Winner! 1986 Scholastic Writing Award for a dramatic script, produced at New York's American Place Theatre
A typical day in the lives of eight teenagers, with the usual concerns and worries. School, football games, parties, fear of being unpopular, fear of being different, the constant temptation to experiment, either with drugs, alcohol, or sex. Molly Gettys Bass has taken all these and fashioned them into a one-act play of rare imagination and insight, and above all, good-natured humor. The Teen Age will speak clearly to all those students who look at the turmoil about them and wonder, "But is it me?" An important play, a well- crafted play, but most of all, a light-hearted play that speaks from and to the heart.
