Behind The Blue Door • a Ten-minute play

a ten-minute play by Eric Samuelsen

(Suitable for all groups)

A Prince/Knight in shining armor, his fair maiden, and Jesper the self-loathing Jester shifts back and forth from fantasy to nightmare, knights and dragons to Iraq, and back again. What are we willing to do to conquer the monsters in our lives? How can we ignore the fact that there are so many –– and that not all of them can be killed? Or that we even really know how?
