Scenes from a Quarantine

Scenes from a Quarantine

by Lindsay Price

Did you know COVID-19 likes to be known as Co? And what if Romeo and Juliet missed their marriage by one day because of a stay-at-home order? Would they still make it?

You know all the people in Scenes From a Quarantine. The person who thinks quarantine is going to be easy. The person whose life changed overnight. The person who thinks hairdressers are an essential service. The person who just wants to use class meetings to talk.

This vignette style play can be easily performed using an online platform and has a variety of scenes to address all student skill levels.

Praise for Scenes from a Quarantine

Natasha McGregor
Gosforth Amateur Dramatic Society
The kids immediately engaged with the stories being told and with the script itself. They filmed each other and directed one another’s scenes and really enjoyed every moment of the show. The end result was awesome.
Tammy Johnson
Moody ISD
We did this play as a mix of on-stage scenes and recorded scenes. We played the recorded scenes between the on-stage scenes on a screen in front of the closed curtains so that we could change the set behind the curtains. Everyone loved it!
Jan Thrasher
Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy
Everyone at our school LOVED this play! It was the perfect piece for our virtual setting. Our cast and audience really connected with this piece. Students were able to work independently in breakout groups on the scenes, making our rehearsals super-efficient. I cannot say enough how grateful I am for knowing that I can always find relevant and engaging scripts on your website.
