Anita's response to David E. Rodriguez's, "I'm Not Stupid"

Dr. Green’s two monologues located on pages 288 & 289 provides the audience with the most information about Roger and Ma.  His role is strong because of his unique position to analyze the two parties.  Plus, he’s a psychiatrist and definitely appears to be the most responsible here.  Therefore, my decision is based on character but I also think beginning with Dr. Green’s monologues helps to establish an emotional connection with the audience.

  1. Notes from Roy:
    Yes, those are good choices. This piece could be seen as his attempt to make sense of the wild emotions of both the other characters, and the hidden intentions of the mother. So it's possible the author may have started here - giving voice to the story that Dr. Green is mystified by, so that he can wrestle with the conflicted characters.
