A Play in Playlets
by Jon Jory
10W / 5M Ages 17-21
Flexible Playing Time: 35-50 Minutes

This collection of five playlets enters the contemporary world of young men and women transitioning between childhood and adulthood. The first playlet finds three anxious friends on a camping trip before heading off to college. The second, a serious confrontation between a young woman and the elitist fraternity student who raped her. Next is a cleverly insightful and exacerbating take on the paradox between a new 117-million-dollar student union with Jai Lai courts, hot, cold and salt water pools and a sunset room with a different sunset every hour to impersonal overcrowded classrooms, ridiculously low teacher compensation and skyrocketing tuition. In playlet #4, two college losers spend most of their day watching TV and drinking beer, waiting for Godot to arrive. An ex-foreign-languages-student-turned-plumber arrives unexpectedly offering to exchange temporary boyfriend status for help hauling her king-size mattress upstairs. Finally, we revisit two of the original three young women on a reunion camping trip after they have graduated from college. The third friend has died but appears to them with an offer to share the meaning of life. If only they had brought a pad and pen. If used for competition, one or more playlets in Gen Z Does College may be cut to meet time restrictions.
