SYNOPSIS: Sixteen students nervously gather to take a test. Their anxiety increases ten-fold when the mysterious, disembodied proctor tells them, “You are here for the biggest examination of your life. How you do on this test will determine absolutely everything. Try to relax.” As the exam proceeds, it only becomes more confusing (and, for us, amusing!). The questions are strange; the answers are arbitrary. To make matters worse, the test-takers find themselves occasionally getting electric shocks! Finally, the truth comes out: the test - in all its unfairness, chaos and shifting rules - is life itself.
