Young men and wild oats

Young men and wild oats

This play depicts a common situation from the early years of the 20th century - young women from the middle classes would not be sexually active before marriage. This has nothing to do with virtue - but much to do with securing a good match. But poorer women could sometimes be seduced in return for material rewards (that would not be so attractive to those with wealth of their own).


Young men and wild oats1

Young men and wild oats

  • How does Gerald's relationship with Eva reflect the moral attitudes of his class at this time?

  • Do you think that it is right for Gerald to begin his affair with Eva, when he has no real commitment to her, and would not consider marrying her?

  • Why can Gerald not marry Eva, and why is he quite ready to marry Sheila Birling, when it is obvious that he does not really love her?

  • What do we learn from the various references in the play to the Palace Theatre, “women of the town” and the woman who wanted Eva to go to the Theatre bar?

Character profile gerald croft

Character Profile - Gerald Croft

  • Outlook on life very similar to Arthur Birling, they agree on issues.

  • Tries at first to conceal his involvement with Eva Smith/Daisy Renton.

  • Shows genuine remorse when involvement is clear, unlike Sybil and Arthur.

  • Possibly most complex character in family as he bridges the old/young divide.

  • Uses the situation at the end of the play to find a way out. Does he learn anything?
