Agatha Rex

Synopsis:
Agatha is a girl who stands up for her beliefs, regardless of the consequences. As student council president at Thebes High, she vigorously defends a student who is unfairly punished. Based on her actions, she could be expelled and lose an important scholarship. Set in a modern-day high school, the play translates the original Greek chorus into a fantastic ensemble opportunity.

Alice

Synopsis:
A one-act adaptation of the famous novel by Lewis Carroll. Alice follows the white rabbit down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where she meets a cornucopia of strange creatures. A caterpillar gives advice, the Mad Hatter and March Hare are always at tea time, and the Queen of Hearts continually cries, "Off with her head!" The Cheshire Cat says everyone in Wonderland is mad, and therefore Alice must be too. Has Alice lost her head? Only the Cheshire Cat knows for sure.

Among Friends and Clutter

Synopsis:
Among Friends and Clutter presents a montage of characters who experience the most important relationships in life: friends, family, and love.

betweenity

Synopsis:
We've all been there. The awkward pause. The silence where you just can't think of something to say. The space in-between words where nothing is said and yet so much is spoken. The state of being between. This vignette play explores the beats, pauses, and never-ending silences in conversation. The girl who tries to tell her best friend she wants to date him. The boy who creates the wrong kind of pause. The sister who is dealing with the silent treatment. The guy who wants to confess but can't open his mouth. The daughter who doesn't want to talk because talking makes her remember. An excellent class project play with parts for everyone at all levels with a great technique exploration. How do you act in a pause?

Drum Taps

Synopsis:
The poems in Drum Taps represent Walt Whitman's firsthand account of the Civil War. See the words, the emotion, the blood come to life in this theatrical adaptation. This is not your traditional readers theatre or poetry recital. This is flesh and bone words breathed to their fullest humanity. This is struggle and pain. This is confusion and contradiction. This is war.

Emotional Baggage

Synopsis:
This is the most unique play we sell. It's based solely on action and has no dialogue. Suitable for performance and in-class work, the play focuses on non-verbal storytelling through mask and movement. Six strangers meet in a train station. Instead of luggage, they all carry their "emotional baggage." They must confront themselves and one another. Everybody carries emotional baggage with them. What's yours?

Power Play

Power Play
A gunshot is heard. Which of the five characters did it and why? Was it the Goth girl? The football star? The super-intelligent geek? High school violence is a hot media topic, but it is too often simplistically portrayed by putting teens into tidy categories and pointing at the outsider. Power Play explores the realities and the stereotypes of high school violence - not just the brutal shock of the school shooting, but also verbal harassment and bullying. Violence is about power. So is high school.

Pregnancy Project, The

Synopsis:
The project seems simple enough. Everyone (girls AND boys) wears a pregnancy belly to simulate what if feels like to be pregnant. Bonus points go to students who wear the belly 24/7. Easy, right? It's not as if it's real. Lucy, who seems to live the ideal life, isn't finding the project so easy. She's a week late. And every day that passes is another day when life is far from ideal. Each member of the ensemble gets a monologue in this issue-driven play. No statistics. No preaching. Just well-drawn characters and an engaging story.

How many of us love or hate our hometown? Maybe its both at the same time. The characters in Somewhere, Nowhere face a dilemma: do they stay close to home at the end of high school, or do they get as far away as possible? What if they want to do both at the same time? What then?

This Phone Will Explode at the Tone

Synopsis:
The phone. The most beautiful, the most wonderful communication device in all the world. Or is it... Without the phone there'd be no obscene callers, no chatty Cathys who won't shut up, telemarketers who think the sun rises and sets with carpet cleaning, no awkward silences, no pressure to have an interesting phone message with all the bells and whistles. And there'd be no Harry. Poor Harry. Poor sweet desperate Harry, desperately trying to get up the nerve to call a girl and ask her to the dance. Don't hang up on Harry. Don't you dare! Don?t do it!

Tick Talk

Synopsis:
The teenagers in Tick Talk have a lot to say, but no way to say it. Most characters are limited to only ONE WORD for the whole play. A fascinating challenge for actors: What happens when a character has just one word to express hopes, fears, and frustrations? What if they have something terribly important to say but can't? They'd better find a way soon: Time is running out.
