Dr Whomework

Written: Scott Wegener and the Edinburgh College drama class
Performance: Edinburgh College Arts Evening - November 10, 2015 




Scene I: Staff Meeting
A large ‘box’ (Tardis) sits to the side of stage, covered by a large ‘sheet’.
3 teachers (plus extras) are sitting around a table with papers, cups of tea and biscuits.

MR OEMKE: Managed to give out any infringements this morning, Miss Judd?

MISS JUDD:  (excited) YES, Mr Oemke, two actually! One, to someone talking in class, that was a easy, but I had to be more creative for the second – I ended up picking one of the students who had handed in ALL their homework and accused them of cheating.

MR OEMKE: Hmm, it’s in your contract to give out 3 infringements a day, so make sure you find another one before home time, please.

MISS JUDD: No problem. I’ll just tell a joke and whoever doesn’t laugh with enthusiasm I’ll ping for showing descent. That’s what I usually do if I’m falling short of my quota.

MISS FOX: [reading paper] Hey everyone, looks like the government is thinking of reintroducing the cane for discipline! [teachers hi five!] That would be awesome! I NEVER thought I’d get the chance to use the cane. Sweet!

Dr Coulsen walks in, everyone goes silent instantly and sits up.

Compassionisation

Brief: A 5-minute drama on the topic of Compassion.
Written: Scott Wegener and the Edinburgh College drama class (a variation of Compassion Flakes)


Performance: Edinburgh College Arts Evening - November 10, 2015 
Compassion = sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others


~Narrator: Once upon a time there was a boy who, no matter what bad things happened to people around him, wouldn't show any compassion... to anyone. In fact, he was the opposite of compassion!
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Someone could fall over.

Jessie: [falls over]

~Narrator: He wouldn't help, he would ...laugh.

Cameron:  (Laughs)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
~Narrator: He could find out a friend’s pet had died

Jessie: My cat, Fluffy, got hit by a car yesterday.

~Narrator: He wouldn't speak kindly, he would... Make fun.

Cameron:  Doesn't surprise me - Fluffy as the dumbest cat I know. Dumbest name for a cat with no hair too

Jessie: She had cancer

Cameron:  What are you sooking about then, it was going to die anyway!
