University of Nevada Las Vegas Playwrights. Compiled and introduced by Ann McDonough
These ten short plays in large, easy-to-read type offer perspectives on relationships and romance, plus how to get along with others in intergenerational situations. Copy the scripts and use with ease! Limited quantity available.
There are different perspectives on relationships and romance, with plays like Paper Walls by Jenny Laird, The Meadow by Scott Allan Pardue, and The Green Spaniard by Ralph Tropf. There are several intergenerational pieces that depict the strength of older women coming to the aid of daughters and granddaughters, such as The Birthday Kids by Robert Dame and Home Furnishings by Tim Byrne.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of using these plays in an acting class or in performance is that there is a wide range of challenging roles for older adults. Older adults are shown in real-life situations that portray challenges and pain, with the strength to hold families together.
These short plays will present new challenges, and hopefully new beginnings for your Senior Theatre!
