The Originals – A World Premiere Play by Brandon Force

The Originals tells the story of three prep-school boys who are accused of plagiarism having turned in identical essays word for word, semicolon for semicolon, and two upperclassmen who are assigned the task of sussing out the truth, leading all five to decide for themselves what is more valuable – the truth or the schoolboy code of honor. Play Your* Part presents this world premiere in partnership with the GSBA Scholarship Fund, awarding scholarships to LGBTQ and allied students who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and are actively involved in school and community organizations. A Note on Casting – The characters in The Originals have been cast regardless of the actors’ age, race, gender identity, or ability. By casting the play as such, we not only aim to engage under-invited artists and their communities, but the story of privilege, class, the education system, and the abuse of power, becomes the focus.
