Act 1 Scene 5
Anne is tentatively driving along the road with a male instructor beside her. She sees Teddy driving in the opposite direction. She waves, the car swerves and the instructor has to grab the steering wheel to steady the car. Eventually the instructor drops Anne off at her house. She lets herself in and hears Teddy angrily shouting down the phone.
I specifically stated I wanted a female instructor… As far as I know he didn’t do anything wrong, that’s not the point… You are an incompetent organisation and I’ll take my business elsewhere.
He slams down the phone and turns around and sees Anne.
What were you thinking of going out with him? After all the trouble I went to.
Teddy starts to cry. Anne rushes over to comfort him.
Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea, the driving lessons. Maybe we should just forget it.
Oh, if you think so. But …
The phone rings, Teddy speaks for a little while then hands the phone to Anne without a word.
Yes, speaking… My father… When?… I’ll come over later, bye!
She puts down the phone and turns to Teddy.
My father died this afternoon in his sleep.
Teddy nods and puts his arms around her.
I’m all you’ve got now, don’t worry, I’ll take care of you.
