He makes the anticipation of bad news worse than the bad news itself. As Kumalo “arrives” at the point of sorrow, it is a relief because although he still feels crushed to know all that has become of his son is a murderer, he at least stands on solid ground. This is shown when he goes to visit his son before the trial and loses respect for his brother because his brother refuses to try to grieve. He knows that by refusing to do so, his brother is also refusing to heal. Kumalo knows that there is no purpose in extending the journey, because then he would just be extending the pain.

Paul is a good person I would have to say maybe a little lost and miss guided but a good person in general poetic person his deep but you have to know the intentions of his character. His father seemed like a good man trying to make a honest living for him and his family but I could see where he could be stern.

Most of the people in the theatre didn’t seem to mind Paul at all until they were told by his dad not to let him into the theater. 6.
He thought ‘kids like him’, the defendant, should be punished, because he sees his son in the 16-year-old defendant. Although he asserts, “I have no personal feelings in this case”, the audience realize this is untrue, especially in his last monologue when he shouts, “I know him”.

Simon finally admits that he had but Jack dismisses his mumbled excuses by saying ‘He was taken short’ and coincidentally Simon is left humiliated by ‘the derisive laughter that rose.’ ‘He… glanced swiftly around to confirm that he was utterly alone’. Another characteristic of Simon that makes him different from the others is that he seeks for peace, solitude and spiritual solace than companionship.

Toby is described and made out to be a typical no good teenager who around his mother, is a nice behaved boy, however when with friends or by himself alone Toby gets up to no good. “We drifted in and out of stores, palming anything”.
