Pandemic Pancake

by Lindsay Price

Pandemic Pancake asks the question: What now? Characters decide, for good and for ill, how they will respond to this evolving new world. Do they find hope? Do they shut down? Do they open doors? Do they strategize long-term? Or do they take it day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute?

We are no different than the characters in this play. We all must decide “what now?”

This play can be performed virtually, socially distanced or a hybrid of the two.

Praise for Pandemic Pancake

Joanna Edie
The Langley School
Pandemic Pancake was our first virtual play and it was exactly what we needed. The fact that every scene takes place on a video platform took away any pressure to create an in-person feel, or ask the audience to believe the actors were in the same room. The content was timely and meaningful. We laughed, we cried, we got major kudos from the school community.
