reponse to theme in play

Living out is a very beautiful play. It showed me the real world through words, and what I'm referring to is the basics of humanity and how people truly are. As a human being it's in our natural instinct to survive no matter what even if we have to lie. That is exactly what the main female Ana did, she lied till the very end. At first glance of the story I thought Ana would tell Nancy (Ana's boss) that her other son was with her in America,  but bad things just kept falling on her and she had to keep her job no matter what. So when things finally get brighter Ana's son dies and she gets fired from her job and finds another, her and her husband have to work harder to work off the hospital bill for her sons death. Even then Ana did not tell Nancy that her son had died. That told me that only Nancy had viewed as friends and for Ana it was a boss and worker type of thing.

  1. This is an extremely thoughtful response to the play. You identify an interesting and important theme: the human instinct of survival. You explore this theme by looking closely at Ana's actions and motivation. Really good work here! Mimi
