Synopsis

Tracey Logan, a girl of 16, finds herself unexpectedly in a world where everyone is blue. Not only are all the other teenagers dressed in blue and have blue skin, but they have numbers instead of names. Tracey begins to ask some pointed questions, and it becomes obvious that they evolved through a period of time that was similar to our society. Tracey is told that she, too, must turn blue in order to fit into this blue society. She must decide whether to maintain her individuality and become an outcast or to turn blue and become accepted by the others. A story of the choices concerning conformity and individuality that we all must make, this play is written with two endings. The director may choose either to present to the audience. Whichever is chosen, many questions will certainly arise about a society that expects complete conformity from its members.

Customer Reviews

"The students enjoyed the show and message of the play. While in a global pandemic we were able to produce the show live stream which allowed our students the opportunity to still participate in theatre."
Review by Sherri Ansley, Griffin Middle School, Frisco, Texas
"My drama class of 30 is performing this for the middle school; because of such a large group with a wide variety of experience and talent, this was a perfect fit. Nice themes to discuss, too."
Review by Shannon Mallrich, Triad High School, Troy, IL
"It went exceptionally well. Very good material for a middle school audience."
Review by J. Blankenship, Canyon ISD, Canyon, Texas
"An excellent piece for adolescents, this play examines prejudice, peer pressure, fundamentalism, chauvinism, and ostracism. Science fiction is a great genre for issue-based plots."
Review by Kate Olena, Nichols Middle School, Buffalo, N.Y.
"This is an outstanding script with a strong message. My students felt that this play carried a great deal of meaning to people of all ages."
Review by Richard Pope, Waukegan High School, Waukegan, Ill.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"One bit of advice, if you are taking this into contest or perhaps even just in general, be advised that the double ending could be confusing to your audience if it is not mentioned in your playbill or announced prior to the show starting. Nothing to give away any plot, just to keep them from being confused when you get there! "
Tip by Eddie Holmes, Benbrook Middle/High School, Fort Worth, Texas
"Experiment with the make-up before the play. Allow at least an hour for applying make-up."
Tip by J. Blankenship, Canyon I.S.D., Canyon, Texas
"Perform both endings. There should be a speech between them to give time for the costume/make-up change."
Tip by Kate Olena, Nichols Middle School, Buffalo, N.Y.
