What Happened at the Mud Puddle

by Tara Meddaugh

About the Play

Comedy. 25-30 minutes. 8 females, 4 males. Suitable for middle school and older.


Taylor and Chloe have been friends for years. At least they were—until Taylor suddenly and mysteriously throws an over-the-top yacht party the same day as Chloe's birthday party. Despite Taylor's reputation as the meanest girl in school, no one wants to turn down the chance to sample an extravagant candy station, dance to the live music of the hottest new band or receive a pricey swag bag. But before the boat even leaves the dock, Taylor turns on her guests, moving in on Jasmine's crush, telling Ronni to "walk the plank!" and humiliating the new girl, Amanda. Will the lure of the luxurious yacht with its own Ferris wheel be enough to keep the guests from walking? Or will they abandon ship for nicer ground at Chloe's backyard ice cream party? Loyalties and friendships will be tested in this play for an ensemble cast, and of course, someone will be pushed into a mud puddle.
