We Are Masks

We Are Masks

by Lindsay Price

We all wear a mask. Some hide for good reasons. Some for self preservation. Even when you’re ready to take off your mask, it’s a hard thing to do. What will happen when the world sees who you really are?

Four teenagers wear a variety of masks: Imposter Foster. Persona Paloma. Nolan No-Try. Macy Maintains. Each has to make a choice – show the world their true self, or stay behind their mask. Who will reveal themselves? Who will stay in the shadows?

Praise for We Are Masks

Bobby Zupkofska
The MMAS Academy
The moment I first read We Are Masks, I fell in love with the script. It does what good theatre is suppose to do: make you think. My students really enjoyed their time with the play and it made them think of the masks we all wear in our day to day life. Altogether a really enjoyable show and one I will definitely come back to down the line.

Boat

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.

Jane wants to break out of her box. Colour cows green and the sky purple. She wants a deep poetic journey into something. The problem is she has no idea where to start.
