It\'s Tough to Be Somebody
It's Tough to Be Somebody
This play is published in The Last Touchy-Feely Drama on the American Stage (and Other Plays)
By Lee Howard and Greg Gamble

Cast: 4m., 4w. (gender changes possible.) An apathetic high school "Fame Awareness Education" class learns a hard lesson from a washed-up, wet-brained silver screen maven. This in-your-face hoot is a brashly insensitive look at sensitivity that touches on modern tolerance-mania with all the politeness of a cattle prod. The script swaggers with every insolent line, mocking without remorse as the overly caring teacher apologizes profusely for uttering such a bigoted and insensitive phrase as "Good morning, students." An intimidating, blustering traffic cop is brought in to scare the kids away from fame with a monologue on the evaporation of the soul under the limelight. Minimal set.
