Youth Theatre's Conservatory program wrote this show for the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland in the summer of 2019. The scenes and song lyrics were created from work done in the classroom. Through improvisation, movement exercises, and writing workshops, the students collected a lot of scenes and monologues that were edited down by their director, Penny Caywood.
"It was the best show I saw at the fringe this year and I saw many great shows. It is such an important message at such an important time. Entertaining an audience is important but I believe that theatre is at its best when it informs, moves, says something about our society and asks it’s audience members to think. I was so moved (I cried for hours) by what you and your actors created. WOW! Congrats again to you and your actors." Russ Wendt, Florida HS Theatre Teacher
