The three scripts picked for this year's showcase of one-acts by Chicago high schoolers endear themselves by means of gangling honesty. In Gabriella Bonamici's The Nowhere People, a widower finds unexpected solace in the company of a ghost-hunting neighbor. Roller Coaster by Gixiang Lee is a predictable but funny comedy about mismatched strangers stuck on a ride. And Kat Blackburn's Deliver Me From Evil packs on the melodrama, reeling through abuse, cutting, and suicide like a morbid View-Master. The adult cast bring energy and artistry to the sometimes flat plays, so you don't have to be a teacher or relative to enjoy the show. --Keith Griffith
