And what was this big mistake? Well, let’s just say John couldn’t keep it in his pants. Proctor, a proud and upstanding member of the community, sees himself as nothing more than a low-down sinner, and a fake. Although John Proctor undergoes some pretty serious changes as a person; from a deceitful sinner to a courageous, devoted, and ultimately good Christian, across the entire play he remains a tormented man who cannot escape his internal demons.
In the first act of the play, after Roderigo finds out that Othello married Desdemona, he carries out a dialogue with Iago about Iago’s discontentment with Othello, Roderigo comments, “What a full fortune does the thick-lips owe,/ If he can carry it thus!” With this, Roderigo shows his feelings of jealousy for Othello, basically stating that luck was on Othello’s side in getting Desdemona, but it will probably not last very long. In addition to this, Roderigo gives Brabantio large sums of money to Iago in order to try to get Desdemona from Othello. In addition to Roderigo’s jealousy, Iago’s jealousy of Cassio cascades to the point where he begins to manipulate Othello to want to kill Cassio, which ends up leading to the death of Desdemona. In the beginning, Iago details how he was passed up for a promotion by Othello.

Throughout most of the play, she is portrayed as powerful and confident, and more daring than Macbeth himself, though this image changes when she shows signs of weakness, resulting in her death. In Lady Macbeth’s first appearance in the play, Act 1, Scene 7, she behaves in contentious ways that might lead the audience to question her morals. After reading the letter in which Macbeth shares the news, the first words in her soliloquy show her determination and ambition: “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor - and shalt be what thou art promised!” The fact that she states that he shall be what is promised and become king, shows that she is aware of her own strengths and influence over Macbeth.
Even just seeing more of the World Fair’s grandeur in the background of scenes would help increase the sense of world-building for this movie. HOLMES LOSES EDGE Holmes is a fantastically crafted villain up until right after he kills Pickett in his giant furnace. In the third act of the script, Holmes doesn’t seem as devilish or interesting after he falls in love with Emeline. His character shifts from feeling like a cold serial-killer to being a crazy boyfriend, which does not mesh well with the actions and desires of his character as set up in the first act.

While many strive for success to avoid suffering, these circumstances are useless for moulding desirable characteristics. However, even though it is uncomfortable and correlated with failure, disaster is a necessary evil in the pursuit of growth. In his play, The Crucible, Arthur Miller demonstrates that when an individual faces adversity, it forces them to make a choice that will positively develop their identity, which otherwise would remain dormant in prosperous situations. John Proctor, the protagonist, is an independent and respectable farmer in a struggling marriage because he was unfaithful to his wife.
The doctors that found her assumes a feminine role saying, “I think, but dare not speak (5.1.69).” Lady Macbeth’s power, at that point, had become so strong that male characters were acting in ways that were expected of women. Her power, along with her insanity, left the Doctor dumbfounded. Men expected women to think but not speak. This swap of roles starts the end of the play with the start of downfall of the Macbeths.
39 Steps is a play that's a comedic spoof of The 39 Steps film. The play is currently playing at the Union Square Theater and this is the first time that I have ever seen a play in my life and it was a one of a kind experience. With its 4 actors playing over 150 roles is a play that's quick and fast paced for the one that enjoy it. The purpose of the playwright is to use quick changing scenes to be a comedic spoof. It uses satire to overexaggerate a majority of the scenes in the play.
