She tells of how an old Sheriff tells of going out to buy McDonald’s hamburgers back in the day because all of the food had to be brought in. Now, the jail has the food prepared on sight, but the imagery is there. Another point of interest is the old locks, still visible behind a white panel. The panel opens and levers can be seen which used to be used to lock the entire jail in one instant. “It was pretty secure, a couple jailbreaks, but overall it was good.” Mrs. Teague remarks.

  • Major Life Differences

    In “The Real World,” James Farrell says, “…‘the real world’ is basically the commercial world, the world of American business.

  • What Is The Theme Of The Play In William Shakespeare´s Romeo And Juliet?

    In order to get the feel of Russia, Ms. Teague hung a giant poster of Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, over one of the balconies. The poster was meant to symbolize Russia and the fact that Putin is allowing the violent vigilantism against homosexuals in his country. Besides the poster, the set consisted of a stationary wagon and a few black boxes. The location of the play made no sense to me. If Ms. Teague had wanted to make it obvious to the audience that the play was set in Russia,…
