Teenagers are faced with failure every day. Some mornings it feels like they have the letter F stamped on their foreheads in bright red ink. In a series of hilarious vignettes, students take on a multitude of challenges, each from a different perspective. From learning to driving a car, seemingly with mind of its own, to having an argument with a bag of chips in a vending machine, these teenagers discover that the only way to succeed is to stare failure in the face. And if they're going to take that risk, they might as well make it epic! Endless opportunities for creative staging, especially when fellow actors portray the gearshift, gas and brake pedals in the car scene. A true ensemble piece as any number of actors can be a part of the chorus or perform one of the many smaller roles.

"The production was a wonderful opportunity for varied approaches and experience. Mr. Hayward was a pleasure to work with and this play combined the qualities of comedy and a relevant theme." - E.S., Holdingford (MN) H.S.
"Very well received! We do message theatre, which is usually somewhat dark, but this is light with still a good message. Performed for a community grant awards program for approximately 100 community leaders and 2 other youth groups." - S.W., Director, Willcox, AZ
