In the exposition we ae introduced to Mrs. Stevenson, operator ,man ,man 2, and George. Mrs. Stevenson is a shellfish person. She lives in New York. Mrs. Stevenson is in her bedroom at night trying to reach her husband at his office but gets a surprise. When she tries to get her husband on the phone lines get crossed and she hears about a murder.
the 3 main events of the rising action are... 1 Mrs.Stevenson hears about the murder.2 Mrs. Stevenson's phone keeps ringing but no on is on the other line. 3 Mrs. Stevenson hears a clicking noise downstairs.
" sorry wrong number"
The climax is when the murder happens. This is the climax because this is the most exciting part of the play. This happens when the train goes by and after she tells the operator to call the police.
The falling action is when the stage directions state " lifeless hand". This is the falling action because we can be a little "relived" in this part. Another detail is that George picks up the phone breathing heavy.
The resolution is when George picks up the phone. We know this because this is how the story ends. when George picks up the phone the police department is on the other line and he ends up saying " sorry wrong number" and hangs up.
