I'm literally doing all the work. I'm scriptng, directing, researching, designing and blocking our entire piece because neither of my other two group members care at all?
We haven't had a single rehearsal outside lessons because they never bother showing up (our exam is in 3 weeks and we got an E in our mock because I literally had to re-teach them the entire piece ON THE MORNING OF THE MOCK), heck I don't think we've even had one lesson where both of them has got their script. In lessons, they get distracted really easily, sometimes even in the middle of a run-through. If we rehearsed outside of lessons it wouldn't matter so much, but we never do because they're both always 'busy'.
They learn what sounds like their lines, but they paraphrase so what they're saying sounds good but doesn't actually make any sense. When I try and tell them that the meaning of the line is lost when they say it that way, they don't understand.
We're doing Dante's Inferno in a Berkoff Style but I'm the only one who understands the script's language and the only one who has a clue what the Berkoff theatre style is like, neither of them want to listen when I try to tell them that we CAN'T do things naturalistically because the exam unit is about Berkoff. They don't understand we're being graded on how well we apply Berkoff techniques to Inferno instead of 'how good our acting is' (says David, the boy who didn't even know the meaning of the word Tableaux - they literally teach you that in year 7 drama!!!).
I AM AT MY WITS END
I AM DOING EVERYTHING FOR THIS GROUP AND WE'RE STILL FAILING. NEITHER OF THEM CARE THAT WE GOT AN E BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT PULLING THEIR WEIGHT. I HAVE TRIED SO HARD TO DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO MAKE IT AS EASY AS POSSIBLE FOR THEM BUT I DO EVERYTHING FOR THEM.
If I don't get an A in this exam, I can't get an A* at the end of A2. If I don't get an A* by the end of A2, my chances of getting into drama school decrease (they're already slim because drama schools are so competetive). If I don't get into a drama school, I can't go into the career I've been training for since I was 9.
What do I do? I've been having panic attacks for like the past day.

Remind them that they will be spending their eternity in the Ninth Circle if they don't step up soon
