The Play Bad Man is a puzzling play. There are several reasons why this play is so puzzling. For starters that you have a character named Thea, who is feared by the entire Sawmill Camp and has been a major part of physical conflict. He is also a murder who later becomes a hero. The unique conception of forming a villain into a hero was phenomenal. Even though Thea had a lifetime of devilish acts, for the final day of his life his performance was sanctified.
The lesson taught in this play is that there is good in all of us. You just have to find the key to release it.
The Deacons Awakening is a movement reflective play. It reflects the effects that the movement brought on families. In this play the amendment was passed for women to vote.

We have to understand as people that we have came a long way as far as our social standings are concerned. Never forget that women have come even farther than men.
In the Amen Corner Margaret is considered the main character. She is dealing with many different dilemmas. Even though she is a pastor of a church, she is still not living right.

With her life not in order it is hard for her to preach to her congregation and tell them how to live. It was not until she got herself together, when things changed for the better.
