The plays contained in SCT's second Smith and Kraus anthology are appropriate for professional and non-professional companies. Though all SCT productions feature adult Equity actors, community and school groups across the company have found these plays excellent choices for young actors.

The collection represents a variety of styles and themes; but the thread that ties the anthology together is the high quality of writing, so well deserved by young audiences.
