THE ASTOUNDING WORKS OF SIMON TROUT – HILARIOUS TEEN ONE ACT PLAY

When Karen Carter has yet another fight with her family and she storms into her room, the last thing she expects to find is a fully grown good looking guy sitting on her bed. After getting over the shock of this (and passing out a few times), she confronts him. It turns out that he is actually a magical creature, called a Sprite, but who is generally known as ‘Simon,’ whose power is to restore
balance to those who have called for help in this teen one act play.

He assures her that he can change her family to the way she would like them to be. This appeals and so he waves his magic hand over the unsuspecting family who are sitting down to dinner. A series of very funny identical scenes follow in which they are at first made more honest (doesn’t work), more loving (too much!) more
affectionate (OMG) and so on until they reach the inevitable
conclusion.
