Reviews from Past Producers

A group of students have an online meeting with their principal while they’re all under quarantine. They want to regain normalcy and recoup what they’ve lost as seniors: prom, school play, graduation. But nothing is normal. Everyone is losing things. It’s a scary and uncertain time, like a fire has destroyed memories that haven’t happened yet.

This play is intended to be performed in a video conference call or meeting. It is specifically geared toward actors who are not in the same physical space.
