Synopsis

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."

Customer Reviews

"An amazing story of how we try to blame shift our responsibility on others ...rather than own it!! A conclusion of forgiveness is used at the end...LOVED it!"
Review by Joan Nietzschmann, The Calvary Players, Port Jervis, N.Y.
"Wow! Powerful, suspenseful, and full of great roles. Easy to produce but an over the top effect for cast and audience."

Review by Richard Gage, Struthers High School, Struthers, Ohio
