Foursquare • a Ten-minute play • TYA

a ten-minute play by Eric Samuelsen

Slightly amended from its appearance in the longer play, BUMPS, this play about the social order of a playground, along with the attendant bullying, presents a microcosmic view of elementary school life. The roles can be played by any aged actor from 5th grade through young adults, even college-aged actors could tour this to young audiences. This is a unique chance for Elementary- through Middle School-aged performers to present something to their peers in a very short, non-threatening, 10-minute format.

NOTE: This play is also the middle section of a longer play called, BUMPS, which expands on the themes explored here and brings a surprising twist of a conclusion for young audiences.
