Additional Info

This two-act play deals with the problems facing teens. The play can be used in classrooms or on stage to open communication and understanding on hard to deal with topics. If staged, the cast should include teens, parents, and teachers.

Wanda struggles with pregnancy and thinks she can take care of a baby until reality sets in. "Who am I kidding. I can't even keep my room clean." All problems are handled with humor and compassion and show both sides of a problem: the teen's side and a family or friend's side. The topics range from prom anxiety, AIDS, adoption, cults, and more, including that Mother of all teenage terrors - yes, acne. This play opens the hearts and minds and lets teens know, at the end of the day, we're all in this together, and bullying is never the answer.
