Play Synopsis:

Josh is a jokester who enjoys running track and creeping his classmates on Facebook. Despite minor insecurities, life is good–until somebody starts an anonymous social media campaign against him. Josh finds it difficult to deal with the embarrassment and humiliation. Suddenly, day-to-day stresses of family life and school start to overwhelm Josh, as he wrestles with his growing anxiety. Through open and supportive facilitation, this play leads students to discuss what Josh and others in the play can do to deal with anxiety.
