Comedy. By Stephen Gregg.
Cast: 11 to 17 either gender. This Is a Text is This Is a Test's rowdier little sister: a play about the impossibility of taking a test, updated for the age of distraction. Today's the dreaded final, but Sophia is ready. She's prepped and then prepped some more because this test is going to change her life! There's just one little problem: Sophia's been up for the last two nights, which is making it hard for her to focus. All Sophia wants to do is finish the exam, but her best friend is engaging in germ warfare, the new student is allergic to everything including stillness, and that military-issue cell phone she's using keeps tempting her with texts. Flexible staging. Any role can be either gender except for one brief fantasy love interest that should be the opposite gender of the other role. Approximate running time: 30 minutes.
