Kiki, Marcee, Michelle, Jethro, and Gretchen present their high school science fair projects: a treatise on Social Darwinism, a failed potato clock, the effect of Girl Scout cookie sales tactics on the rural poor, the effect of violin music on broccoli plants, and the hazards of nuclear energy. Twelve years later at the high school reunion, Social Darwinist Kiki is the emcee, and the only one of the original group in attendance -- but we find out, through simultaneous scenes, what has become of her former classmates' lives. Science Fair presents us with five offbeat kids, up close, warts and all, and lets us catch a glimpse of their future trajectory, daring us to take notice where, in most cases, society didn't. The play can be performed with 1 actress, or 5 actresses, or 4 actresses and 1 actor.

Published Reviews

"Playwright Jeanmarie Williams examines the vagaries of high school in a very funny one-person show... The final scene of lonely and unloved Marcee at her lowest draws titters, but is also the play's most disconcerting moment."

Martin Hernandez, LA Weekly
