"Role playing is an excellent tool to highlight the hidden influences... or... the hidden commandments of the family...."  Robert Hawley, Value Exploration Through Role Playing, 1975.
Theater and role-playing are powerful tools for social change. The explicit purpose for bringing these processes into schools was exposed by Fannie and George Shaftel in their 1967 manual for change: Role-Playing for Social Values:
"Once values are out in the open, they can be looked at, considered compared with alternative values. Only then can one criticize, evaluate, deny or confirm and reconstruct one's value system. Children can be helped to... develop an explicit set of values. In group discussions, in role-playing enactments... they can explore their values and learn the process of criticizing and reconstructing them... under skilled guidance.
Teen violence, family breakdown, rejection of truth and mockery of parents are just a few of the devastating consequences of today's psycho-social manipulation.

....they can explore their values and learn the process of criticizing and reconstructing them... under skilled guidance.
We know what "under skilled guidance" means, don't we?
