What will be her dreadful fate
When the trumpet sounds the call
For those who stand against the state
Must first learn how to fall.
Possible expulsion, expulsion, expulsion.
Agatha is a girl who stands up for her beliefs, regardless of the consequences. As student council president at Thebes High, she vigorously defends a student who is unfairly punished. Based on her actions, she could be expelled and lose an important scholarship.
Set in a modern-day high school, the play translates the original Greek chorus into a fantastic ensemble opportunity.
Characters in this play are currently identified as male or female. Directors are welcome to assign any gender (binary or non-binary) to any character and modify pronouns accordingly.
Lindsay Price talks about the play.
We did Agatha Rex this past month for Northshore Networks Youth Theatre. Thank you thank you thank you for such a wonderful script, the kids shone! They did a terrific job with the play. We performed at our premiere Performing Arts Center here in Bothell, WA and it was phenomenal.
I've been doing youth shows since 1990, this is one of the best scripts Iâve ever had the pleasure of producing and you can quote me on that.
I've been recommending your shows and Theatrefolk to many of my fellow teachers.
We're looking at another of your scripts for this next year for a smaller all girl crew, I can't wait to read it!
