Everything in Jason's world is crazy. He's a loner, he can't concentrate in school, and--hardest of all--his mom recently passed away. Now he's the sole caregiver for his beloved dad, who is trying to cope with mental illness. Sounds heavy, but Jason makes a hero's journey to protect his dad. With the help of three new friends--outspoken Shelby, who becomes his crush; Zen political activist Pete; and Haze, who may be the most messed up of all--Jason finds himself in the midst of his most trying times. Based on National Book Award winner Han Nolan's novel, Crazy, this haunting, humorous, and highly theatrical play humanizes young people dealing with less than perfect families and celebrates the awesome power of friendship. For age 11 and up.
