High School

by David Torgesen (Antenna Theater Productions, 2002)

Produced in the form of a walking tour of Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley, California, this piece captures the experience of contemporary high school life. Over the course of the tour, we pass through the high school's buildings, courtyards, cafeteria, administrative offices, and bathrooms, gaining insight into the hopes, dreams, and fears felt by teenagers on a typical day.
