A Classroom Comedy for Teens
by Jack Neary
3F / 5M /2 Either
Approximate Playing time: 60 Minutes

When Mikey McDougald’s lunch money is stolen from his locker, no one, especially not Judge Cynthia Chemise, would think of accusing good-looking Harlan Parmenter of ever doing such a thing. Although, of course he did. But the mock classroom trial adds humor and insight into the workings of the teenage mind and the struggles between the popular and the not-so-popular and the downright abused and bullied kids at school. Exasperated Suzanne, representing Mikey, does her best to maintain defense etiquette against a pushy defense attorney, Brandon, who harasses and intimidates his witnesses. The Bailiff has her hands full trying to keep Cynthia focused on procedure as her main interest remains flirting with the accused. But when Cynthia hands down an absurd sentence and dismisses the jury, Mikey finally gets his day in court. This fast paced comedy works equally well with High School or Middle School teens with important lessons in tolerance beneath the fun. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $40 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
