Maria, Theresa, Julie and Sonia 
 
The Committee 
The Committee has been selected to choose those women whowill get to raise a child in this first trial of the new Nordicinsemination program. In the first act they will organize aselection process, including interviews and tests of theapplicants. Maria, the politician, is the ideological brain behind athree women unit being the recommended number for raising achild in this programme. One of them will be the birth motherand the other two should fulfill other important functions in theraising of the child.Some ideas for what you can do as a committee:
 
Welcoming speech by Maria early in the larp explaining theprogramme and her vision for it.
 
Psychological evaluations done by Theresa, eitherindividually, group by group or both if there is time. Theother committee members could also be there andinterfere if they disagree with Theresa on something.
 
Ask all prospective family units to make a model of thehome they will raise the child in utilizing objects they canfind in and around the building you are in.
 
Suggest changing some of the family units and switchmembers between them.What their role will be in the second act is more uncertain andwill depend a lot on what the players themselves decide on interms of their character journey.The members of the committee are a diverse group with verydifferent opinions and world views. There should be someinstances of strong disagreements within the group, but at leastfor the first act they should at least officially maintain some kindof united front towards the other women. This is not necessaryin the second act.

Suggested function for the character in the dramaturgy of the larp:
Be theleader of the whole project. Represent government. Will fight to be the one incharge, but we really do not mind if you lose this battle.
Dysfunction/ personal issue:
Is coping less well with all that has happened, allthe loss and all the sorrow, than she shows others. She has had to be a leader,someone who is composed and in charge while many times she just wants toscream. She is too strong to just break down, however. Craves finding anultimate meaning to it all.
Character Goal
: To make this project such a success it will give leverage to hercareer goal: prime minister.
Antagonist (concept or person):
People who refuse to realize they are of amore privileged group than others, and that they thus should act more humble.
