"Reading the Signs", by Richard Turtle, examines how literacy is a factor in the success of young people. This funny, fast-paced play gives us a look at the lives of young people, through their own eyes. The play is actually five plays which can either stand each on its own, or be joined into a fully-rounded one act theatre experience. Flexible casting. Complement the play with "Reading the Play", by Peter Moore, a series of drama exercices which illuminate the themes.
