"Adam" :60
(Actual events. Homeowners are not actors. Open on a small group of very official, government-type people walking up to a person's home)
Man: Hi, are you Adam Sinclair?
Adam: That's me
Man: I wish I was here under better circumstances, Sir, but I am here to carry out a notice of eviction regarding this residence.
Adam: Are you kidding me?
Man: So unfortunately you have to vacate these residences today
Adam: I have kids sleeping right now…
Man: I understand. You might have to wake them up.
Adam: We have to leave the house?!
Man: Yes. You did not get any notice of this?
Adam: Nothing. No, I've got two newborn kids upstairs sleeping...
Enforcer: Right now the best thing for you to do is to listen to what is being said here.
Adam: Yeah I want a lawyer; I am going to call my lawyer.
Man: I urge you strongly to do that…
Adam: Ally you better come here. They are evicting us!
Man: You are going to have to figure out if you have some friends you can...
Adam: How long is this going to go on for?
Man: I can't tell you sir…it has to be open ended.
Super: We made Adam believe he was losing his home. Ten million refugees know what that's like.

"Henry" :60
(Actual events. Homeowners are not actors. Open on a small group of very official, government-type people walking up to a person's home)
Henry: Hello.
Man: Hi are you Henry Andrei?
Henry: Yes. Why?
Man: I have a legal notice regarding eviction for this home.
Henry: Huh?
Man: This notice for eviction is effective immediately. Did you not receive any notification in the mail?
Henry: None at all.
Man: I have an affidavit from the letter carrier saying here that he did hand deliver that said notification.
Henry: Do you have the right address?
Man: 43 (mute out street) Avenue.
Henry: Sir this is the first I am hearing about this. I am quite shocked. I have not received any notice of this. My family is downstairs; we are watching TV.
Enforcer: Sir, this is not a debate. We are just here to serve you…let you know what is happening.
Henry: But...
Enforcer: It is time for you to leave.

David (long pause) Why?
