Bring out the theme of the play, 'Mother's Day.
Mrs. Pearson is taken for granted by her family: her husband, son and daughter are unappreciative of the amount of hard work that she puts into the running of the household. She accepts it without complaint because of her gentle nature and her love for her family. Mrs. Fitzgerald, her strong willed neighbour, conjures a spell by which they interchange their personalities. Channelling herself through Mrs. Pearson, she manipulates the family dynamic so as to get her friend the respect that she deserves. She also helps establish the principal theme of the play-about the unsung roles that women play in the family.
