How Not To Do Your Homework
A brand new play, available from YouthPLAYS, Inc. and awaiting a premiere!

This was a fun play to write - especially coming up with the outlandish excuses the students try to use on their teacher! I don't consider it high art, just a fun, silly romp that I would have loved to perform when I was a kid, and one I think will give parents a good laugh.
As the publisher describes it, "Students the world over have been crying out for a simple instruction manual in the art of avoiding homework, and finally their prayers have been answered. Watch and learn how to bamboozle your parents and put one over on your teachers in this fast-paced, tongue-deeply-in-cheek guide to tactics that just might change your lifeā€¦or land you in a heap of trouble!"
