Artists at Play is proud to present Young Dumb Broke High School Kids by Nicholas Pilapil as part of our annual spring reading series on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 2:30 p.m.
Everything sucks for high school kids Bliss, Olivia, and Miles. Bliss is a dreamer who’s knocked up and knocked down, Olivia is a lover with no one to love her back, and Miles is an orphan who would kill to have a family. And together they sling back slushies, barf down chili cheese fries, and try to sort out their lives in the most dangerous ways. They’re unloved and fucked up and it’s whatever.
