PEARL OF WISDOM cover image
There is a school, the Weeping Willow Middle School. Four kids that are not friends and actually have no friends, gather on broken down steps leading to nowhere. They are required by the school counselor to form a club, which they do, a rather unorthodox comedy club called the 2 Steppers Comedy. Pearl is selected to head this self-help group, a rather unorthodox group. The story is of the success, fears and problems of this group which creates its own language and acts out the kids' fantasies as they experience individual flashbacks, while attempting to create performances. I give this script 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 to 18. Reviewed by Juror #11.

As the self-appointed head of her school's new 2-Steppers Comedy and Counseling Club, 12-year-old Pearl cuts a commanding presence. Under the noses of faculty, staff, parents, and cliques, Pearl assembles her angst-ridden peers into an unofficial group of humorists, who pan for proverbial comedy gold in the hills and valleys of middle school. The 2-Steppers use wit to anticipate and navigate (as in, handle/maneuver/finesse/weather the storm of) every manner of tween annoyance . . . from mundane homework assignments to epic family feuds. There are plenty of missteps, but no worries! These are elemental to the kids' work-in-progress, public comedy
