Teachers - This is great for first time drama students - has parts for the entire class, many with only a few lines.  Some great opportunities for tech and costume starters.  Another plus - although it's been tested on audiences, it hasn't been seen outside of San Diego yet, so you can probably get it as a premiere for your community.

An ordinary classroom, with ordinary students…or is it?  Three sets of
students are ready for another day in Mr. Dillon’s History class – but it turns out that something is going on that is not in the history books!



1960s-  Heather-   hippie, miniskirt, headband

          Steve- long hair, matching headband


1980s-  Michael   math geek

         Donna – dressed like Madonna and Flashdance


2000s-  Brittany   -tattoos, piercing

         Jeremy --  short hair, earring

 SET - This is a typical high school classroom that has gone through the changes of many years.  We know it is a history class because there is a big sign, faded that declares,

“Those who do not learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat this class."

There are old-style chairs from the 60s with the writing table attached, and an old-fashioned chalk-board, but there are signs of the 70s, 80s and 90s, too, even the new millennia, though, in modern maps, and perhaps a picture of the current President or other up-to-date world affairs people.



(As the play begins, we hear students arriving in the halls – this is a medium sized high school, somewhere in the Midwest, during the winter, so kids entering the class have on heavy coats – when they arrive, everyone looks the same – bundled.  But as everyone takes off their coats, we see something unusual.


First couple to enter is Heather and Steve.  Heather is pretty, with long hair and a headband, wearing a mini-shirt and something- jewelry or shirt or headband that has a peace sign on it.  Steve is Heather’s boyfriend, with a matching headband and matching long hair.  They are very physical, but stop when others enter the room.





The next couple is Michael and Donna . She is dressed like Madonna, but with the ripped sweatshirt from Flashdance.   Michael has on Tom Cruise Aviator sunglasses, but is a little geeky.   Although we see they like each other, they do not touch often.


Then we see Brittany and Jeremy enter, dressed a la Spears and Federline or Angelina and Brad, plus she has a nose ring and he has an earring.  They obviously have been a couple -they have matching tattoos on their arms, ipods, but no more, and this is weird as we can see they still like each other


As they remove their heavy winter coats and see the others, each couple is a little surprised.)

HEATHER   (All together to each other) 
They must be new in class.



STEVE -  Where’s Mr. Dillon?


HEATHER - Probably making copies of something to put us to sleep.


BRITTANY -  Are you, like, in Mr. Dillon’s class?


HEATHER -  Yeah, all year…are you?


STEVE  –I know this class is boring, but I don’t remember you guys.


MICHAEL -  It is boring!


DONNA -  How boring is it?


 ALL TOGETHER -     It’s so boring that…


STEVE -…They handed out pillows with the textbooks!


JEREMY -  When I think of Mr. Dillon, I   (starts to snore)


HEATHER - Mrs. Reynolds is almost as boring…


STEVE -  Yeah, but she wears those blouses…


DONNA -   She’s old!



STEVE            - Who cares?



STEVE -  It does perk up the class!









MICHAEL – Does anyone know what’s Mr. Dillon’s first name?


DONNA -  Whatever it is, it’s gotta be dull!


BRITTANY -  Not as dull as the war…


STEVE – I don’t know, World War II wasn’t that bad…


MICHAEL - World War II – we’re doing the Vietnam War now!


HEATHER – The Vietnam War – we’re not studying that! 


STEVE – Yeah, we’re protesting it!


BRITTANY – I thought we were doing the Gulf War….



STEVE                        (Together)  What?




MICHAEL – (Puzzled)  When was that?


BRITTANY – Well, it happened when I was a baby, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t

happen…(To Jeremy)  It did happen, didn’t it?


JEREMY – (Disgusted ) Yeah, it happened…


STEVE -  So how old do you think Dullon is?


DONNA -  He’s pretty old…

HEATHER -  He’s gotta be at least 35-40…


JEREMY -  Are you kidding…75….


STEVE -  Yeah, anyone over 40 might as well be 100!  They’re all part of the



(Steve goes over to Jeremy, who is letting Brittany listen to some music on an  ipod)


STEVE -  Hey, man, what is that?


JEREMY – An ipod…


STEVE -  Oh…


            (Steve goes over to Heather)


STEVE – Something for plant biology, probably for the science fair….


HEATHER -  Cool…


            (Michael goes over to Steve.)


MICHAEL -  So, how bad do you hate this class….


STEVE -  Actually, this is a very special class for Heather and me…


HEATHER -  (holds his hand)  Yeah….we first started to…


STEVE -  This is where we first slept together….


