What should be the plot of the play that my friends and I make?

Asked by chickadee (38points) January 13th, 2011

My friends and I are really into making up plays, putting on costumes, rehearsing it, and then showing it to our parents. But this time we are absolutely clueless on what to do for our play. It is only 4 people. 3 girls and 1 boy. Stories you give are always appreciated. Thanks.

If you are really into making up plays, that implies that you think up your own plot. Otherwise, it is not your but mine or ours’.

Check out the Greek myths, the fairy tales of the brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson, American Indian folklore.

Do classic fairy tales from a modern perspective. Like, goldilocks and the three bears, where the bear family is one of your friend’s family, and goldilocks is one of your friends who comes over, finds the door unlocked, goes in and…

Do a play about internet relationships. Someone is trying to figure out if someone else is stalking them, and the other two provide advice, but one of them is secretly into that person and is a rival with the one who might, or might not be stalking.

Wheels within wheels. The more absurd, the better. It’ll be so funny.!

There’s nothing like a good revenge play.

You can use the revenge plot as a skeleton for your play, but you’ll need to be creative with the details.

It’s fun to re-enact a fairy tale. Everyone gets to play a character, or two. Put your own spin on it. This will make it easy in that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, but there’s plenty of room for creativity.
