“Neet. N-E-E-T is Teen spelled backwards. That’s how I feel. That’s how I see the world.”

Teen life – backwards, forwards and inside-out. From dealing with the tractor beam of insecurity and doubt, to dealing with parents who couldn’t hear you if they tried. From fighting pimples to fighting the hallway. From knowing math skills aren’t going to get the girl to knowing that happy teenagers exist. They may not get the laughs, or the drama, or the big monologue, but they’re there.

This play explores many forms. We’ve got everything from kitchen sink, to absurd, to movement, to audience participation, to song. There’s even the opportunity to add your own scene in the mix!
