage so no one was looking at center stage, making it confusing to figure out where they were. Also, you could not tell that Johnny and Ponyboy were at the church because there was a fence and a hill going up so it made it look like they were at the bottom of the hill and not at the top where the church is. When the church was burning down there was red lights and smoke behind the set which means either means that when Johnny and Ponyboy were supposed to be in the church they actually were on the wrong hill or that the other hill was burning, not the church.

Johnnycake made a kind of gasp and his eyes were smoldering. ‘You know what a Soc is?’ I said, my voice shaking with rage. ‘White trash with Mustangs and madras.’ And then, because I couldn’t think of anything bad enough to call the, I spit at them.” This quote shows a lot about the mood of all the characters, and the whole scene. Bob is trying to me mean, Ponyboy and Johnny are angry, scared, and the whole scene has a bad vibe to it with everyone throwing around insults. When Bob starts talking about greasers, you could tell it was going to be bad because he was drunk earlier in the book and he had jumped Johnny and was just a mean character overall, so what he says has to be mean. You could also tell the mood of Johnny and Ponyboy by the adjectives used to describe their actions. When someone says that they can feel the blood draining from their face, they are usually furious or really, really angry. He also said that what Bob said really hit him, not
