BDS and the Faceless Ghost
by Peter Griffith
Two young detectives and their dog investigate the mysterious death of Miss Blightwell's pets. But only Snuffles the dog is clever enough to understand the danger coming from the leaking yellow-and-black barrels in the neighbours' yard. In the end, with the help of the village policeman, the terrible truth emerges: Miss Blightwell is living next to a storage dump for used nuclear fuel! Fortunately, the Minister for the Environment is able to promise that all will be well.
Through the irony of the play's ending, the audience is encouraged to consider the environmental problems caused by the nuclear power industry and the world's high demand for energy. The accompanying Teachers' Pack contains contributions from Greenpeace as well as material from the nuclear industry.
