In the near future, a ragtag band of teens struggles for survival in the face of a global warming catastrophe. Despite dire circumstances that leave them scavenging for food and water, they find fun where they can, frolicking in the "party pool" and forgetting themselves just long enough to be teenagers. But when they're forced to flee their makeshift home because of an outbreak of sickness and land in "New San Francisco," the group starts to break apart. Will they follow Deme, their leader, and chase after the rumored polar bears that she believes are the key to their long-term survival, or make the best of where they are?

Upcoming Guest Artist Visits I'm excited to be returning to the Asian Festival of Children's Content in Singapore in late May, and during this trip, I will also be a guest at the Australian International School in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and then heading on to Yokohama International School in the Tokyo area.
The Locker Next 2 Mine Now Available My dramedy about teen suicide and dealing with loss, The Locker Next 2 Mine, is now available in both full-length and one-act (ideal for competition) versions. The full-length version had its world premiere at The Randolph School in Huntsville (AL) in November, and the one-act version had its premiere at Soquel High School in Santa Cruz (CA) in February. You could stage the next production!
Though the one-act version, available from Playscripts, stands on its own (and is perfect for competition!), this play was always intended to be a full-length composed of three acts: Rumors of Polar Bears, Ursa Major and Northern Lights. Look for the other two plays in the cycle sometime in 2013.
