Preventative Detention
AuthorHAILS, Christopher - Other Plays by this Author - Contact Author
SynopsisA new initiative by the headmaster of a comprehensive school leaves Debbie Charlton with the unenviable task of supervising detention with a difference. As school resources are stretched, this is the last thing Debbie wants. Six pupils have volunteered to be guinea pigs in a series of half-hour role playing exercises. All are apprehensive, especially the cynical and arrogant Jason Walker who starts off on the wrong foot. As the session progresses a marked change in the pupils attitude is noticed as they realise that the make believe situations can actually happen in real life. When the session finishes, a real life tragedy confronts Jason, and Debbie is left to come up with the answers
