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 sits


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.
