FIVE Plays for Young Audiences by Joanna H. Kraus • Volume 8 Theatre for Young Audiences Series

by Joanna H. Kraus

A collection of FIVE plays that speak to young hearts and minds whether they are in school, in the home, or in the work force. These plays are about life and honor, about love and family, about the gifts of culture from around the world and right here at home. Click on the titles of the plays below to go to their webpage.

Written by Award Winner, Joanna H. Kraus over a span of nearly 50 years, her prolific career boasts many more plays, plus fiction novels, that deal with the timeless issues still facing our citizens and our society: Bullying, Adoption, Blended Families, Being Decent, Kind, and Loving, Tolerance, the Nature of Truth, Parenting, and Coming of Age.

Plays are usually only considered as art on the stage. But their message is also communicated through the page — the written word. Yes, you are not watching actors performing on a stage, but I would be willing to wager that the play will perform itself on the performance space of your mind — which can be a powerful venue. Our imaginations are the primary reasons we attend the theatre. They are also crucial to our reading of theatre — The Editor
