So far everyone seems to be blogging about Evelyn's problems. I would like to talk about Faith's relationship with her mother at the beginning of the play.

EVELYN. I want you to make a mature and reliable decision. An adult decision. This continual vacillationis not helpful to either of us.

Without knowing Evelyn's background one might think that she is trying to help her daughter mature. However, after reading the entire play, Evelyn may be trying to help her daughter mature in the only way that she knows how. Evelyn was forced to grow up faster than she wanted to and is trying to have her daughter grow up in the same way.

Faith is just looking for someone to tell her what to do. She doesn't wan to grow up yet, she is looing for stability and someone substantial to give her an identity.
