1.  Play that takes place in a gym?

Posted 11 days ago

I'm searching high and low for our play next year and have just found out that our musical Spelling Bee will be in the same space following it only 2 weeks later.  Anyone know a play that takes place in a school or gymnasium/auditorium?  I'm trying to repurpose as much of the set as possible. I originally wanted to do a modern 90m play for a small (8-10) cast but am open to any suggestions.

One play that comes to mind is The Sparrow, which is available from Dramatic Publishing. It does not completely take place in a high school gym, but some scenes do, and the other settings could fit in, I think.  Amazing script with lot's of technical challenges opportunities. However, I have not produced it yet, because I don't think I could get it past my school board, so you might want to check on acceptability for your community.

Look up the play RUBIES.  Takes place in a gym. Story of coming of age in 1st act and 2nd act is 20 years later at reunion. Female heavy -- if I remember correctly it's 4 to 6 women and 4 men.

"The End of the World (With Prom to Follow)" by Sean Abley (Playscripts) has a number of gym scenes and with imagination and only a couple of other pieces could easily be produced in a gym. Large ensemble cast that is mostly gender neutral.
