The Short Story of Michael Fish
A play for middle school students. Length: 45-55 minutes
After years living abroad, Julia Mahood returns home for middle school. No one is more excited to see her than Michael Fish, her childhood friend who remembers everything about her younger self -- even her second grade Halloween costume. When Will, the inarticulate star of the basketball team, begs Michael to help him woo Julia, he agrees. But as Julia falls for Will (who is actually Michael sending her text messages), Michael realizes that in helping his friend, he is also hurting himself. A hilarious update of Cyrano de Bergerac for our modern technological age.
