How does Russell present the ways that Mickey and Edward are affected by their different experiences of family life?

 

Work through each of the activities to gather your ideas before beginning. Use the documents below to help you with key quotations and to organise your ideas. I have also attached a Knowledge Organiser that might help you recap the play so far.
