One of the intriguing elements of this play is that there is no clear definition of right or wrong outlined in the text. Review the play and state where you see direct evidence of facts. What do we know for certain in the play? How would a judge rule in this case? Which characters do you side with? Did any of the characters behave in a "just" manner? Support your answer. The only evidence that is stated in the play is the observations of the nuns. Sister James believes “it’s just the way the boy acted when he came back to class” (Stanley 23). The reader also hears the observation of Sister Aloysius who states to Father Flynn, “On the first day of the school year, I saw you touch William London’s wrist. And I saw him pull away” (Stanley 52). These are the only statements made to create suspicions toward Father Flynn.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
