The 7 Stages of Grieving: Scene 10: 1788 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
The date 1788 is projected onto the stage. The Woman comes out on stage and calls out to “you with that hat,” telling the unseen individual that they are taking up the whole harbor and must leave.
This brief (and slightly comic) scene demonstrates the Woman’s wish that she could travel back in time and stop white settlers from ever arriving in her ancestors’ homeland. It is a small but potent act of resistance.
