The Stories of Myth

by Marlie Kass

About the Play

Drama. 20-25 minutes. 2 females, 0-5+ any gender (2-7+ performers possible). Suitable for high school (and advanced middle school) and older performers, and middle school and older audiences.

Premiered at the Eugene O’Neill Young Playwrights Festival (Waterford, CT).


The circus has come to town...but Daisy Williams won't be there. The young socialite lives a secure, predictable life, and spending the night with a mysterious group of performers is not meant to be part of it. Then she meets Myth—an eccentric but charming member of the circus with an extraordinary way of seeing the world—and is enchanted by her tales of magic and adventure. Is this Daisy's chance to finally be the author of her own story? Winner of the New Voices One-Act Competition for Young Playwrights.

“Mysterious, Empowering and Utterly Charming.” - Sophia Chapadjiev, Director of Education, Eugene O’Neill Theater (Waterford, CT)

“A whimsical play...allows for an actor to 'feel' these characters as they perform and for an audience to connect with these characters as they watch them.” Lyric Stage Company of Boston First Page Festival Reviewers (Boston, MA)
