Hello! Follow this link to the text of The Stolen Party.
Good show. I hope you enjoyed the story. One of the central themes is social roles and knowing one’s place in society. What does this story reveal about social conventions? Stew on these thoughts for a moment before you tackle one of the two questions below:

2. Pick two characters to juxtapose and interpret what this reveals about the theme of “knowing one’s place in society”.
