  1. Boid & Oskar

    Boid & Oskar

    By Elizabeth Wong.

    Product Code: BA7000

    • Comedy | Drama | Tragedy
    • Elementary School | Middle School | High School
    • 2m., 2w. (plus many gender-neutral ensemble roles; may be done with 3m., 3 w. with doubling.)
    • 45 min.
    Inspired by Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince,this play is a hip, humorous and heartwarming parable about sacrifice and the lessons of true friendship. Prince Oskar is the spirit of a shiny, red, classic Corvette convertible—without a care in the world. But, placed as a monument high above the city, he alone sees the suffering below—a young girl conflicted by feelings of inferiority, a young boy without a home living in the streets, a writer who has lost the desire to write. With the help of a wise-cracking sparrow named Boid, the prince makes it his mission to help the townspeople. Learn More

    Everyman in the Circus of Life is a contemporary retelling of Everyman that combines the fun and skills of circus performance with the exploration of one of the great dramas of the medieval world. All the characters remain, but they have become figures in a circus: Death is the ringmaster; Worldly Possessions a juggler; Strength a weight lifter, for example. The script also includes the original Everyman to make it accessible to the modern reader, as well as rehearsal activities and games. Learn More
