I finally figured out my ending and my title for the newest middle school play. On the Other Side of the Mirror.
As I’ve mentioned, this play takes place in two locations on campus simultaneously. On one side, we see Nigel, who wants to slay the dragon; on the other, we see Geeri, who wants to use the dragon to enhance his sorcery.
I stumbled on the ending for a while. It’s hard to end two stories simultaneously when each one has the same weight and the audience hasn’t seen half. Because it’s a play where the audience moves, the audience takes on roles in the narrative, albeit passive, and I think I found a way to get it to work.
Below is a draft of the poster, created by a student. The black boxes cover places where there will be edits.
