Why did the chicken cross the road? Why is the sky blue? What’s two plus two? Why did he kill himself?

A group of teenagers grapple with unanswered questions as they struggle to understand why someone would run out on to the highway in front of semi. Especially when that someone seemed to have it all.

Here’s a chicken. Here’s the road. There’s the other side. What do you do when there is no answer?

Customer Comments

My students are really enjoying this challenging play! They love the message & love that it's not hitting us over the head with it. I'd like to thank you for understanding that high school students can handle more challenging material. I get so tired of playwrights & publishers who think that we need to dumb down material for high school.