HEATHER -  (Pretends to be embarrassed)  Steve!


STEVE -  It’s true….Heather and I fell asleep during one of Dullman’s lectures

about…(tries to remember)  about…


HEATHER – About the Depression…it was depressing!


STEVE – We fell asleep and Dillon woke us up at the end of class and we had to do

detention together…


DONNA -  That’s what happened with Michael and me – we were passing notes…


MICHAEL -  For days…

DONNA – Then he caught us…


MICHAEL – And read one of the notes out loud…


DONNA – Talk about an embarrassing moment…


JEREMY  - (Thinking)  That sounds familiar…


MICHAEL – It was at the beginning of the year…


DONNA - (Blushing)  What a year…


BRITTANY -  Mr. Dillon isn’t so bad…


            (They all groan)


BRITTANY -  He assigned me and Jeremy to work together on a project about the Cold



JEREMY -  (Remembers)  That wasn’t …OK…


BRITTANY -  It wasn’t so cold, was it…


JEREMY – (Ignores this)  We might even be up for a big state history prize…that’d help

with college next year…


BRITTANY – I don’t think college is that big a deal..


JEREMY -  That’s because you’re not going…


BRITTANY -  I am too going to college!  I’m going to the community college…Not

everybody can be a genius, Jeremy….(A little nasty, under her breath)  Jeremy Genius…


JEREMY -  Cut it out, Brittany!


MICHAEL -  Hey, what’s the deal on Dillon?  He’s usually here early…


DONNA -  There was a lot of snow this morning…


HEATHER – (A little high)  It was cool….It looked like white blankets for all the trees…


STEVE -  Yeah, it’s hard to come in here and do anything except just stare out the




DONNA – (To Heather)  I like your skirt – where’d you get it?


HEATHER – Over at  Rowling’s …


DONNA -  (Surprised) Didn’t that place close down like an age ago?


HEATHER -  (Her turn to be surprised)  I just got this last month..


DONNA -  Is it near the mall ?   


HEATHER -  What mall?


BRITTANY -  Yeah, what mall?


DONNA -  The West Ridge Mall!


BRITTANY -  That place was torn down when I was a baby – they have apartments there



HEATHER -  What apartments?  There’s no apartments on West Ridge!


BRITTANY – I may be dumb, but I know there are apartments…


DONNA – How do you know?


BRITTANY – Because I live in one of them.


JEREMY -  This is freaky…


STEVE -  Yeah, I don’t recognize you guys as being in this class..


MICHAEL -  Me neither.


BRITTANY -  but we all know Mr. Dillon…


STEVE -  Wait a minute…


            (Steve runs to the bookshelf and pulls out a book to show them.)


STEVE – Have you ever seen…


MICHAEL -  The Guinness Book…


JEREMY – Of World Records?


            (They all laugh and this freaks them out some more.)


DONNA  -  Didn’t everybody write in that?


STEVE -  It started with me….


DONNA – It was a class tradition…


            (They all look at it together.)


STEVE -  (Reading)  The Most Boring Class in the World…


HEATHER -  (Reading)  Class of 1966!


MICHAEL -  And I wrote


DONNA -  Class of 1986…


JEREMY – And I wrote


BRITTANY – Class of 2006…


            (As they read this, they all pull apart, now really getting worried)


HEATHER – How could it be…


            (No one wants to say it, but Steve decides to go for it.)


STEVE -  (Scared)  What year is this?



JEREMY -      2006




MICHAEL -    1986




STEVE -         1966



STEVE -  Maybe I shouldn’t have smoked this morning…


JEREMY -  I didn’t take anything…


MICHAEL – Not this morning…


DONNA – I never have….


BRITTANY -  (Excited )  I think I saw this on TV- we’re in a…time warp!


HEATHER -  Like on the Twilight Zone…


JEREMY -  That is retro…


STEVE -  What?


BRITTANY -  We must all be here for a reason -   that’s what happens on those shows…


JEREMY -  Shut up, Brittany…that is so stupid..


DONNA -  (Annoyed)  Don’t you tell her to shut up!


JEREMY -  Hey, you’re not my mother…


DONNA -  What does that have to do with it – you don’t talk to your girlfriend like that!


MICHAEL -  Yeah, man, it’s not cool…


JEREMY -  She’s not my girlfriend!  We just hooked up a few times, worked on a



BRITTANY -  (Sarcastic) Yeah, he’s too smart for me, he’s going to a REAL college,

not community…


JEREMY -  I didn’t mean that…


BRITTANY – Yeah, you did…


HEATHER -  Let’s not fight – it’s better to make love, not war…


JEREMY -  I remember that – it was a slogan from the 60s….


