This storyboard does not have a description.
"She and Steve had a row. Has she got the police? "
"That's much more practical!"
Stanley: "Naw. She's gettin' a drink."
The scene starts off as a typical day in the house until there is “A disturbance is heard upstairs at the Hubbells’ apartment.” Learning that the racket was caused by Eunice who was hit by Steve and yelled threatening to call the police. Stella, who does not flinch, and says “She and Steve had a row. Has she got the police?”, And Stanley updates “Naw. She’s getting’ a drink”. Stella who still does not bat in eye interjects “That’s much more practical!” We note that Stella who is in a similar position as Eunice does nothing about it, but rather jokes about Eunice bring hit. She brushes it off like it happens to her often off and it's nothing. This conveys and becomes gender commentary what Stella thinks acceptable and normal for the women in the relationship to face these “small” incidence. Alluding to the fact that the average in this time face “hardships” like these more often and it was considered “normal.” Stella small yet strong statement highlights the role of gender in society during this time.
In both events, Tennessee Williams character’s nonverbal action, insightful description, and small yet powerful statement to convey that is acceptable for a particular gender at this time. Highlighting how the character themselves are shaped in this period say they are already molded and if they weren’t they are shunned by society. With he can convey the fact that women and men at the time the time had certain roles, in which the women is under control of their husband or a male figure. This is like life because society does indeed shape a person, shaping the way they act and think.
