Cast: 2m., 3w. Deniece, Jessie, Michael, Claire and Shawn are classmates. Jessie and Michael are going out. Same with Claire and Shawn. Deniece? Well, she's always been a little different: "Ain't no man gonna touch these lips 'til I got a signed document and a preacher saying, 'Get on with yourselves.' If any man will have me." Yet, despite her non-participation, or perhaps because of it, Deniece becomes a confidante for the others as they struggle with this most ardent of passions. Complicating the issue are outside pressures like friends, family and MTV, plus the real-life consequences of elation, frustration, date rape, incest, and AIDS. All the while, Deniece listens and nods understandingly, providing perspective now and then by sharing her own deeply moving and surprising story. Bare stage w/props. Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.
