Compound Education

Scenes from a play in progress

 

ACT 1, SCENE 4

Bahrain (1996), St Christopher’s British School playground. Nora (14), a slight and frightened Brit stands facing Jen (14), a flame-haired, big-boned Australian. The air is heavy with dust and moisture as it nears mid-day. Picnic tables, alcoves and distant Portakabins interrupt the expanse. Curiously, an archaeological dig clutters one corner. Jen has been ordered by the formidable Ms Cray to show Nora around her new school.
