A tragic end

In this lesson, we will focus on the ending of the play. We will explore the extent to which Mickey and Edward can be interpreted as being tragic heroes as well as the message communicated by Russell through this. This lesson references death and the use of guns. If either of these issues are a sensitive topic to you, we recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting or doing the lesson with a trusted adult nearby.
