The Boy and Girl discover themselves in a meadow late at night. She and the Boy are dead. But the faces have changed almost beyond recognition. That is because each has tried to make himself the sort of person he mistakenly supposed the other wanted him to be. Not until after death has either realized how much happier he would have been as his natural self.
On the approved list of short plays for contest for school year 2006-2007, updated 08/02/06 to include revisions beginning school year 2006-07, for the [Austin, Texas, U.S.A.] University Interscholastic League’s One-Act Play Contest. Founded in 1927, it is the largest high school play production contest or play festival in the world. More than 14,000 Texas high school students in more than 1,000 plays participate in 300 plus contests, which take place from the beginning of March through the three-day, 40-production State Meet One-Act Play Contest. The One-Act Play Contest is supported by more than 200 college and university faculty members serving as critic judges. The League’s theatre program is considered by historians to be the foundation of educational and community theatre in Texas. It continues to be a major factor motivating increasing numbers of schools to offer theatre arts as an academic subject.
