- The piece being performed:
The most fucked up kids are the kids of psychologists.
- Why do they know or like this piece? Where/who did they learn it from? What does it mean to them?
“My father is a psychiatrist and I have met many people that have parents that are therapists or psychologists and we share in the mutual bond, the shared experience of being raised by someone who consistently tries to ‘shrink’ us.”
- The context of the performance.
Madison’s bedroom, right after speaking with her mother.
- My thoughts about the piece.
It is a telling proverb, because it highlights the emotional distance between Madison and her father, especially as she grows older and tries to be a daughter, not a patient. It also might be indicative of growing up Jewish, as Madi feels she has heard the saying from many others of the same religion.
