Synopsis

Sophia needs to get a 61! If she gets a 61 on her Romeo and Juliet exam, she'll get into Coldwater State. But she was up all night, distracted by a mysterious text, and now she can't focus. Sophia's only hope: Flowcus, the concentration pill that sits tantalizingly close on the teacher's desk. This Is a Text is This Is a Test's rowdier little sister, a battle against an exam, waged during the age of distraction. Sophia's quest to get into Coldwater State ends in a way that neither she nor the teacher could have anticipated and leads to a conclusion that's both surprising and unexpectedly moving.

Customer Reviews

"Great ensemble piece for a group of young middle school actors. Some fun opportunities for special effects. It was nice to have the inclusion of a character who provides some piano accompaniment. A quirky and fun script."
Review by Whitney Keyes, Don Ross Middle School, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Bringing the actors further downstage is important. The closer the actors and set pieces are to the audience the more engaged the audience becomes ... The actor that plays Ms. Bropila should be silly as well as somewhat wild and unpredictable. The audience definitely laughed as Ms. Bropila got more and more ridiculous and over the top. We've all had some pretty crazy teachers, and I think that's why the audience laughs. They remember those teachers from their own experiences. "
Tip by Hope Martinez, Jane Hambric School, El Paso, Texas
