A Page Play is the culminating presentation of our 10-week Playwriting Program in which professional actors perform the students’ original play with script’s in hand, while the students take the stage to demonstrate how they collaboratively developed the play using improvisation and writing exercises.
Our students’ Page Play this year is titled: Fear, Family, and Finding Acceptance!
Kris, a transgender teen and child of adoption, feels misunderstood and ostracized by their family and peers. As a way of escape, Kris retreats into the fantasy world of a fairytale book left to them by their biological mother thats tells the story of peaceful genderless gummy people. After discovering a secret hidden in the book, Kris runs away in search of the gummy people and a home where they can feel accepted, but in the end discovers their true home and acceptance was closer than they thought.
