Brighton Beach Memoirs
The Great Depression
The Great Depression was the cause of a stock market crash in 1929. It was an era of unemployed college graduates and high school drop-outs alike. The people it affected ranged from high payroll to minimum wage workers. By 1933, when the Great Depression was at its worst, around 13 to 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half of the country’s banks had failed. The Great Depression lasted a whole decade; it ended in 1939.
College in the 1930's
Colleges in the 1930's were different as well as similar to colleges now.For one they were more luxurious; the staff and teachers took care of you.Unlike now, where if you don't set money aside for food and hygiene, you're screwed.Tuition back then was really small:$225 to $400.(Then again you could buy a movie ticket for three dollars.) The total amount for room and board was $520, and the total amount for books was $35. The mascot for New York University was and still is a bob cat.
Stan's Apology Letter
Dear Mr. Stroheim,
I sincerely apologize for my behavior yesterday.I know it was wrong of me, and I can only ask that you forgive me. I find that in the moment of my transgression, i was quite regretful. It was not my place to act out.
Hopefully you will look past my mistake, and see that I am an asset to your store. I am a hardworking, on task employee. I always come in on time and I often pull overtime. Except for this once, I have never made a work related mistake.
My faults are none that would hamper the fortune and well being of this store. I can only hope that you see me as a good employee to have on your payroll. I am utterly regretful, and it will not happen again. I hope you forgive me.

Personal Review of BBM
Even though I don't like realistic fiction, Brighton Beach Memoirs is an amazing play that inspires laughter at all the right times.