BRITTANY  -  So that kinds of explains all your weird clothing…



DONNA -  (Amazed)  Our clothing?


BRITTANY  - Yeah, like what is this?


            (She indicates something on Heather’s outfit)


STEVE -  And what is this?


            (He pulls at Jeremy’s earring.)


JEREMY – Hey, man I just got that done, it still hurts a little…


MICHAEL -  Earrings for guys!


 (He shudders and Steve joins him)


BRITTANY -  So what’re your names?


STEVE -  I’m Steve, and this is Heather…


DONNA -  I’m Donna, like Madonna, only better…


MICHAEL -  Michael….


JEREMY – Jeremy and


BRITTANY -  Brittany..   whew….that makes me feel better…


JEREMY -  That none of these people is in our class?


STEVE – (Aggressive)  Hey, maybe it’s that you’re not in our class!


JEREMY  -  Hey, man, chill…


BRITTANY -  I just mean, my parents’ names are Laurie and Joe, so, like, none of you

would have been my parents…


JEREMY -  Well, that makes no sense…


BRITTANY – In all those time deals, it’s like you meet your parents, when they’re

younger, so you can understand that, I guess, like they had the same problems you do.  Something like that…


MICHAEL -  My Mom and Dad were killed in a car crash when I was a baby…I was

raised by my grandparents…


DONNA -  I was a little weirded out when you said your name was Steve, because my

Dad’s name is Steve….


JEREMY – Yeah, My Mom’s name is Donna, but my Dad’s name was Luke – and they’ve been divorced since I was a baby….so, Brittany, try to think of another TV show that works…


BRITTANY -  (Doesn’t realize he’s joking)  OK, what about Superman?  Could this be

like, Smallville or something?


STEVE -  But, like, how did we get here?


HEATHER -  Honey, it has something to do with this class…


STEVE -  I can figure that one out…


MICHAEL – And we’re all going out with the person we’re here with…


JEREMY -  Not us…we just, are like, you know, friends..


MICHAEL -  But you used to..     


JEREMY -  (Reluctant to admit0  Yeah…


DONNA -  Forget how we got here, I’d like to know how we get out of here…


BRITTANY -  Maybe we can build like a time machine…


JEREMY – Another great idea..


DONNA  – Hey, leave her alone, at least she’s trying…


MICHAEL -  If this is some kind of time warp-


            (The others all go 0000-oooh together)


MICHAEL – (Ignores them)  Then the key is in some type of Einsteinian theory


JEREMY -  Because he worked with time space continuum…


MICHAEL – Right…


JEREMY -  So are you a math geek?


MICHAEL -  I guess…


JEREMY -  So what kind of computer do you have?


MICHAEL -  I can’t afford one of those…they’re like $3000!


STEVE -  Computer?  You mean like the one they showed us on campus when we went

for the game?  That’s a whole building!


JEREMY -  Not anymore…


(He shows him his laptop and the others are impressed, especially Steve and Heather.)


JEREMY -  (Gets excited)  Hey, I’ve got an idea…


            (He opens the laptop and starts to type)


JEREMY -  We can google our names and maybe figure out what’s happening…


BRITTANY -  That’s so not going to work…


JEREMY -  Why not?


BRITTANY -  Electric things never work in a time warp!  Everyone knows that!


JEREMY – Yeah, right… maybe electricity doesn’t work, but the Internet still

does…here I am… Parents -  Donna and Luke Stevens…born….Jeremy Alan Stevens….three first names, that’s my mom’s bright idea…


            (When Jeremy says the name, everyone laughs except Donna)


JEREMY - Yeah, it’s all here….


BRITTANY -  Do me!  Do me!


JEREMY -  (Ha more than one meaning for him)  Ok…..Brittany

Richfield…..parents….Thomas and Cindy…..there you are…1544 West Ridge South…Apt. 327….


DONNA -  (Quiet)  Can you look me up?


JEREMY -  Sure, anyone…. Yeah, for a minute I was nervous when you said your name

was Donna, but….


DONNA -  Donna Basinger….my parents were Edna and Steve Basinger….


JEREMY -  (Stops, shaken)  Basinger?


STEVE -  (Doesn’t get it)  Hey, my last name’s Basinger…


HEATHER – (Starting to get it)  Edna and Steve Basinger?
