Four friends -- a hippie, a jock, a perfectionist, and a slacker -- negotiate the college application process as graduation day rapidly approaches. SATs and GPAs are just a part of their worries, as senioritis, awkward interviews, and the pressure to succeed provide even bigger hurdles in the race to the fat-envelope finish line.

Published Reviews

"A gifted writer with an ear for dialogue. There's plenty of sardonic repartee in Perfect Score which tracks a year in the lives of four friends going through the torturous process of applying to college."

Jesse Hamlin, San Francisco Chronicle

"Katie Henry has written a wonderful play about college admissions from the viewpoint those most affected by it -- the students themselves..."
