Anxiety is Orange

Anxiety is Orange

by Lindsay Price

Colours can be symbolic. Red is fiery. Purple is royal. Blue is calming. Sometimes, colours can take on too much meaning. I can’t date you - you wear wenge! He sent yellow flowers! Orange gives my brother anxiety!

Join the characters in this vignette play as they navigate the world, each other, and the greens, greys, blues, reds, pinks, yellows, and oranges around them. Does orange make you anxious?

Praise for Anxiety is Orange

Chelsye Ginn
Switzerland Point Middle School
This vignette-style is divided into monologues and small group scenes, so it is easy to rehearse, even if you are missing a student or two, and allows you to showcase many performers.
Victoria Wittmaier
Warrensburg Middle School
It went well and we enjoyed the vignette approach.
Robin Walsh
The students loved this play - I feel like it allowed them to express themselves in a safe environment. While doing reflections it opened up the floor to conversations about real-world issues and we channeled those emotions into the performance. It was great all around and I would love to do it again next year.
