The Story

Oskar is a bullied, lonely teenage boy living with his mother on a housing estate at the edge of town when a spate of sinister killings rock the neighborhood. Eli is the young girl who has just moved in next door. She doesn’t go to school and never leaves the flat by day. Sensing in each other a kindred spirit, the two become devoted friends. What Oskar doesn’t know is that Eli has been a teenager for a very long time.

An enchanting, brutal vampire myth and coming-of-age love story adapted from the best-selling novel and award-winning film.

Play Information

The Story

A group of mismatched teachers and actors have been charged by the school district to devise an ethnically sensitive play to somehow celebrate both Thanksgiving and Native American Heritage Month. In order to be as respectful and accurate as possible, the three white actors defer to the only Native American in the room for guidance and find their expectations of her insights are wildly misguided. In this wickedly funny satire, this foursome must find their way through a hilarious thicket of assumptions, historical perspectives and school district policies as the absurd pageant must go on!

Characters

  • Logan – Female, Caucasian looking, the director as well as an actor. Earnest about theater and doing the right thing, but wants everyone to feel part of the collaboration so much that it derails the actual play.
  • Caden – Male, Caucasian looking, the academic. Teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School System with dramatic aspirations but no clue how things work on stage.
  • Jaxton – Male, Caucasian looking, the LA surfer actor. Politically correct to a fault, a big one. He’s that guy everyone loves, but his logical PC thinking takes weird turns. 
  • Alicia – Female, brunette Caucasian but has looks that would have been cast as ethnic in 1950’s movies. Hot, but not bright. That actress whose every script note ends with her being allocated more lines.
  • Character listing found on Wikipedia. Look there for further production info.

Ensemble Roles – There are a few scenes that are created with an improvisational feel. My choice for the direction of these scenes is to include a variety of ethnicities from around the world. I would like to create a celebration of our differences and similarities in the struggle to understand and connect with one another as I find this to be a main theme of the show. With that in mind, I am looking for students

that can authentically showcase their particular background. Think cultural heritage as far as appearance and music making. It could be an African Reggae musician, a Spanish Flamenco dancer, a French fashionista, and I am specifically looking for a Native American with dancer regalia. Be creative, honor your heritage and express it!
