    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! Learn More

  3. All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play

    All I Really Need to Know I Learned by Being in a Bad Play

    By Werner Trieschmann.

    Product Code: AC7000

    • Comedy | Farce
    • Middle School | High School | College and Adult | Family (all ages) | Senior Adults
    • 3m., 3w., 11 either gender, expandable.
    • 40 min.
    Based on several disastrous theatrical experiences, this play examines the process of putting on a show that is less than good. We go from the audition—where the director is more worried about roast beef than paying attention to the warm-up exercise, and the neurotic cast pretends to be bacon—to rehearsals—where a passive-aggressive stage manager gives everyone grief. This bad play within a play won't win any awards, but will keep audiences in stitches. Learn More

  5. 1984

    1984

    Adapted by Robert Owens, Wilton E. Hall Jr. and William A. Miles Jr. From the novel by George Orwell.

    Product Code: N15000

    • Drama
    • Middle School | High School | College and Adult | Senior Adults
    • 14 actors.
    • 95 min.

    This authorized stage adaptation is true to the novel in which Orwell depicts with great power the horrors of man's fate in a society where Big Brother is always watching—where everything that is not prohibited is compulsory. As your cast presents the play, you will be participating in a theatrical event that is both powerful and disturbingly provocative.

    One of the survivors of Terezin, Raja, having lived through it all, teaching when there was nothing to teach with, helping to give hope when there was little reason for hope, creating a little world of laughter, flowers and butterflies behind the barbed wire, tells the true story of the children. Butterflies became a symbol of defiance for the children, making it possible for them to live on and play happily while waiting to be transported. Learn More
