It’s the topic of conversation among kids, pre-teens, teens, adults, parents: the potential connections and pitfalls of social media. Texting, Facebook, Twitter, Skype…it’s all there, at one’s fingertips: messages delivered at the speed of light. Yes, it can connect you, keep you up-to-date with friends and family and loved ones far away; but it can also, in the hands of the not-yet-mature or self-reflective, be a vehicle for gossip, rumor, innuendo, bullying and much more.

It’s a timely and complex topic, and one that the Highland High School English Department and Drama Club are ready to tackle in their upcoming, original play, Status Update (referring to Facebook).
