Time passes and the voices in your head remind you that though you are having trouble with the test, your personal life is far, far worse. Then you reach the essay question. The good news -- it's an opinion essay. The bad news -- it's in Chinese. And things aren't going to get better! 

REVIEWS:

"This play remains a perennial favorite with audiences of all ages! Who can't relate to the idea of a killer test, and we've all had 'that teacher' -- the one who seems to dislike you no matter what. The levels of humor and subtle shifts in time and place make this play entertaining and fun to produce."
