The plays were actually quite good. I'm not sure our group understood the first play but the others we became quite emotionally involved with the characters.

The first play, The Bench, was very well done. Kudos to the playwright and the actors! Unfortunately we didn't enjoy the other two as quite as much.

Very interesting plays, excellent acting andwonderful introductions by the young playwrights. It is hard to fathom that the playwrights are of high school age.
