Fun and Spooky Shows with a Lesson!

I recently read Fear Pressure and The Dodo Challenge, and I just wanted to share how much I enjoyed these engaging pieces! Both are spooky in plot and atmosphere. And it’s pretty scary to think about all that teens in today’s world have to navigate in social media and social situations, which is the core of both works! Great plays that would be highly produceable and fun for cast and audience!
