About the Play
Dramedy. 60-70 minutes. 3-13 females, 1-9 males (4-16 performers possible). Suitable for high school and older performers, and middle school and older audiences.
All of the plays in this collection may be performed or used in competition on their own (individual listings coming soon), and any number of them may be used together in any order or combination.
Plays include To the Rescue; Rules for Toasting Marshmallows; Romancing the Tombstone; Hook, Line and Sinker; Wax Fruit; and Challenge Accepted.
What do you do when you're all dressed up with nowhere to go—except the school "costume" party? Or when your friend whisks you away to the cemetery to brew a love potion? Or when you've still got to reel in a date to the dance, not to mention the fish at the marina? As they navigate high school life in boatyards, graveyards and elsewhere in the great (or not so great) outdoors, the teens in these six short plays find themselves exploring unfamiliar territory—all the while learning that sometimes it's okay to wander off the beaten path to discover where you need to go.
