On Thursday evening, February 9, 2017, my mother drove me to Georgia State Perimeter College Clarkston Campus which is located in Clarkston, Georgia for my second mandatory encounter for HUMN 1000. Due to the fact that I was going at night, it was quite a boring drive to Georgia State University Clarkston Campus (GSUPC); however, on the way to GSUPC, I had the anxious feeling of not knowing what to expect from the play I was going to watch, SHE.

However, in the play, the doctors are coming to not only bring destruction to the utopia but also to take whatever they please by force. The doctors also represent something more realistic in the play, the evil of knowledge.

This conclusion is reached by the fact that the color of the doctors’ apparel was green.
