What Happened at the Mud Puddle
Cast: 8 female, 4 male
Genre: Comedy/teen, monologue play
Set: Minimal, a yacht party, a backyard
Running time: Approximately 25-35 minutes
Taylor and Chloe have been best friends for years. At least, they had been, until Taylor suddenly and mysteriously throws an over-the-top yacht party the same day as Chloe’s birthday party. Despite Taylor’s reputation as the meanest girl in school, her party fills up, as no one wants to turn down the chance to sample an extravagant candy station, dance to the live music of the hottest new band, or receive a $50 gift card goodie bag. But before the boat even leaves the dock, Taylor begins to turn on her guests, moving in on Jasmine’s crush, telling Ronni to “walk the plank!” and humiliating the new girl, Amanda. Will the lure of the luxurious yacht, complete with its very own ferris wheel, and live entertainment, be enough to keep the guests from walking? Or will they abandon ship for nicer ground at Chloe’s backyard ice cream party? Loyalties and friendships are tested in this ensemble cast play, and of course, someone gets pushed into a mud puddle.
