In the wake of recent "student violence", emotions are running high. Teachers at the high school are certain that something huge is about to go down. There have been all kinds of incidents: a plastic hand grenade left in the hallway, students muttering the word "bomb". So when a student walks into school carrying his science project, a suspected virulent strain of the flu, the principal has no choice but to use his stun gun. What transpires is utter mayhem: the principal institutes martial law and purchases teargas; teachers practice "team building activities"; and parents institute family fun nights, constant supervision, and smother their kids with a surplus of concern. A mixture of overprotectiveness and paranoia pervades the community and school. In the meantime, students do their best to band together despite the uplifting, healthy, wholesome, family-oriented madness! Finally, it is up to them, the students, to band together and help those kids who are in danger of becoming lost. Written with a deft, comedic hand and likeable, strongly written teenage characters, this play has inspired students, teachers and parents alike to come together and LAUGH! Written by one of our funniest authors, who has one foot on the stage and one foot in education.
