Senior Class

(Comedy, a one-act play)
Two older men meet for lunch to decide their grandson's college; one opts for Stanford and the other for Santa Clara.

Two characters, one set, present day.

Andrew, 70s, from Stanford, opinionated.
Matt, 70s, from Santa Clara, opinionated.


Two older men reveal class differences in their choices of a college for their grandson, a math genius. Andrew prefers Stanford (“Why not give him the best?”), but Matt prefers Santa Clara, his old college. In a phone call they learn that their grandson is receiving a full scholarship to his first choice: Nebraska University. The men are stunned, realizing they have become irrelevant — even invisible. They try to flag down a waiter for another drink but aren’t seen.
