Martina: Lost and Found
Martina: Lost and Found
"A treasure to parents and educators searching for a way to make sense out of the confusion all children face." —St. Louis Magazine
By R.N. Sandberg.

Cast: 3m., 4w., 6 either gender (2m., 3w. with doubling). Martina is an almost teenager who knows her life is simply the worst. Her face is breaking out. Her hair is monstrous. Her life is unfair. Her world is full of pressures, boundaries and contradictions. When she slams the door to her room and yells that she wants everybody to get out of her life, her "wish" is granted. Martina's waking nightmare journey brings her face to face with scary street people, a gang of raucous crows, a mythic makeover witch and other monstrous figures grown large out of her everyday life. Originally conceived and premiered by Metro Theater Company under the title Frankenstein's Children, the play is based on interviews with kids 10 to 18 years old. It is guided by the fact that Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein as a teen who had run away from home to escape to a new, better life, and that in her book, Frankenstein's "child" is a violent, intelligent, vulnerable, misunderstood monster. Martina: Lost and Found is a fantastical, realistic whirlwind about confronting fears and important choices to set a course of growth and responsibility. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 65 minutes.
