Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep — play

Posted on Dec 28, 2017 in Award Winners, Child and Youth Audiences, Family Audience Plays and Musicals, Latest, Monologs, New Releases, Plays, Short Plays

by Jerry Walker (A must for any group – professional, amateur and educational, performing for families and teens. A perfect play for High Schools and Youth Theatres.) They are called the best four years of our lives…and they are, but that four year trek is also dangerous and confusing. You will find all of the things that young people, especially high school students, need to know, want to ask, get stressed-out about and complain about. Between the familiar items of teen angst and adolescence will come those moments of pleasant memory, deep identity, shocking surprise, and utter devastation, as your onstage ‘child’ reaches out for comfort, help, direction––approval; wanting to belong to something/someone. The scenes and monologues in this on-target theatrical, will have you laughing one second and crying for …well, a considerable length of time. The play is...

a two act play by Linda Britt (An evening of five short plays inspired by the paintings of Norman Rockwell) (Perfect for Professional, Amateur, College/University groups) A somewhat contemporary take on Americans and American life, inspired by five classic Norman Rockwell paintings: “Girl At The Mirror”, “Thanksgiving”, “Playbill”, “The Interloper”, and “Attic Memories”. The playwright has an uncanny knack for seeing inside the people in the paintings and pulling out contemporary issues, struggles, and observations, that could very well have been in the mind of the painting’s subjects, and which most certainly live today in our minds, as well as being from the mind, brush and heart of one of America’s greatest artists. These five short plays are alternately funny, touching and truthful, in an emotional sense, and serve to remind us of the good things that make us...
