A Talk in the Living-Room
Setting: The Richardson’s house.
Situation: A group of students gather at Richardson’s on their vacations. They used to be classmates once. Now they are all students of different colleges and universities. In the evening they are sitting in the living-room near the fireplace and speak about their college life, sharing experiences.
Card I—II — Sarah and Terry Richardson. They have invited everyone to their house. They are a sister and brother and go to a technical college. Sarah hates it and Terry loves it.
Card III—IV — Dora and Laura. Two medical school students. They have just had their professional experience in a hospital and compare studies and real life.
Card V— Harry, a student of the chemical faculty at the university. He failed to pass his exams in spring and is going to take them in autumn.
Card VI — Barbara, a student of the French department of the faculty of foreign languages at a university. She has won a personal grant for success in studies.
Card VII—VIII — Barry and Jerry, two friends who do economics at the university. Both are enthusiastic learners and like to speak about their future speciality.
Card IX — Flora, a student of an art school. She likes her drawing classes but does not like any of her other subjects.
Card X—XI — Clarry and Nora, students of a music school. In school years they used to be friends because they played in a school orchestra. They are thinking of creating a pop-group of their own.
