Posts Tagged The Fountain of Too Much Youth
I’ve got three one-minute pieces being produced in #NextGen, the youth version of the annual Gone in 60 Seconds festival of one-minute plays in New York.
Those pieces are: AN UNEXPECTED CHEESE PARTY (which is also being done in the adult version), THE FOUNTAIN OF TOO MUCH YOUTH, and THE LITTLE RED HEN THINKS BIG.
They’re being done June 12 at Brooklyn College.
AN UNEXPECTED CHEESE PARTY
Some mice found one of their fellows dead in a mousetrap. What to do, oh what to do? What else? Eat the cheese! Cast: Four, non-gender. Running time: One minute.
THE FOUNTAIN OF TOO MUCH YOUTH
An older couple drinks from the fountain of youth — but they drink too much, and of differing amounts, and so now she’s 16 and he’s 10. Cast: One teen-age girl, one pre-teen boy.
THE LITTLE RED HEN THINKS BIG
The Little Red Hen as a commodities broker. Cast: Three (one female, one male, one non-gender) or four (one female, two male, one non-gender.)
I have two pieces in the adult version — AN UNEXPECTED CHEESE PARTY and THERE ARE NO CELLPHONES IN SHAKESPEARE. So that makes five pieces in all in the New York leg of the festival. Plus I had two more done on the British side of the same festival: SLAM POETRY and THE ONLINE AFFAIR. So that makes seven!
