Sample of script:
Don is sitting onstage at desk, reading some papers
after a few seconds Sue cautiously comes onstage, approaches Don
Sue: Excuse me, I was to speak with someone from HR. . . .
Don, stands, extends hand:
Please come on in, have a chair. . . . I am Don, the Human Resources manager.
Sue: I’m Sue. I understand you’re recruiting workers in your Junior Clients Department.
Don: Yes, we are. We have a wonderful opportunity for a dedicated individual, preferably one with experience in the area of positive growth development.
Sue: Well I do have my degree in marketing. And I have good secretarial skills, can type 175 words per minute and have experience in Word, Excel and web design.
Don: Well those skills could possibly come in handy along the way. But can you handle it when a first time client cries and wants to go home?
Sue, shock: Your clients cry?
Don: Well, you have to realize, sometimes it’s separation anxiety when their mom drops them off with strange people.
Sue: You . . . have . . . strange .. . . people working here?
Don: Well, when it’s the first time the clients have been out things may seem strange until they get acclimatized. But moving on, how are you at telling stories?
Sue: You tell stories to your clients?
Don: Yes, and we sing songs, play games, depends on what our clients enjoy.
And, of course, we have to ensure that our clients have quiet time and a nap.
Sue: You have places for your clients to sleep?
Don: Oh yes, each client has his or her own little bed.
And we need to be sure we look after things when our client has an accident.
Sue: Don’t your clients look after their own accidents?
Don: Realize some of our clients are really just like brand new.
Sue: Exactly what kind of accidents are we talking about here?
Don: We get the whole range! . . . Could be a simple matter of the client spitting up.
