Mrs Birling: Mrs Birling! It can't be! Are you sure? Eva Smith: Yes of course I'm sure why? Mrs Birling: Never mind. How may I help you? Eva Smith: I'm having a really hard time recently, my husband deserted me and has left me on my own and pregnant. ...read more.

Middle

Head of Committee: What so you're not technically married to Mr Birling? Eva Smith: No, I'm afraid not. Mrs Birling: So you lied? Is there anything else you're not telling us because we need to know the facts? Eva Smith: Well, seeing as you now know that my name isn't Mrs Birling.. Mrs Birling: (interrupting) why did you use that name? You had no right! Eva Smith: Yes I no I didn't and I'm awfully sorry, it was the first name that I could think of. Head of Committee: You most certainly didn't have the right of using that name. Is there anything else you're not telling us, maybe the truth about this man would be nice! Eva Smith: I wasn't deserted and I'm not married. ...read more.

Conclusion

Eva Smith: It's not my place to tell him where he stands, he should know that! He is young and immature! I will not marry him! Head of Committee: But it's his responsibility! Mrs Birling: Let me talk this through with the committee (Eva turns her chair) Head of Committee: So what do you think we should do? Mrs Birling: Without a doubt we should not allow her claim for assistance. She has lied to us more than once now and has used the name of a head of committee. A girl of her class should no better than to think that we are that stupid. I will not grant her claim! Head of Committee: I agree Mrs Birling. This is a waste of our time! (Eva turns back around) Mrs Birling: I'm sorry but your claim has been turned down. Please leave. (Eva walks out) ...read more.
