THE AGONY AND THE HILARITY: THE LIFE OF TEENS by Edith Weiss
 
Two girls confront disaster on the biggest night of their young lives: they are wearing the same dress at the Prom. It's the first day of high school, and two lost freshmen meet a three-headed guidance unit full of platitudes. A group therapy run by teens deals with burning issues such as sibling rivalry, a broken hair dryer, a girl who is a poet in love with a pirate and a hysterical politically correct fairy tale hour are some of the sketches in this show. It's Saturday Night Live without the snark, and appropriate for students. Sketches in which they play characters like themselves, and sketches where they get to stretch and be Huns or New Agers.
 
From monologues to 2 actor scenes to scenes of 11 actors, this show can be mixed and matched to suit your needs. This comedy deals with real issues teenagers face, as well as sketches that are just fun for your actors. Simple set pieces define one scene from the next. This show was workshopped with teenaged actors and has the teenage stamp of approval.
