About the Play

Comedy. 15-20 minutes. 3-9 females, 2-9 males (7-15 performers possible). Suitable for high school and older.

Premiered at The American School in Japan (Tokyo, Japan). Honorable mention in the 2011 YouthPLAYS New Voices One-Act Play Competition for young playwrights.

The Totally Life Changing Letter That Doesn't Really Matter is also available as part of the New Voices: Winning One-Acts by Young Playwrights collection.


A high school senior, Lily, has applied to college. The letter that will seal her fate is now in her hands. Should she open it? As she contemplates this potentially life changing event, the play takes a comic look back at the application process and her journey through the wacky, pressure-filled world of high school academics that's led her to where she is now.
