The play “The Typists” is a play about a time in WW2 how these women’s who write letters to families whose sons have passed away when serving in the military and do not realize how things could be hard for them to know what would it be like if they were in their shoes and dreams. This was also the first theatrical play I have attended and to my surprise it was a great experience, so it also gave me an affective memory to what I was dealing with in my life. Though the production was excellent there were things that I enjoyed, and only some that I disliked as well. Hopefully this will help clarify my likings and disliking of the production The Typists. Starting with my dislike of the production, it came to my attention that some parts of the play where Sofi, the new girl who was always getting blamed whenever her boss did not like how she would type her letters in Spanish. In my opinion, the boss should not have gotten after for that reason since there are some families who do not always read everything in English. She initially thought if they have a Spanish last name she was being consider it on typing theirs in Spanish rather them suffer in trying to find out what was said in English. Another thing that I didn’t find interesting was when the all the girls in the office had a night out talking about their guys who were serving when they had a job to fulfill instead of Sofi. I had saw how much Sofi was working hard on her letters trying to impress her

I will be honest with you I had a lot of trouble enjoying the play, like I said the dialect gave me trouble, plus my seats were not that great. I did however like the movie quite a bit, but I realize I am a product of a different generation as well. I have been brought up around TV and movies rather than plays
Sadly when I arrived at the theater I was not even sure I would be able to focus on the show, for my mother who was meant to see this production with me yet was unable to. Due to unforeseeable circumstances that neither one of us could for see and so with all of this hanging over head I was really hoping to get a laugh from this play, which it did. This was not the first time that I had come to see a play at Boise Little Theater, but definitely this was the first time that I had done it on my own. Which was a tad
This was the first play or theatre performance that I have attended. I was unsure of what to expect, but I heard great things about this play. Furthermore, the first aspect of this production that caught my attention was the design of the set. The design gave the feeling of a run down urban neighborhood by making the outer parts of the stage look like an old brick building. The building looked like one you would find in a low-income area or projects. The scenery of the play set the stage for what type of production this would be. I especially liked the way they carefully chose not to place just any kind of props on the stage. The dusty
Subject 12-M sounds much more like a science fiction character than a refugee fleeing Communist Hungary, but do not let that fool you into thinking his recollection of Hungary is fantasy. This individual has displayed a great disdain towards Communism, especially between the years of 1944 and 1945. Just a juvenile during these years, Subject 12-M found himself within the Soviet Union’s sprawling territory following the conclusion of World War II. With the annexation of Hungary into the Soviet Union came the arrival of the Russian soldiers into the country. On their way through Hungary, establishing Leninist Communism, the soldiers spared no sympathy in raping, looting, and plundering just about everything they could get their hands on.
Most families are complicated but supportive. For example, a family could argue a lot, but still love one another. In Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use” mama still supports her daughters even though, they’re not around much. Their issues are not unique because my family has its issues, too. The family in “Everyday Use” and my family both have similarities and differences regarding siblings, bonds, and mothers.
Dee, at the beginning of story Everyday Use, seems to despise her African American up-bringing and culture. Her mother explicitly tells us Dee seems to be happy when their home, that has family heirlooms stored inside burns to the ground. “She was standing by the old tree, smiling.” Earning favorable marks in school, seemingly living an opposite lifestyle, Dee’s intelligence shines; the only aspect which makes her unappealing, the attitude she has toward her family. After graduating high school and leaving for college, Dee’s mother and sister doesn't hear from her. One day, they see a surprise in the driveway.
The mother’s character in this play stand out. Just like any mother out there, they have been through all hardship and therefore they always want their children to learn and know what is right and wrong. The costumes are funny and beautiful. For example, when the daughter who study a lot became a doctor, her looks and costumes looked perfect on her. She looked like a doctor. I loved how HAS’s play goes back to the Hmong village in Laos. It also showed how generations after generations has improved such as ladies being able to continue school. The acting was amazing! I loved the part when the mother yelled for her husband, “Where are you?”, and he popped out and walked to her and said, “I was still pooping!”. That was a great laugh.
In the short story, Everyday Use, written by Alice Walker, characters are compared and contrasted depending on their values and morals. For example, Mama and Maggie are very traditional and see beyond materialistic things and look more into the value it has with the soul and emotion. However, Maggie’s sister, Dee, is seen as superficial and believes the only way to live is to have the better things in life. This short story really shows the differences in families and the type of things they appreciate. Maggie is the most appreciative character in the story and most deserving of the quilts that are being handed down by their grandmother.
What really kept me interested was the story line and the actors as well. It had a very interesting stories and with that actors it made it even more interesting. What stood out to me and always grabbed my attention was their expressions and passion towards their roles. The actor that stood out more to me was Divine. She really had to know how to change her expressions and acting ways throughout the play. For instance, when she seen her mother Lena her expressions had to change quickly. Also, for the school play her mood had to change as well because she was acting as a tree in her school play. The moment, that really stood out to me was when Devine was scared because Tray did not go pick her up. In my opinion, during that scene a million of flashbacks must have passed through her head when her mom left her. Also, the her facial expression really made the audience get an idea of how or what she was feeling. “That woman ain’t your mama”, is a short sentence that really stood out to me and described a big part of the play. This is due, because Lena left her daughter behind a dumpster. Which is why Devine has trusting issues and really doesn’t know who her mother actually is and that is what Lena is trying to accomplish through the play to earn the family's trust and to finally talk to her daughter Devine. Overall, in my judgment the play is just outstanding and I would highly recommend
