What contemporary plays include a young male character, around the ages of 12-18? I know that this is very broad, but I'm in need of titles. Any suggestions? I'm a fifteen year old boy whom is seeking plays tp possibly put on or take a monologue from. FYI: The character dosnt NEED to be a starring role, he can be supporting as well.

Adding Fences and Simon's Eugene Jerome trilogy to Imeldasturn's astute and very comprehensive list.

SIDE MAN. The leading character/narrator is in his teens in the main part of the play and adult by the end.

 

Cast albums are NOT "soundtracks."
Live theatre does not use a "soundtrack." If it did, it wouldn't be live theatre!

I host a weekly one-hour radio program featuring cast album selections as well as songs by cabaret, jazz and theatre artists. The program, FRONT ROW CENTRE is heard Sundays 9 to 10 am and also Saturdays from 8 to 9 am (eastern times) on www.proudfm.com

Dill and Jem from To Kill A Mockingbird should fit the bill too!
