COMEDY. Ms. Baker, a high school guidance counselor, does her best to help students every day with their hodgepodge of problems, but it isn’t easy! There’s a student who hates his name, a freshman who can’t find the gym, a teen obsessed with videogames, and a student who repeats whatever his teachers say and insists it’s an “affliction.” But Ms. Baker’s day is far from over. The student council president has eaten all the chocolate bars for the school fundraiser, a cat is on the loose, and two love-struck teens want to arrange their schedules so that they can be in every class together. And to top it off, a student, who can only be described as being from “another planet,” arrives looking for a friendly ear. Easy to stage with a flexible cast.
