Favorite teen scene writer Laurie Allen has created this powerful collection of 15 original monologues, each ranging from four to seven minutes, that explores a variety of teen responses to the pandemic and the safer-at-home restrictions that come with it. From restoring old friendships and keeping traditions alive to missing baseball, graduation, prom, and so much more, each monologue offers a unique, true-to-life point of view of this real-world crisis.
These monologues can be performed virtually or live, individually or all together to create a moving one-hour program. Nobody captures the teen voice better than Laurie Allen, and here, she has given each character an arc to move past their anger, disappointment, and bitterness. Quaran-Teens celebrates the resiliency of teens, who, despite feeling lonely and sacrificing their own special moments, maintain an element of hope for a brighter future.
