Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Damn these eggs!!
  • Rising Action
  • *What will happen to the baby?*
  • Conflict
  • *$3,500 for my family's future? Totally worth it!*
  • The conversation between Walter & Ruth has revealed an important detail, that later on will become an ongoing theme. Through the presence of the insurance money and Walter's frustration, the themes of Struggle & Poverty is shown. Also by Walter's action of sweeping off the scrambled eggs, it makes the viewers feel concerned about Walter's despair.
  • Climax
  • I told you, Willy ran away with the money!!
  • As we slowly escalate up the slope ascending to the climax, we are revealed with Ruth's upcoming second child. In this moment of the plot, Ruth's decisions truly reflect on the theme of Responsibility, Family & Gender Role. And through her facial expressions, we can notice the sense of regret and hesitation. This makes us, the viewers feel a bit of sorrow, as no one can predict for the well-being of Ruth and the baby.
  • Falling Action
  • Mr. Lindner, we've decided, not to sell the house.
  • In this what is considered a conflictive moment of the plot, mama is "seen" making deals with the folks at Clybourne Park, and that she had spent $3,500 to afford a new home for her entire family. For example, in the last scenes, the themes Responsibility & Family is shown as well since she is sacrificing as the head of the family. Even though it is not a separate scene, the viewers will have mixed emotions with the events which happened back at the tenements.
  • Resolution
  • Clybourne Park
  • In this climactic moment of the storyline, we have witnessed the factor that has affected Walter negatively. With the result of Willy turning his back on Walter & Bobo, he knew he had a massive mistake & guilt. This specifically represents the themes of Dreams (Broken) & Responsibilities. In this part of the timeline, there will be a mix of empathy & frustration/anger from the audience towards Walter.
  • No he would never do that!!
  • We have come to a moment where the previous situation is being fixed by Walter. And with this bold decision and the heart of a lion, he is representing the themes of Responsibility, Family, Dreams & Racism (Conquer). As to how he had bravely shown the guts of a maturing husband, father & son, the majority of the viewers may develop a sense of pride towards Walter and his decisions.
  • We have come to a vague image of a happy ending, but it is very unpredictable. But we have witnessed an ending with the pure meaning of Family, and the most important reflection of this theme is the presence of mama's plant. In the end, the true meaning of life to the Youngers would have nothing to do with Struggle anymore, but instead Family is enough to keep them together.
