I was in several plays in high school, including some with adult themes. In the play "Anything Goes" I took off my pants and stood in boxer shorts; instead of being ashamed or embarrassed, I look back on that moment as one of the best memories of my time in high school. The next year, the theater instructor chose Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath." After six weeks of intense rehearsal, we performed an excerpt as part of the promotion for the play. This excerpt contained the phrase "miserable sons of bitches," and some in the audience were offended. The play was cancelled, and I recall the emptiness afterward as one of the worst moments in high school. Let the kids read.
