1959 Pink Thunderbird is a realistic comedy focusing on working-class characters haunted by prior decisions.

ROY: But you see, when you're trying to come back to a place in your mind you want it to be how you remember it. Not how it is. This place is still the same cause the stars never change.

While obstacles that arise in the play seem daunting, there is a sense that the characters will work out their problems.

ROY: A lotta things change. But things are gonna stay the same around here.

The traverse arrangement parallels the plays retrospection. The audience cannot help but see the other side of the house and observe how they react. This serves the play by adding to the comedic element of the show. Watching the other half of the audience react add a snowballing effect to the laughter.
