Dun Ning Intro to Acting 12/6/05 Snakebit Goal: In the beginning of the story, the goals of the main characters were unclear due to the fact that they did not seem too motivated towards their true goal. There was Michael, who was very depressed from his break up with his gay boyfriend, Gary who left him for a younger man. His goal was to find another true love and to adopt a child. Jennifer, the only girl throughout the entire play, wanted her husband, John, to love her better. She wanted the life of an actor, but she worries way too much, and is always worried about her daughter. There was John, whose goal was to want everybody’s appreciation at first; he later went to Hollywood, but that did not make him happy. These were the goals of the characters in the beginning; however, their goals changed from something more dramatic later in the play. It all came together for them, and later in the play, they all shared the same goals. It was learned from medical testing later in the play that Jennifer’s six-year old daughter may not be John’s (who she is now married to). This is so, because of the fact that Jennifer has had multiple partners in the past, before she was married to John. She has had sex with Michael’s best friend, John as well; and things really start to mess up. That is why, ultimately the goals of Michael was to keep his friendship with John. Jennifer changed later to: “trying to hide their secret past from John, so that she can keep their marriage and to protect her daughter.” While John’s goal became: “trying to find out what they were hiding from them, to keep his marriage, and to keep his friendship with Michael.” So in the beginning of the play, everyone’s goal was ultimately focused on themselves, while later in the play, this selfishness had caused so much problem that everyone had learned a lesson from this.
