Through this play, Wilson is trying to show the audience that fathers definitely have a lasting impact on their kids throughout their lives. An audience sees this through the character Troy, in how his rough relationship with his father causes him to treat his two sons with a strict and demanding attitude. Although Troy distanced himself from his father at the age of fourteen, he still had a burdened relationship that affected him in the long term. This recurs again with Lyons and Cory when they both try to set apart from what their father wants them to do, and at the end of the play, they feel as though they turned out just like their father. The main ideal that Wilson is trying to show his audience that those who we surround ourselves with have such a lasting influence that can change our whole way of living and carrying ourselves.
