Storyboard Text

  • Well, you can hear me and I said to hush up!
  • You hens cut out that conversation in there!
  • You can't hear us.
  • Stop it. Let go of that broom. I won't have you cleaning up for him!
  • Stella is one of the main characters in this play. She is stuck in an abusive relationship, and since this play takes place in the 1950's women didn't have many rights. She had nowhere to go and no way of escaping.
  • I? I!
  • No, I didn't think so.
  • Then who's going to do it? Are you?
  • Stanley and his friends are playing poker together and they have all been drinking.
  • Stanley treats Stella with a lot of disrespect. Stanley was drunk in this scene which causes him to show his true abusive self. Stella was trying to stand up for herself but she is viewed as powerless because she is a female. Men thought that whatever they said was going to happen without exceptions because they had all the power.
  • Stella is cleaning after Stanley's poker hangout in a later scene and Blanche is trying to stop her.
  • Blanche is trying to talk some sense into Stella. Stella has to put up with Stanley being drunk and abusive constantly and on top of that she gets pushed around like she's his slave. After Stanley got drunk with his friends and hit Stella (while she's pregnant) she has to clean up after him. This is a stereotypical way of viewing women roles in the 1950's. Women were viewed as house wife's that couldn't do anything aside from clean up the house or the mess that the men would make.
  • The lack of women's rights led Stella to be stuck in an abusive relationship with an alcoholic. This has been an issue that has affected society for centuries. Women are often looked down upon because they are female. This causes their potential to be degraded. Stella is shown to have a strong personality, but she is unable to use it because Stanley is holding her down from reaching her full potential
