by Mark St. Germain

Full-length Comedy

When a neurotic, amateur actress leads her community college class of terrified adults to compete in their county’s First Annual Public Speaking Competition, their cross-currents, tongue-tied quirks and foibles escalate as the pressure builds.

“The fear of public speaking is, for most people, greater than the fear of death. As such, this fear is a topic that is a great subject for comedy, as demonstrated by Mark St. Germain’s new play PUBLIC SPEAKING 101.”
—Berkshire Onstage.

“St. Germain has written this play for its humor in reality and gets it absolutely right. A new comedy is a good thing to have.”
—The Berkshire Edge.
