Sonny Blues Paul Pearshall once said “Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted”.

The Narrator feels responsible for his brother’s heroin addiction because he believed he shut his brother’s career goals down, felt as though he went against what his mother asked him to do, and because he chose not to believe that the way he treated his brother affected his brother life.

I was really unfamiliar with the family dynamics of a African household, however I think I have a better understanding of the family dynamics. The father is usually expected to be a breadwinner for the family and always expects the children to be high achievers. The accents in the play were very different from what I am used to. These accents were sometimes hard to understand, however I think it was necessary to get authenticity from the play. There a lot of inside jokes that people who are from African cultures understood that I did not ,but I still thought the play was hilarious.
