IDOLS, a fifteen minute play for high school students, was a winner of the Words Players Theatre's 6th Annual Original Short Play Contest of plays submitted from all over the U.S.A.
Set in the hallway of a high school, the idols in question are Rocky and Valerie, portrayed in glorified, glamorous poses by two pedestaled manikins or students posing statuesquely and are the center of attention for passing students. The two elites, however, maintain their haughty, aloof superiority throughout. Being ignored by their idols is especially hurtful to Becky, in love with Rocky, and Arthur, enthralled by Valerie. The two students are ridiculed by other students until they erupt from their captivation and stand up to their detractors.
Actors: six females, five males, other non-speaking students as needed.
