Laughing Once More
Laughing Once More
By Many Young Playwrights. Edited and adapted by Tom Erhard.

Cast: 3m., 6w. This is the third in the exciting series of anthology-theatre evenings of powerful and honest writings by high-school students about their own lives, their problems and their triumphs. As with his I Know I Saw Gypsies and I Saved a Winter Just for You, Erhard has assigned a basic personality trait to each performer. They then play appropriate characterizations in the dramatizations of carefully arranged poems and stories. The focus is on the wonderful and mysterious process of creative writing by young people. To the challenge that all youthful writing is downbeat, several performers convince the others that much high-school writing is, instead, very upbeat. This evening of theatre looks at finding ideas to write about, the inspiration of good teachers, the incredible difficulty and complexity of boy/girl and parent/student relationships, and the hurts and terrors that exist in young peoples' everyday lives and provides a laughing conclusion of happy-ending stories and poems. Area staging.
