TEST TIME is a play written by me and used in a Cutlure Studies through Drama class to stimulate discussion about what one should do in an academic environment if one feels that one is being dealt with unfairly. It comes from Ten MORE Plays for the ESL/EFL Classroom. This book and the earlier Ten Plays for the ESL/EFL Classroom may be purchased through Carlisle Publications ( All the twenty plays in this series are built to provide classroom instruction on integrating pronunciation practice and cultural discussion with the work of rehearsal and performance.
