Scene 2: Circle Of Blame
Detritus litters the stage. Order must be restored. Trials / hearings.
Those responsible are present around the outskirts of the stage, maybe some sort of a circle: Lay, Fastow, Ramsay and Hewitt, Arthur Andersen, the Board. But not Skilling.
A light moves from player to player as they speak.
Hewitt If illegal practises went on –
Hewitt That's entirely another matter –
Hewitt We explicitly –
Ramsay / Hewitt – avoided the illegal. We are not accountants.
Arthur Andersen wrestles his dummy into acquiescence.
Skilling enters the hearing.
Gavel bang three times.
