3 female, 1 male, up to 13 "either." Flexible casting by gender and race. 14 speaking roles (or fewer); 1-2 non-speaking. Optional school drum line. Simple set. In a dystopian future United States, a high-school hate crime sets off a revolution against bigoted, totalitarian rule. Produced at the Young Players, Benton, Ark., March 2019. “City” was work-shopped with two Arkansas high schools and with the Young Players. Features a powerful teenage heroine, a strong character of color and a provocative fight scene. The play is perfect for play festivals, and also in-school performances, where discussions can follow the play.
