"Hi I'm Skye and I'm done being a stereotypical... I don't even want to say the word. I'm tired. Tired of the rumors, some of which are true."

The geek. The freak. The stoner. The dumb jock. The mean girl. The thespian. The slut. The lonely girl. High school is full of stereotypes – or is it? Told in a series of interlaced vignettes, these "stereotypical" teens fight tooth and nail to reinvent themselves. There's nothing more powerful than the teen who stands alone, proud of who they are.

This play contains real situations, real feelings, and real thoughts about all the mature topics. Yes, that means sex, drugs and retainers.
