Same Room, Different Story

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.

Praise for Same Room, Different Story

MIchael Despars
Fullerton Union High School
This was exactly what my students needed in this moment. They spent so much time in their bedrooms during the pandemic that it was easy for them to tap into these characters and their stories. These are appropriate for a high school audience without being corny. Throughout the vignettes there are plenty of emotions for students to tap into.

Curtain Call Performing Arts Academy
The student could easily relate to this play which lead to some really genuine moments on stage. I love all the plays from Theatrefolk and will absolutely use them again in the future.
Miriam Climenhaga
Liberal High School
This play was perfect for giving kids an opportunity to try their hand at directing. Very flexible.
