Shakespeare has writer’s block. Nothing inspires him. The best he can come up with is “Now is the winter of our irritation!” Postcards from Shakespeare by Allison Williams is so much more than your typical Shakespeare spoof.

Same Room, Different Story

Production Tips for
Same Room, Different Story

by Claire Broome

A teenager’s bedroom is important. It’s a place to hide, to consider choices, to reveal. And sometimes, it’s a place to practice the periodic table. Stories can be found under the bed, in a suitcase, in a box that may or may not hold body parts…

Same Room, Different Story is the ideal high school play, perfect for a class project or drama club. This vignette play explores relationships and situations that speak to today’s teens in a variety of genres with flexible gender roles.

Tips from past Producers

This is a great project to break up students into teams. Have a tech class design the "bedroom" and select student director's who can direct each scene. Students can even wear their own clothes.
Would have liked to create notes for the students who attended for discussion after attendance. A meet and greet or question time after the play would be nice to help attendees better understand the issues being addressed.
