I researched (a lot) about domestic abuse, about the causes and effects of it, about what solutions have been done and which have and have not worked. I experienced quite a bit of empathy for those who are abused. I narrowed down my topic to just wives being abused by their husbands. We'll see if that stays the same. I watched a couple documentaries for more information on different stylistic approaches to plays. I wrote chapter one and two.
