Week 2 -#2: A main theme that is developing throughout the play is manipulation. This image represents manipulation, because the man is playing around with the person as if she/he is a toy. When people choose to manipulate others, their dignity is taken away from them, because they are being used like a toy. In this play specifically, manipulation used so that woman can get what they want, but those are rights that shouldn't be taken away. Everyone should have equal rights.
