  • Patricia Mcnulty Character Analysis

    “I’m Patricia McNulty. I taught second grade at Hawthorn Elementary” (Parlor Games) and my husband Mort is not dead. During my senior year in high school I was actively involved in the theatre program. The final fall play I could audition for was called Parlor Games. Walking into auditions I had done little research on the show, but knew I wanted to be the lead nonetheless. After a long afternoon of auditioning and having to reread for callback, I ended up with the part of the lead. At that moment I was no longer Erika Watral; I had taken on a new persona and her name was Patricia McNulty. Patricia, or commonly known as Tricia, is a middle aged married woman with two kids and a psycho husband. Her husband, Mort, is known for his practical jokes, but happens to take one too far.

Everyone believes Mort has passed away, or so Tricia thinks. As the time passes in the funeral home it becomes evident the friends attending the funeral are catching onto the prank. In the end, Tricia turns the funeral into a surprise birthday party for Mort. The whole show was put together within a month and it was very stressful, but I am happy I was able to be a part of Parlor Games. Transforming into Tricia was my favorite moment on stage in high school. A new year at high school meant a new cast and…

I feel like this is why you see more people burning, tearing, and sadly spitting on the United Stated flag. Yes a little bit might have to do with the government because we obviously can’t know everything that’s going on. But I feel like all the US citizens see is more of the bad side of the military and few of the good stuff they do. I remember watching the news one day and it told a story…
