You're Next
received its first full production at Lyman High School as part of the Gunplay trilogy, competing in the Florida State Thespian Festival. 


Jay's been thrown into the shower—again. As he huddles with his best friend Peter in search of a solution to his bullying problem, Peter reveals that he's brought a gun for Jay to use against his tormentor. But when Jay hesitates and Peter won't let up, it gradually becomes clear that Jay's not the only one who needs help...

"It was an amazing journey working on Gunplay. We took this trilogy all the way to the State level of competition and learned something new with every performance. This piece offers many educational opportunities without preaching the dangers of guns." - Michelle Backel, Faculty Director, Lyman High School (Longwood, FL)

"It was the favourite of four plays studied for almost two-thirds of the kids." - supervising teacher at John F. Ross CVI (Guelph, Ontario).
