Additional Info

Everybody in high school knows that the real learning takes place outside the
classroom - in the halls, outside the school before the bell, hangin' out in the
parking lot.

This continuation of Class Action covers a variety of contemporary subjects,
both serious and lighthearted. In too many plays, high school students are
presented as angst-ridden teens desperately trying to make it through each day.
Yes, there are plenty of obstacles, but as this play shows, there are plenty of
good times and lots of laughter, too. The many scenes and monologues have been
arranged in a “suggested” order and you may find it necessary to change the
order and/or omit some of the scenes depending on your needs.
