Both Our Town by Thornton Wilder and Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare require audience and cast imagination. In Our Town, the set is minimalistic and there are very few props. Because of the lack of stage decorum, the cast must make their characters believable through their actions as well as their words. For example, there is no Webb or Gibbs house in Act 1: there are no walls to take aprons off of, no stove or sink. To give the illusion of a kitchen and house, the actors playing Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Gibbs must pantomime a morning routine and rely on other cast members to be the walls when props are needed.

The concept of the signs is intelligent, however, it has very little significance. As a result, there is little foreshadowing. The signs are pointless, and do not create much entertainment, nor creates importance to the plot, scene, or play. In addition, the signs were often difficult to read.

Numerous teens across the state of Indiana wake up each morning with their minds swirling with thoughts. Teens have to eat a hearty breakfast to get them through the day, rummage through clothes just to find the right thing to wear, and make sure they have everything in their school bag among other things.
