OCCUPY ERIC

Tilly Lunken

Adams – (17) is convinced his brains entitle him with the right to lord over everyone. He doesn’t need teaching, hell he’s a teacher.

Grahams – (17) but less sure of his place in the world, he is ready to follow the lead of whoever is taking the class.

Morrison – (17) and doesn’t need teachers as he knows everything there ever needs to be known. Who needs to go to school when you will one day own it?

Eric – (37) is a teacher of much experience, much ingenuity and much patience.

 

A one-man blue tent is pitched on the edge of a small town Occupy camp. The zip has been padlocked shut from the outside. In front a pair of dirty Birkenstocks and a pile of clothes; to the side an upturned milk crate topped with a newspaper and a steaming mug of tea. Other crates are scattered and there is a sign proclaiming ‘Occupy School.’

The tent moves; someone is trapped inside it.

Adams and Grahams, both in school uniform enter, Grahams kicks the school sign over. The tent stops moving.
