Hi Guys, long time no see! I've been so busy recently not really had time to check in here. I've been working on a project for a series and the pilot is almost there - I've hit a wall with one scene in particular which has a strong emotional content. In this scene the main character has to deliver the news of death of their daughter's family to parents who are waiting in a police room. The scene is central to the plot in that it starts to lay the pipes for one of the series story arcs, and also ideally i'd like it to be a strong scene that will capture the listeners interest. I've taken two stabs at the scene - the first where the reactions of the parents were almost comically bad, the second which is very dry and doesn't have any emotional impact. The problem here, of course is that I'm lucky enough to have never delivered such bad news and so don't really know believably how people would react. So my question to you guys is - how would you (or have you) approach(ed) writing a scene such as this, or one that has a strong emotional impact - and how would you research something like this? The challenge here is that, as it is a radioplay, it has to be delivered through language and performance alone - there is no narration, or visual cues.
