Major Theme The study theme/lesson of the play is to of all time put somebody else before you.If you do than you will learn more about yourself in long run. environs The environment of our scene is a bar and grill on 121st pass at 2 a. m. in the morning. Sitting in the bar I rear end see the smoke from the kitchen as it passes the lights on the ceiling. I can smell the fantastic aroma of fried food being cooked out back. I can taste the cold, salty, and seasoned French fries as I bite into them off of Marcias plate. I can call for the faint jazz music from the jukebox in the corner behind me. I can feel the cool air conditioning advent from the vents as I stand under them when I get warm. CharacterMy character is Edwin Velasquez. Edwin is a super for a building on 121st thoroughfare and has a great relationship with some of his tenants. Edwin dresses incredibly mainstream and boring. He hasnt shaved in 3 months, so his scruff is quite evident and doesnt waste time doing his hair. Edwin loves to eat Yodels with whole milk, and smoke. Edwins not the smartest 32 year old and he had to re-do 2nd grade 3 times. He is a very happy person who has taken on a huge burden that causes him to be on edge roughly all of the time. Some peop le may see this as a bad attitude, but its simply a result of always worrying.Edwin has to take care of his little Brother, Pinky, by himself due to the fact that their parents are dead. Pinky is mentally challenged, and it just so happens that its Edwins crack which really weighs down on his shoulders 24/7. He threw a brick through a window after being allow out at by his parents for calling Pinky a retard, and the brick hit Pinky on the head causing permanent damage. Edwins most all-important(a) relationship is the one with his brother Pinky. Their parents passed away several years ago. social Services insisted on taking Pinky into custody, but Edwin would not let that happen, so he took full responsibility for Pinky.He feels that he owes it to his parents to be the best possible parental figure he can be for Pinky. Edwins overall need or desire throughout his carriage is to be certain Pinky is happy and safe at all times. Edwin does extremely well trying to protect Pinky an d know hardly where he is at all times, but Pinky makes it incredibly hard to do so. In our scene he does not achieve it because Pinky was out for over 12 hours and did not tell Edwin where he was going to be which worried Edwin to death, but it was truly out of his hands.
