Friends and Family – Teen Drama Script



In this teen drama script, new kids at the school and siblings Devin and Mel are forced to spend every other Friday afternoon following school with siblings Charlie and Anna while waiting for their mom to pick them up. The sets of siblings start as strangers but grow closer over the course of five different times together. They learn about themselves and each other while exploring the differences and similarities between friends and family. They also learn that some kids have had to deal with pretty bad things that have happened to them and sometimes their friends do become very important to them, almost like family.
