An evening of twenty-five short scenes and monologues commissioned by the Tony Award winning American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.)
In San Francisco, this play has won critical acclaim for its entertaining yet
relevant and realistic portrayal of life at a High School.

The many diverse scenes collectively make up the play. Although each scene
stands on its own, there is a common thread - all of the vignettes deal with
situations that take place outside the classroom, perhaps the most important
experiences that young people deal with while attending High School. The scenes
cover a wide variety of contemporary subjects, both serious and light hearted,
and audiences of any age can relate to the universal themes. Among the many
subjects are: prom night, home work, alcoholism, teen pregnancy, detention, teen
idols, peer pressure and class elections. The play's mix of comedy and drama
will both entertain and enlighten all in the same evening. Student actors in the
original production expressed their appreciation for words, thoughts and ideas
that they could relate to. As one student put it, “Finally, a play that speaks
the way we do and treats us like human beings with real emotions and feelings.”

It might be a good end of term recital project if you have the right mix of students, but It's main value in your library is as a source of age- appropriate scenes and monologues.
