By Reginald Rose.
Cast: 13m., 13w. (extras.) There is no scenery. Except for a few chairs, there are no props. Latecomers in the audience are invited to come up and sit on the stage, which they do. Their smiles broaden when the students start what appears to be a mock trial. A few months ago, a student fell to his death from the school fire escape... or perhaps he was pushed. The purpose of the mock trial is to fix responsibility. Now the proceedings no longer seem enjoyable. One revelation forces the next, and soon the entire community finds itself involved. This play is a demonstration of what John Donne wrote: "Each man's death diminishes me." Bare stage w/props.
