The Net

The Net is a play which has tons of back story plushed in with a simple tone of dialogue. We get basically a psycholigical profile of Alfonso just from the little things he says. The relationship with him and the "flatfoot" trying to save him has an offset feeling. The feelings of Alfonso's past give a dynamic sense oof why he is now attempting suicide. His passion for dancing and injury drive him to end his life. The two strangers start creating a friendship through their situation. Alfonso is annoyed with Stuart but in the end falls to help him. "Stuart catches the hat and Alfonso falls"

  1. good analysis i would be interested to hear your opinions on the techniques

  2. Seems sound enough. Do you think, therefore, that Alfonso's fall was necessary to help Stuart symbolically? Do you think that Alfonso's decision was a kind of self-sacrifice, or defeat snatched from the jaws of victory?
