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.

The play was easy for the students to understand, fun for them to play a variety of roles and a REALLY great fit for these particular middle school students.

You'll be hard pressed to find someone who isn't touched by this script and its characters. We used BOX as a student-directed play for my advanced 8th graders. It has its challenges, it's touching, and it's very real-to-life. I cannot recommend this enough to any director or group considering it.

We had a fun time putting on this production and received much good feedback about how our audience appreciated the message.
