In Roger Used To Be Willy, ROSANNA gets captured from BUCK who is assigned the duty of getting her back home safely to her father.
This is a time period play taking place during the 1890’s. Rosanna and Buck ride along in a horse and carriage.
ROSANNA: You. Him. My mother…all of you! Why can’t I just have a normal life? Why can’t I go out and do the things I want to do? I’m not happy. I don’t care about my education and being kind and having morals and values…I want to act on my impulses. I want to live my own life experiences. I’m tired of being held back. There shouldn’t be anything wrong with a young woman finding her own way and deciding who she wants to be as she grows up, without having all these criticisms put on me. There’s no trust! And you’re ugly. As ugly as all hell and I want no part of you or this life. I want to be left alone, free…to be my own person and make my own decisions, go my own way…tired of asking for permission, tired of sneaking around to have a laugh with my friends and made to feel like I’m doing something wrong. I don’t want to listen, understand?
