A hilarious spin-off of the popular Netflix series, Stranger Things, Odder Things is an original play with 28 parts for use as a fun classroom read-aloud or a royalty-free stage play. When one of a group of misfits goes missing, his friends must go on a quest to find him. Find him they do, in a most unlikely place...trapped in Green Eggs and Ham, held captive by the most heinous villain in all of literature: Sam-I-Am! Since the sheriff doesn't believe them, they'll have to take matters into their own hands and use their power of reading to bring literary heroes to life to get their friend back. Can they rescue him from the "book-side down" before it's too late? Complete with questions for discussion and reflection, Odder Things will entertain your students and audiences with appearances from literary greats like Nancy Drew, Katniss Everdeen, Greg Heffley and Eeyore and help you illustrate literary terms like theme, mood and characterization. One part action, one part literature and all parts fun, Odder Things will bring your stage and books to life!
