A new Aura
Majorie was very vain throughout the play. To me she always seemed to do anything she could to make herself look better than Bernice.
I personally enjoyed the end of the play, because it showed a feeling of self confidence in Bernice. When she "scalped" Majorie it sort of reminded me of the Brady Bunch movie, you know how Marsha was always primping and conplimenting herself. Jan finally had it and hacked off Marsha's hair while she slept.

I chuckled when Bernice did the same thing because it was her time for "Sweet Revenge", so they call it.
I never connected that Brady Bunch episode to this story. Of course, but hair-cutting has a long tradition, going back to Samson and Dalilah in the Bible, and even farther.
Sara, I too could relate Marjorie and Bernice to the Brady Bunch Family. At one point, didn't Marsha's sisters want to cut her hair off in order to make her more like them and not so pretty? I think there was one episode that I watched that was like that. You said it was in the movie, was it? I also related the story we read in class to Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. It reminded me of this and come to think of it, the book reminded me of The Brady Bunch as well! :)
I also related Marjorie and Bernice's hair incident to that of The Brady Bunch and Marsha. She did have the prettiest hair and it was hillarious when Jan cut it off! :) I also related this story to Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. Maybe you should check that book out. You may like it!
