La Caja by Lindsay Price - Theatrefolk

» A Spanish translation of Box. «

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?

La Caja is a middle school vignette play with flexible casting. It can be expanded for a large cast. Excellent small scene and monologue opportunities.

Spanish translation by Angelika Menendez.
