Synopsis

Here is a drama of adolescence, set amidst the color and movement of a ceremonial, primitive society. This play, especially written for a junior-high-school audience, deals with the coming-of-age rituals of a boy in a primitive culture. He is torn between the freedom of childhood and the pressures to assume adult responsibilities. His changing relationships are explored through dance and dialog with his uncle (the chief), the tribal medicine man, his best friend, and—most particularly—with his grandmother. It culminates in his bittersweet acceptance of the inevitable. Inspired by the works of Margaret Mead, this play is suitable to many production styles, from basic to elaborate. Whichever route is selected, the story of The Men's Cottage will mesmerize its young audience.
