HOPE HIGH, Class of 84’ Part One
It’s 1983 and Cedar City High is a vibrant inner city high school filled with cliques, wannabes, and misfits who all struggle to discover beauty and humor in the worst of places. From the halls of their school to the tables of the neighborhood diner, Uncle Kang’s, the students of Cedar City High strive to work together for the greater good of their community, even in the face of tragedy and pain.
HOPE HIGH, Class of 84’ had its debut at Long Warf Theatre, New Haven, CT Mother’s Day Weekend of 2013. It is a play that is special to my heart because I can see pieces of myself in each of the characters as they journey through high school. When you meet Taco, be sure to let him know that his confidence will take him far. Tell Jessica that bullying people because she hasn’t found her own identity yet will only keep her from growing. Let Roxanne know that protecting the underdog is always celebrated and that jocks only have a moment in the spotlight for a short period of time. Remind Auntie Sweet that there is always a rainbow for the unicorn that is determined to live her purpose. Tell Wisdom Motha Earth, and Moon Goddess that being a true leader does not mean dividing others. Encourage Patti to stay true to who she is if she loses her corniness; that’s what makes her awesome!
I hope that you will enjoy this play and much as I enjoyed creating it.
