Slide 1 - Tekstslide

What if...
...your closest friend swears you to secrecy, then admits that, in a moment of madness, he was the person who stole the data projector from your classroom. Because the teachers don’t feel that they are able to trust the students anymore, everyone is locked out of the classrooms at breaks and lunchtimes and everyone is suffering. But if your friend is found out, he will be expelled. He has a hard time at home, and you know that this would be the last straw – his parents would be likely to throw him out. What should you do?
Stay loyal to friend

What if...
...there has been a major terrorist attack. Water supplies have been affected and within hours the shops have been stripped bare of all the bottled water, as people rush to get supplies. You and your family happen to have a large quantity of bottled water left over from a party, enough to last you for up to three weeks. The crisis may well last as long as that. You discover that several families on your road have hardly any water at all. What should you do?
Say Nothing

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

What if...
you and a friend have been involved in a scam, defrauding the authorities by claiming benefits you are not entitled to. It was your idea: you thought it was foolproof and you persuaded your friend to do it too. Now she has been caught and is facing a possible prison sentence. If she goes to jail, her children will have to go into foster care. If you own up, she might just get a caution or a fine. But you also have a family, all of whom are depending on you. What should you do?

Stay Quiet
Own Up

Slide 12 - Tekstslide

Words from the author...
It was conceived in wartime and begun in wartime; the spectacle of human sacrifice in contrast with aggrandizement is a sharp and heartbreaking one. At a time when all public voices were announcing the arrival of that great day when industry and labor were one, my personal experience was daily demonstrating that beneath the slogans very little had changed. In this sense the play was a response to what I felt ‘in the air’. It was an unveiling of what I believed everybody knew and nobody publicly said. At the same time, however, I believed I was bringing news, and it was news which I half expected would be denied as truth. When, in effect, it was accepted, I was gratified, but a little surprised.
