One Act 2020

Can a high school journalism class save their school newspaper before it’s cut from the budget forever? All they have to do is focus on the problem and agree on a solution. Although, there are plenty of distractions with the big football game that night and the thunderstorm outside. 

Noah, a budding investigative journalist, and Tessa, an aspiring author, just want to get their writing published in the school newspaper. However, Miss Reynolds and the rest of the class think their work is “fluff”. It isn’t until the power goes out and students begin disappearing that anyone takes Noah and Tessa seriously. Can their ideas rescue the journalism class from the terrifying gliblins and the paper from an abrupt cancellation? Could pudding really save the day?  

One unexpected twist after another will keep the audience guessing until the final “gotcha” ending!
