As auditions for the school play begin, members of the drama club hear a voice from
the back of the auditorium claiming to be the director, Mr. John Shakespeare - a
character they made up to get permission to put on the play! The plot is complicated
by the unrequited love of several of the students, a club member who lapses into
characters from plays mentioned and the possibility the Mr. Shakespeare might be
the ghost of Alice's father! Since some of the exits, entrances and character positions
are in the rear of the auditorium, the audience is drawn quickly into solving the
mystery of just who is John Shakespeare. With themes of love, competition, aspirations
and dreams, this fast-paced, bare-stage play is ideal for high school students.
