Abstract
This paper is projected to examine the degree to which the main female characters (Nina, the protagonist of
Strange Interlude and Abbie, the protagonist of Desire Under the Elms) get deteriorated in O‘Neill‘s two plays. The study
adopts Glasser‘s seven perspectives which reflect the deadly habits that ruin relationships. The paper offers an additional
understanding to O‘Neill‘s plays in lights of Glasser‘s choice theory and his conceptions of, Blaming, Complaining,
Nagging, Threatening, Punishing, and Bribing or rewarding to control as they uncover the conditions that lead to the
females‘ deterioration. Results assign that these female characters get deteriorated through the above mentioned components
of choice theory. The study infer that the two female characters are deteriorated by their loved ones and both males and
females are ruining each other‘s life by those means.

Key words: Female character, choice theory, O‘Neill, deterioration, complaining, blaming, bribing or rewarding to control, and punishing.
