Outspoken

Grades: 6-12 - Pricing: $1,070

In Prince Gomolvilas’ fast-paced play for middle and high school students, realistic young characters tackle a range of teen concerns— gender expression, identity issues, body image and self-esteem, labeling and stereotyping— demonstrating interactions from the productive to the utterly dysfunctional.

Outspoken is a 50 - 80 minute variable-length experience comprised of a 35-minute play followed by a flexible-length, fully interactive group problem-solving session (we recommend allowing a minimum of 30 minutes if bell schedules allow) designed to help students process those interactions, unpack why they are so tricky, and as a group brainstorm to identify coping and allyship strategies that support respect for differences in ways that are specific to their own school and community. Being a teen is tough. Outspoken is here to help.
