This Is a Test
This Is a Test
"This play remains a perennial favorite with audiences of all ages! Who can't relate to the idea of a killer test, and we've all had 'that teacher'-the one who seems to dislike you no matter what. The levels of humor and subtle shifts in time and place make this play entertaining and fun to produce." —Jennifer Pasko, Solanco High School, Quarryville, PA.

The 2013/2014 season will celebrate the 25th anniversary of This Is a Test!

A proven contest winner and thespian favorite.
Comedy. By Stephen Gregg.

Cast: 13 to 15 actors, either gender. As the ticking clock reminds you, only 60 minutes remain to complete this oh-so-important predictor of your future. But you didn't get the review sheets, the teacher doesn't like you and your classmates are blatantly cheating. Time passes and the voices in your head remind you that though you are having trouble with the test, your personal life is far, far worse. Then you reach the essay question. The good news—it's an opinion essay. The bad news—it's in Chinese. And things aren't going to get better! One int. set. Approximate running time: 30 minutes.

Notes
"This Is a Test is a play that begs to be messed with." —Stephen Gregg
