I found the play fascinating as the story developes I found that the playright slowly strips down
the facade of the doctor to a man who is not just shallow but he is a man pretending to have
be an upstanding member of the community but can't raise a finger to help this
woman desperately in need of help, he just wants her to go away. He completely turns his back
on her. Admittedly she's a charmless character but it takes the character of Stevie who has
so little himself to help her. The character of Margaret has no illusions about life but Mike has
tucked his past away and deceived himself into imagining his upbringing and schooling as giving
him an "edge" a "Southie" which makes him
interesting to other people in his professional life but to those like Margaret who went to school
with him, knew the truth that his past was anything but edgy, that he was in fact not a particularly
likeable character then so its no surprise to Margaret to find that he's not particularly likeable now
and she sets out subconsciously to show him who he really is.
Incredible dialogue. So well written. This is a classic play which goes to heart of modern day humanity
and what it means to be courageous and help those in need like Margaret (how hard would it
have been for Mike to have lifted a finger to try and find her a job?) and turning away from those
in society who need a lucky break.
