Dreams play an important role in creating themes throughout the novel. Choose two dreams that appeared in the play and describe what happened in each of them. Then, explain what each dream meant to the character who had them, and how the dream worked to create a theme in the play as a whole.

When Merrick was first introduced to the audience while he was working at the freak show, his speech was almost unintelligible. Throughout the course of the novel, however, that changed. Create a time line for Merrick's speech and explain how the growth of Merrick's speech affected the way the characters in the play, and the audience, related to him as a man, and how Merrick's speech mirrors his lifelong struggle to be understood.
