STREAM OUR NEW PLAY FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES FOR FREE!
A playground. 2 teams. 2 captains. It’s the same thing every day at Chavonne’s elementary school – her best friend Wes is always picked last. So she hatches a plan to end the schoolyard cycle. Still, after a few imaginary visits from visionaries Sigmund Freud and Elon Musk, plus a little help from the new kid, Chavonne learns that the problem she’s trying to fix may not be the one that needs solving.
Don’t miss this funny and touching story – infused with music and poetry – about standing up for your friends and learning to let them stand up for themselves.
