This article provides information on a program that makes ethical education both interesting and effective, conceived and implemented by Doctor George Dupuy, Fuller E. Callaway Professor of Management at LaGrange College. The program consists of two major components: the performance of a condensed version of Friedrich Durrenmatt's play, The Visit," by a cast of 10 to an audience of 20 to 25 participants; following the performance, an extended discussion of the play's ethical issues by the actors and the participants. The play is a powerful and entertaining tragicomedy that revolves around a moral dilemma. The educational purpose of the play is not to teach ethical principles, but rather for each participant to explore his/her own values and ethics in relation to others.
