                            What’s the Play About?
How do you get a class, filled with wild, crazy and conflicting personalities, to collaborate on an important project for the school’s biggest event in history? This is what Signorina Miceli’s play writing class is asked to do, at the Small Valley Community College.
With only three weeks to write a full length play, the assignment is riddled with problems caused by dueling, high strung students. This is topped off by a prank that gets way out of control… And a sex dream that turns into a heavy metal nightmare…
