    as in modern plays

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) They sometimes play games as in high school.

    meaning: They sometimes play games the way high school students do.

    2) He satirizes social norms as in modern plays.

    meaning: He satirizes social norms the way they are satirized in modern plays.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
