From Found Theatre:

A tongue-in-cheek tribute to fresh-faced teacher flicks such as "To Sir, With Love," and troubled teen dramedies like "The Breakfast Club," "Traffic School" is an original Found Theatre comedy written and directed by John Sturgeon. With newly minted instructor Boyd Beasley at the helm of a questionable traffic school located in a former Taco Bell, the play crams all of the drama and comedy of a year of high school into a single day, teaching us what can happen in a world where people are too dumb to know they can take traffic school online.

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
