A Guide to the Teenage Zone

by Claudia Haas
Directed by Greg Dziama
About the Play: This is a light-hearted look at young teenagers who are still part child, yet emerging adults. A guide leads us into the everyday world of a group of 12 to17 teenagers starting early in the morning. We follow them to school, back home again and end with late-night phone calls reviewing events of the day as a new dawn approaches. In eight rich scenes, we see sophisticated, yet simple interactive relationships working together: Good Morning!, The Bus Stop, Homeroom, First Period, Lunch, The Bus Ride, The Afternoon, and Evenings and Telephones. Sometimes teens that seem a bit uninterested in their current life circumstance emerge as late bloomers. Regardless, teens come up with brilliant ideas and questions about life as they grow into adulthood. This play highlights some of this transition.
