Additional Info

This starkly realistic play for young adults addresses the issue of youth unemployment. Unemployed youths are encouraged to enter a competition and win $100,000 with which they can escape from a life of no hope. They discover that they have been exploited in a callous and elaborate hoax designed to amuse the rich. Here is a stimulating play with dark, comic overtones and flexible casting. Music for the two songs is contained in the book.
