The first impression we get from the play of over the wall portrays a fairy tale. We know this because of the first line which says “There was once an island.” This beginning is a stereotypical first line for a fairy tale. Though at first, this is the impression we are given, as the story soon develops it becomes more serious and shows the many different types of people in the world. He shows this in a scenario where eight different people with different beliefs and personalities are on an island. On the island is wall and the different characters are contemplating going over the wall itself. They play examines how different types of people have varied views over a subject that does not mean a lot.
The great thing about the play is that it doesn’t have a specific message to deliver to its audience, as many people interpret it differently, but to an eventual result, the concept remains the same.
