When Chris, a high school student, isn't able to attend the funeral of his best friend, James, he decides to hold a farewell party at the gravesite. Attending the party with Chris are six of James' closest friends: Katherine, an intelligent but "ditzy" girl; Sarah, the new kid at school; Betty and Larry, soon to be married; Lisa, James' ex-girlfriend; and Tillman, the class brain. The group quickly discovers that they don't know each other very well - James was the common bond between them. As the play progresses, each person reveals what he meant to them. To some it was small - the shared love of bad music; to some it was important - the only friend in an abusive world - but he changed the life of each of them. With unforced dialogue and a smooth flow of encounters, the play has a simple, natural feel. This one-act has already taken several high school performers to competition. A real ensemble cast play with a simple setting.
