Villains Incorporated – Award Winning Teen Play

award winning teen play


Three high school students decide that they would like to make chaos out of the upcoming school Halloween Dance, in Villains Incorporated. Sounds like a typical tale of your average
teenage trouble-makers, right? Wrong! In this comedy, Nefarious, Nemesis and Notorious are just about as un-typical as three teenagers can get; you see they are villains. They were
“born” to create chaos; to nurture it, dote on it, watch it evolve and help it come to life! In fact disorder is such a firm part of their make-up that they would go as far as to be in cahoots with one Virtuous (quite literally, an upright – or uptight? school mate, who would like to lead them onto a more righteous path) in order to achieve their wickedness. In this play though, it isn’t the obvious guess at who learns the moral lesson but it definitely is the more fun choice.

One small step for juvenile delinquents, one giant leap for Villain-kind!

Villains incorporated received 3 Superior ratings out of three at the VBCPS One Act Play Festival in 2015. This is the highest rating possible.

Set: The scenes in this play may be staged simply or elaborately. The use of lighting is important, particularly in the mountain and forest scenes in order to suggest mood and the environment.

Complete polystyrene pillars, approximately 4 metres in height, were positioned in all scenes, but were moved Far L and R in the Eastern Pass and forest scenes to allow more access and space for the BIRDS and MOUNTAIN PEOPLE. Standing decorated hinged flats were used to suggest locations, but this is a matter of choice.
