Monster Problems

Monster Problems

by Lindsay Price

Starting high school can be nerve-wracking and problem-filled. Am I going to fit in? Am I going to be popular? Will I have the right reputation? What if I do something that ruins the rest of high school?

Olivia, Sam and Brooke are overwhelmed. They think about these problems all day, every day to the point that things are getting rather monstrous. They are going to have to deal with their problems or risk being consumed. Vampires, Zombies, and Snakes oh my! What happens when problems get the best of you?

This play was designed for a high school class to perform for middle school students and would be an excellent “intro to high school” project. Or use it in your middle school class as a tool for the transition into high school.
