Additional Info

Written with a wit and sarcasm only a teenager could master, this play follows Jane and Dick's journey through the miasma of high school, hoping to dodge its corruptible influences. Life sure was easier when all they needed to know were words like run, sat, saw, and ate! But now a new three-letter word has arrived, s-e-x, and nothing is the same! Their lives are cast into a nightmarish game show where they are tested on their partner's sexual history. They have to cram for Popularity 101, and the teacher is tough! A party invites itself over their house while their parents are away... and a policeman crashes the party! And when they're unfairly grounded, the siblings learn from a cosmic Judge that the PTO is actually a underground organization that has organized parents world-wide into total domination of their kids. When it seems there's no hope, Jane finally realizes that the only way to get through school is to be your own person and to have faith that maybe, someday, it will be over.
