About the Play

Drama. 35-45 minutes. 5 females, 5 males. Suitable for high school and older.


When a high school newspaper receives an advertisement for an LGBTQ+ bookstore, the student staff heads to press—until their faculty advisor forbids it on grounds of indecency. Outraged Editor-in-Chief Lauren rallies her editorial staff, the bookstore owner and even a Washington Post reporter to protest this act of censorship, but will they be able to stand up to the school administration? Featuring non-linear storytelling and intimate insights into the journalistic process, Press is based on the author's own true story.
