1-Act play for a youth cast. 2M (20's) 1F (20's) 1F (young ) 45 minutes

SYNOPSIS: Mark and Jason are two 24 year old website whiz-kids working for Surprising Gifts, an internet-based toy and gift company. They are having to reorganise the database and website in time for the expected Christmas rush, but Jason isn't about to let that get in the way of taking out their assistant, Nicola.

So when a virus is discovered on the system, it's Mark who is left to try and eradicate it. While he's working, he is interrupted by a young school girl who announces that it was she who hacked into their computer system to give them the virus. The next day she reappears with an even more astonishing revelation, she has breached their firewall with an even more devastating virus, one that could potentially destroy their company. 

CHARACTERS in order of appearance:

JASON: A young webmaster, bright and but never particularly serious and doesn't want work to get in the way of his leisure life.

MARK: The same age as Jason, but more senior and takes life a lot more seriously.

NICOLA: Their assistant, always willing to please.

JESSICA: A twelve year old schoolgirl, pretty and perhaps quite slight, but with definite inner strength (can be played by an older girl, but must look young)
