Plays on Parade!

These plays have been written to be performed outside and from a distance. The actors do not get close to each other! Pieces range in tone and style: An epic battle between a couple of rowdy germs and hand sanitizer, friends exchanging bread and coping strategies, a pair of dinosaurs facing down the end of an era, a new couple's first (but socially-distant) non-Zoom date... In total, there are twelve fun...
These plays have been written to be performed outside and from a distance. The actors do not get close to each other! Pieces range in tone and style: An epic battle between a couple of rowdy germs and hand sanitizer, friends exchanging bread and coping strategies, a pair of dinosaurs facing down the end of an era, a new couple's first (but socially-distant) non-Zoom date... In total, there are twelve fun, weird, short plays and monologues to choose from!

I originally envisioned these plays being performed in community neighborhoods like a parade - with the actors driving to selected stopping points where each short play/monologue has its moment. Then actors get back in their cars and move on to the next stopping point to perform for the audience on that street. People could watch from their lawns, all socially distant and safe! How fun! BUT - that's not the only creative way to get theatre out of the box and into your community. These pieces could be performed as drive-up theatre (like a drive-in movie) or in any other number of creative ways. The essential thing is: Have fun with a new performance space/style! Be safe! And select as many of the pieces in this collection as works for you. Also, don't be afraid to incorporate some dance numbers - socially distant of course - or other fun performances. Does someone in your company juggle? Eat fire? Are they a contortionist? Create as many non-acting acts as works for you/your company and have fun bringing theatre to your community!

**These are all brand new pieces. I am happy to workshop any of them as needed with your company!**
