A One-Act Play for Teens
3 M / 3 F
Approximate Playing Time: 40 minutes

About 750,000 teens become pregnant in the U.S. each year accounting for 11% of the births. Nearly 1/3 of those pregnancies end in abortion. With such staggering statistics, it is no wonder that many of our young people face the overwhelming decision as to what to do when faced with an unplanned pregnancy and the consequences of that choice thereafter. Jane and Jim Jeffries’ Choice does not attempt to solve the problem of teen pregnancy but it does explore one typical teenage girl’s struggle with her choice and poses the question “whose choice is it anyway?” Teens will identify with the characters who attend classes, play sports and hang out with friends during and after school. Choice is a great vehicle for dramatizing one of life’s serious issues and prompting healthy discourse on the subject without criticizing or moralizing. It’s a play for any theatre but speaks well to teens and their audiences. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $30 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre. Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
