Sometimes it’s easy to see the world as your own personal sinking ship. It’s way easier to look into our own whirlpool than look out at what’s going on with others. I don’t care about them. Why should I? They’re not like me. They’re wrong.

In this one-act middle school vignette play, characters come face-to-face with the fact that there are other people in their boat. Some are different. Some only seem different.

Who will learn to paddle together? Who will spin in circles? Who will realize we’re all in the same boat and we always have been?

This is a vignette play! What is a Vignette Play?
