El Perdido (The Lost One)

by José Casas

About the Play

Drama. 10-12 minutes. 1 male, 1 any gender. Suitable for high school and older performers, and middle school and older audiences. 

El Perdido (The Lost One) is also available as part of Pieces of Mind: Ten Plays about Mental Health for Teens, a collection that may be produced in any order (and with any plays left out).


Boy Wonder "El Perdido" is tired of the great responsibility that accompanies great power, a great power he never asked for. That—plus the responsibility of being a role model to his community—has pushed him to his limits. So he gets lost, literally. But he can't stay missing forever, and when an agent sent by the League arrives to retrieve him, will the struggling superhero return to the fold? Or will he hang up the cape for good?
