Like A Knife

by Michelle Tyrene Johnson

About the Play

Drama. 9-12 minutes. 3 females, 1 male. Suitable for middle school and older. 

Like A Knife is also available as part of All of Us: A Celebration of BIPOC Voices, a collection that may be produced in any order (and with any plays left out).


Three teens are about to graduate, but not from school. When they were new souls, Gloria Oya Decima chose their incarnations. As they have grown, it's become time to pick their next lives for themselves. But with an infinity of possibilities extending before them, choosing isn't easy. And when teenage soul Bella desperately wants to help heal the world of bigotry, who—or what—should she become?
