Reviews from Past Producers

A haunting, futuristic drama.

Teenagers in the future are obedient, polite, and respectful. This is due in large part to the government-required "Observation Sessions." But there is a dark underside to this utopian vision.

After learning her brother is scheduled to be "observed," one of the most obedient students starts to question the system. She must decide whether to remain obedient or speak out and face the consequences.

I just wanted to tell you that my cast LOVES your play (Look Me in the Eye). They have done more analysis on the plot and character (all on their own) than with any other show I have done.

I would like to express my gratitude for your work. Last year we did your Ths Phne 2: The Next Generation and we went to State with it.

It is so great to find quality scripts on modern topics that students can relate to. Since we have to take everything on a school bus, I so appreciate your simple, easy sets. You are our secret weapon for the One Act Competition. Keep up the great work.
