About The Play
Dramedy. 35-45 minutes. 7-21+ females, 1-14+ males (9-22+ performers possible). Suitable for high school and older (and possibly advanced middle school groups).
The play premiered at Lancaster Country Day School (Lancaster, PA) and was first read at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy (PA).
All Betty wanted to do was meet her hero and ask a few questions about her book. But now her hero is dead, the body is gone and the cafeteria food is suddenly 87% more flavorful than it was the day before. It's Sweeney Todd meets high school in this dark comedy with scheming cheerleaders, mysterious loners and a couple of teens just trying to survive their daily lives with their dignity - and their bone structure - intact.
