For this discussion, I would like you to think about Mrs. Wright and justification for her defense. Some things to think about are:
- Is there any defense that can be given for Mrs. Wright’s actions? Is she justified in what she did? Keep in mind the setting of this play in 1916 when thinking about this.
- Is there any justification for how Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale responded at the end of the play? What is your reaction to the ending?
- What do you feel will be the fate of Mrs. Wright and why?
Do not think of this assignment as a series of questions that must be answered. Instead, ask yourself questions simply as idea starters that will help you formulate your response.
