One Eva Smith has gone- but there are millions of Eva Smiths and John Smiths still left with us.
Their lives, their hopes and fears, their suffering and chance of happiness, all intertwined with our lives.
We don't live alone. We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other.
The capitalist characters wear red clothing, such as Birling's burgundy suit, whilst the socialist characters either wear blue clothing, or have blue details, such as the parts of Sheila's dress. Lighting is no different from before.
And I tell you that the time will soon come when, if men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught it in fire, and blood, and anguish.
The Inspector begins to turn around, revealing he is holding a chalice and a blue handkerchief in his brest pocket, over his heart. Mr and Mrs Birling draw closer together. A dim blue spotlight is cast over the Inspector, his shadow cast over Eric and Sheila.
The Inspector is now backing up to stand alongside Eric and Sheila. His shadow is no longer cast over in them, and they too are dowsed in the blue spot light. The ambient white light grows dimmer, making the spot light more obvious. The Inspector rests a hand on Eric's shoulder. The chalice is left on the table.
You're the one I blame for this!
The ambient lighting is very low now, and the spotlight is becoming a richer and richer blue. The Inspector pulls the handkerchief from his breast pocket, and returning to centre stage, where he arrives fire, faces front at blood, and back at Mr and Mrs Birling on anguish, taking time between each one.
The Inspector hands the handkerchief to Mrs Birling, before leaving, taking long, fast strides, but not showing anger in his movement, rather elegance. After he is gone, Mrs Birling throws the handkerchief to the floor. The blue spotlight slowly fades, leaving only the weak ambient light.
The ambient light flares lighter as soon as Mr Birling begins talking, only now it is tinted red. As he turns to Eric, Sheila begins to pace slowly around the room, stopping by the handkerchief. She slowly and gently retrieves it, dries her eyes with it, and puts it away in her breast pocket, on her left side.
