Box

Box

by Lindsay Price

Sometimes we choose the way the world sees us. Black box - indestructible. Jewelry box - plain on the outside, shiny on the inside. Sometimes our box is defined by others - our parents, our friends, our enemies. A box built by others can feel small, confined, impossible.

How do we handle the boxes imposed upon us because of our gender? Our race? From peer pressure? From parent pressure? Do we have to live with our box for the rest of our lives? Can we change?

Box is a middle school vignette play with flexible casting. It can be expanded for a large cast or reduced to a cast of 10 with doubling. Excellent small scene and monologue opportunities.

Praise for Box

Amy Skalecki
Long Branch Middle School
This was awesome! The students truly connected with the material and the audience left with a great message!
Jesica Garrou
Greely Middle School
This play was perfect for a Zoom production with middle school kids who are literally in boxes- video boxes- discovering their personalities. It was enough of a challenge to feature some kids and easy enough for that kid that wanted a "small part to just try."
Heather Tate
Nichols Middle School
Our production of Box was by far the best ensemble work done by any group of students I've worked with. It was a wonderful combination of scenes and monologues that let each actor shine. The material was so relatable to the students that they were able to really connect to the characters and the audience enjoyed it so much.

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.
