Ives, "Sure Thing" -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

Betty: And children?
Bill: Three of them.
Betty: Two girls and a boy.
Betty:Harvard,Vassar,and Brown.
Bill: And will you love me?
Betty: Yes.

Okay, I'm going to be honest here. WHAT THE HECK WAS THIS PLAY? Wow. I don't really know what to say about it other than it was very odd. There were some funny lines. I also thought it was interesting that the end of the play had BILL asking Betty if she'd love him forever. Isn't that a typical girl thing to say? Other than that, um, it was interesting?

whats wrong with the fact that its a humorous satire? its not DEEP but its intellectual. so its not weird. look at the various aspects that arent accepted and "rung" out. its not odd, its life.

Yessss. I have. That never occurred to me. This play is like Groundhog Day. Hm...That's interesting.

Just wondering... did you see the movie Groundhog Day?

OH...Do you mean one of the two might have amnesia? Which could be why they repeat the conversations over and over?

It was very interesting i might say. But you have to read in between the lines, or should i say the bell to really get this wacky play.

Well, what do you make of the reversal? When you compare it to Fuddy Meers, what possibilities occur to you?
