Is Hibbert purely dislikeable?


Is Trotter just a humorous character?


How does Raleigh change as the play progresses?


Is Osborne always brave and willing?



To achieve the highest marks in your exam response, you will need to offer a personal and perceptive interpretation.


This means that you need to ask questions of the characters. Think about all of the different ways we might view them - positive and negative. Think about whether they change throughout the play. Try to evaluate how far we can say they possess a particular characteristic.


In this activity, you'll need to think more about your personal response to each of the characters by exploring their characteristics more deeply.
