To call the college application process a whirlwind would be an understatement. Meet Cecilia, a high school senior struggling with her college essay. She and her peers grapple with their aspirations, frustrations and uncertainty as they navigate this impending chapter in their lives—and sometimes they're left with more questions than answers in this play based on interviews with 40 young adults in the thick of it.

"Ashley manages to perfectly capture the joy, heartbreak, and downright confusion that comes with being a young person in the age of societal pressure to decide what you want to do from such a young age. If you want to be transported back to being a senior in high school, look no further than this piece." - Jess Balick Goodman, Producer
