IN TENTS – ONE ACT PLAY ABOUT BULLYING

It’s your typical high school camping trip, except not so typical. Forced to come up with an alternative trip due to budget cuts (little Jimmy only got a B in Lit and his daddy sued the school), our home room teacher has come up with a plan. Camping out in the cellar. Six students are chosen and put together for this assignment. Six students who have nothing to do with each other and who will have to get to know each other over the course of an evening. The students are free to leave at any time, but if they do, they fail the class. All they have is a tent (in a bag), a microwave, some microwave meals and some jars (for the necessary). How will they survive the night?

FRIENDS AND FAMILY – TEEN DRAMA SCRIPT

The sets of siblings start as strangers but grow closer over the course of five different times together.

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.
