Sure Thing

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

Bill: Oh Faulkner.
Betty: Have you read it?
Bill: I'm a Mets fan myself.

It is interesting to note that the young couple, or newly met pair, is discussing The Sound and the Fury a novel about time and death, and how we make us of life. Clearly, the cyclical nature of relationships and meetings is shown as the audience gets to re-meet the pair in this play. Each opportunity the audience gets to meet the pair is an opportunity as to whether or not the pair could become a sure thing. It is interesting, also, to note that relationships and meetings can sometimes purely be chance, and it's all in the way it's played.

PS - I think I met this man, only he might have been a Cubs fan.
