It’s coming up on that time of year again. You need a scene for you and your partner to do for your acting class final project. Or you really want to wow them in competition this year but you want something that hasn’t been done a billion times before.
Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. With a run time of just about 15 minutes, Daddy Issues is an excellent choice for competitions and classrooms with its simple staging and small cast (just 1 male, 1 female needed). The advantage of a shorter 1 Act play like this is that you can perform the whole thing instead of having to create a hacked up version that barely makes sense to fit into the time constraints.
I love hearing from schools and students that performed sections of The Love of Three Oranges in competition and I can’t wait to see how you do with my newest play. If you’re doing Daddy Issues either in competition or for a class, please share your story below!
