Teen Plays


In this teen drama for high school, eight students who have nothing in common are sitting in detention on a Saturday run by the vice principal, Miss Blair. Although they are all so different from each other, they learn that they all do have something in common – each of them has a terrible secret; something bad has happened in their past which has brought them to this point. As they talk about the essay they have been set, “conformity” and the things that have happened to them, they come to the realization that conforming to life’s rules isn’t always for everybody. In order to move on, they need to accept the things that have happened to them because those things made them who they are today. A challenging play for high school drama class, loosely based on the hit movie, “The Breakfast Club.”

GREAT LAND – A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY – a two act drama romance

It’s the summer of 1977 in Chicago, USA.  Renata, who works at the local bar, coerces one of the regulars, Nicky into taking Danny, a disabled kid who works at the local bar as well and who is a die hard Elvis fan, to Graceland to meet the King himself. The play follows their journey from Chicago down to Graceland and their subsequent discovery that Elvis has recently passed away before Danny could meet him. They find that, although they did not get to meet The King, they have learned a lot more about themselves and each other along the way.
