SYNOPSIS: Five high school teachers find themselves at the end of their rope…and it’s only the first day of school! From an English teacher with mood swings and a math teacher in the middle of a divorce, to an elderly chemistry teacher with back pain and a geography teacher with a whip, the semester gets off to a rocky start. Add to the mix a drama teacher who sleeps on his desk, and it only becomes a matter of time before one of them snaps. As the students navigate this bumpy road, they begin to realize it may have been their behavior that pushed these teachers perilously close to the edge. Will they be able to make things right before it’s too late, or has this faculty completely lost its faculties?

"This play was so much fun for our cast and audience. The student and teacher roles are fairly balanced size-wise (which I like when doing a class project), and the student lines are more authentic than what you find in some scripts. The teacher roles are outrageous yet relatable."
By Teresa Anthofer - Sonoran Science Academy
"Our 9-12 grade drama team made it to state with this play! It was hilarious and so fun to watch!"
