Invited to Play Marathon, International Thespians Festival.

The phone. The most beautiful, the most wonderful communication device in all the world. Or is it...

Without the phone there'd be no obscene callers, no chatty Cathys who won't shut up, telemarketers who think the sun rises and sets with carpet cleaning, no awkward silences, no pressure to have an interesting phone message with all the bells and whistles.

And there'd be no Harry.

Poor Harry. Poor sweet desperate Harry, desperately trying to get up the nerve to call a girl and ask her to the dance. Don't hang up on Harry. Don't you dare! Don't do it!

This is a vignette play! What is a Vignette Play?

Customer Comments

You are one of the Rock Stars of the Youth Theatre world in my estimation.

I just performed This Phone Will Explode at the Tone with my kids at District 7 One Act Festival. Your plays are GREAT to work with. The kids love the scripts and we can do lots of different things with them.
