About the Book

Presented here are two unique one-act plays. Originally written for competitions at the middle school level, they have both continued to great success with audiences of all ages. "Will I?" explores terminal illness. Your audience will experience the highs and lows as the decisions play out onstage in the brain of our patient. They will laugh, they will will cry, they will be moved. "Three Minutes to Silence" follows the memories of a parent while Nazi Zyklon B gas permeates the air of the gas chamber, ultimately shutting down all memories and synaptic function. These plays run approximately 30 minutes each and will ensnare the minds of your audience.
