Dramedy

It’s easy to stick a label on someone. You’re late, you’re a loser. You’re in detention, you’re bad. You’re slow, you’re not smart enough.

We do it every day. We’ve done it in the past, we’ll do it in the future. And these are the kinds of labels that are near-impossible to remove.

In three separate but connected scenes, characters push against the labels stuck on them by others.
