Boy Gets Girl Rebecca Gilman wrote Boy Gets Girl that is a play about our cultures views and values of women in our society today The play is a sarcastic comedy that touches a serious subject which is men and womens views The sarcastic comedy in the play is obvious One comment by Tony was Yeah who would go with a guy who drives a van Van was the operative word that was sarcastic meaning the girl could go home with anyone else Another sarcastic comment throughout the play was during an interview with a pornographic movie producer who commented I look just for big boobs and a tight ass This comment is a sarcastic and forward yet is very typical thinking of not just men but women too From birth most men in our American society are shown what beauty is and the play depicts the picture well Many women also are growing up having parallel beliefs of beauty In our society the one object that sells best and people use it to advertise with is sex Nothing sells better these days than tall beautiful skinny women on television magazines or any other advertisements We male Americans value these things in women and women even value it in themselves but there are some things women do not value This is a major part of the play and it is harassment Theresa the character who is a victim and most people empathize with is harassed horribly She receives phone calls and messages that are threatening chilling and odd However one must not overlook these calls because they happen and can turn horrible The setting takes place in a large city and my sister who is a very beautiful girl that I have worried about since she turned so gorgeous lives in Chicago The story makes me fear her safety because it can happen to anyone so maybe Rebecca Gilman has a point
