New Play: Censorbleep by Lindsay Price

Written by Craig Mason

The Bleep Bleep Girls are the greatest group in school. They know what’s best for you. They know what you should say and how you should behave. And today they’re going to show you a great skit. Perfectly clean, and one hundred percent bleeped. And you’re going to like it.

What’s the matter? Don’t you want to be a good person? Don’t you want to do the right thing? Don’t you want to be bleeped?

You better be careful. People with independent thoughts get dealt with.

Censorbleep, our newest issue-play is now available. As always, the home page for Censorbleep has lots and lots and lots of free sample pages for you to enjoy.

The play, set in a high school, is about censorship. It’s about what happens when censorship is taken too far; when independent thought is frowned upon in favour of obedience; when robotic acceptance is favoured over humanity.

Special thanks goes out to Karen Loftus and her students at St. Cloud High School in Florida. They participated in the first workshop of the show. They also earned an “Excellent” ranking for the premiere production at the District 11 One-Act Festival.
