Puzzle Pieces by Krista Boehnert mixes humour and and drama to help high school students explore teen issues through a series of monologues. Keigan Page‘s students at The American School in Vietnam performed the play and were able to truly connect with the characters they portrayed.
We launched a new senior level drama class this year called Advanced Performance Production. The purpose of this class was to become a theatre company. We are quite a small school, the class itself was only 6 students. With a student director we chose to perform Puzzle Pieces. The students connected with their roles in a way I have never seen high school students connect. The whole show was student run with the actors/director doubling as set designers, costumes, advertising etc. This was so important, it is not just about teen issues but speaks to people of all ages.
