A playwright named Susan Rubin strides into Canoga Park High School, steeling herself for what lies ahead. She has a track record to maintain. No excuse-spouting, class-ditching teenagers, no matter how desperate their circumstances, are going to keep her from reaching her goal: In 12 weeks, each of the three dozen 10th-graders she's about to confront will turn in a full-length play.

Thank you for the wonderful article "A Shocking Lyricism" (Aug. 27). As the administrator of the Playwrights in the Schools program, I'm very proud of the talented and imaginative student writers at Canoga Park High School, and of playwright-teacher Susan Rubin, who refuses to allow a single student to slip through the cracks. A.S.K. Theater Projects makes this program available to schools free of charge. Five schools from the L.A. area are participating, including Westchester, Venice, King-Drew, and Monterey high schools.

Susan Rubin's "Mysteries in a Silver Box," an Indecent Exposure Theatre Company production at Los Angeles Theatre Center's Theatre 4, tries hard to subvert the English drawing-room mystery genre with a comic flair, but it's mostly a flaccid piece that fails to engage or excite.

Susan Rubin's musical about four breast cancer sufferers at the L.A. Theatre Center, titled "Club Termina," could have been subtitled "Female Bonding in the Afterlife." Set in a kind of limbo--with booze, no less--the story skitters surrealistically among topics such as cancer, abuse, discrimination, mysticism and the importance of family. Old hands at this after-death stuff, Marilyn (Denise Dowse) and Trudy (Beverly Leech) rehearse a nightclub act in a murky cellar cabaret.
