Reception

Mr. Kingsley is a charismatic and theatrical drama teacher at CAPA. Through Trust exercises, he forces students to bare their innermost thoughts in front of each other. He often takes special interest in his students based on what they reveal about themselves during these sessions, and he makes a habit of inviting certain students to enjoy lunch with him in his private office. He shows himself to be kind, caring, and supportive to his students, but also to be manipulative and overly forward with them. Sarahs mother ultimately filed a complaint against him because of his overreach. In Sarahs narrative, were told that he lives with his husband. Through Claires narrative, however, we are encouraged to consider that Sarah may have a considerably obscure character in particular.
