Wait Wait Bo Bait

by Lindsay Price

Waiting... Waiting... Waiting... What are you waiting for, right now?

Christmas to come? The phone to ring? Class to be over? The man of your dreams? The line to move? The answer? To be yelled at for setting a toilet on fire?

We all have to wait. How long will you? Could you wait all day, or is it killing you? Are you staring at the phone, the line, the door, a clock? A watched clock never boils you know...

Praise for Wait Wait Bo Bait

Doug Parks
Parkersburg South High School
It's my second time directing it and we had a great time. We were selected to take it on to our state competition! This is my first year as the director of the program at PSHS and I couldn't be happier.
Lisa Evans
Fennimore Middle and High School
It was well accepted by the student body and the middle school and high school audience found it entertaining and interesting. It was able to be performed with a minimum of props and set pieces.
Deborah McKie
Phoenix Theatre
This play was great fun to work with from start to finish. It was easy to split up into pieces that needed more attention and easy to set. One audience member commented that they thoroughly enjoyed the vignette style versus a linear plot. Wonderfully simple to direct and set in the short period of time we had to pull the show together!

by Lindsay Price

In this one-act middle school vignette play, characters come face-to-face with the fact that there are other people in their boat. Some are different. Some only seem different.

A middle school vignette play about the boxes we find ourselves in.

This vignette play explores the beats, pauses, and neverending silences in conversation. An excellent class project with parts for everyone.


by Bradley Hayward

A silly comedy about how the misuse of apostrophes are ruining the lives of students. Flexible casting, audience participation, and fun staging.
