the theme of "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street", a teleplay by Rod Serling, is to not be quick to blame other because you can be jumping to the wrong conclusion based on fear or unreliable sources. On page 15, it says that the neighbors blamed Charlie so then Charlie decided to blame Tommy so that Charlie would be innocent. This shows that one after another, the blaming couldn't stop because they all ended up being blamed at some point in the story. In conclusion, think before you say because you want your answer to be right and accurate than not accurate at all.
This pictures shows that something unusual happened one day on Maple street and then a big ruckus began after that.
The conflict of the story would be that everyones power went out and other thing, and people started getting suspicious on what happened throughout the story.
In the story, the characters were worried on what they saw down on the street that was moving and making noise.
The climax in the story is that everybody sees something walking down the street towards them and they all get worried and scared beacuse they think its a monster/alien just like the little boy was tell the neighbors before. They worried so much that they just decided to shoot the mystery thing waking down the street.
The falling action is when they figure out that it was Pete van Horn walking down the street from when he came back from checking the power. So they had killed Pete but also, each and everyone of them had been blamed because at some point, there power would start working.
At the end of the story, they all realize that they are all the monsters and that there is no alien or monster except themselves.
