    Hi there,

    Wondering if you have recommendations for 3 Person Scenes. Ideally the scenes would be age appropriate (teens-20s) and right now I am doing a film/tv unit but plays would work, as well.

    Really appreciate any suggestions!

    A scene that could be fun and start a film study would be The Tarantino Variation.  Another scene that is fun is Playwriting 101: The Rooftop Lessons.

    Hey Jordan!

    Hope all is well at Windward. I've used the following for three students:

    Vanities (the cheerleader scene)
    The Children's Hour (Peggy, Evelyn, Mary - I usually cut Rosalie unless you want 4)
    Words Words Words (David Ives)
    The Marriage Proposal (Chekhov)
    Almost Maine (the scene with Villian)
    The Philadelphia (David Ives)
    Proof (Hal, Claire and Catherine)
    Reasons to be Happy (Carly, Steph and Greg)
    Ballerinas (Don Nigro)

    Best wishes!

    Three Favorite scenes both 2M 1W:
         Drama: Vivat, Vivat Regina!  by Robert Bolt (I think)
         Comedy:  Star Spangled Girl by Neil Simon (If you can get the rights)
                          Odd Couple by Neil Simon - the characters are a bit older
