Her ability to cope with her husband's anxieties, his betrayal and her response to Raynell's arrival at her home and the way she tries to manipulate her son's sympathy and respect for Troy are the elements in the play that present her as the most dramatic character. She is thus a victim of double oppression. The planting display in the picture below, shows a well planted group of pink and white Iceberg roses, with a planting of miniature roses and other flowers below. Rose persuades her son to show respect for his father. Cory begs Troy to let him play because a coach from North Carolina is coming all the way to Pittsburgh to see Cory play. He blows three times into his trumpet, but no sound comes out.
