Getting This Close – Award Winning play for High School



Danny Taylor is a senior in high school and has been in love with his best friend Emma for as long as he can remember. She is equally
interested in him, but neither knows because of the interference of their mutual friend Jessica (Who wants Danny to herself.)
Chronicling his final year in high school, Danny finds success, failure and endless frustration in his attempt to win the girl of his dreams.
