Annie Odwalla hates poetry. When she's assigned a powerfully sleep-inducing poem by her mysteriously-accented English teacher, she sets out with her best friend Abbie to investigate. Could tedious schoolwork actually be some kind of insidious plot against students everywhere? Or has she just been assigned the boring-est poem ever written? What they learn, with the help of the creepy yet intriguing new kid in school, is as potentially explosive as the poem is dull. (This play was specially commissioned by Playscripts for high school actors.)
