Wilsonville High School
A Play by Tom Arvetis / Directed by Jason Katz
Spark is a modern dystopian fantasy story set in an underground society called Sanctuary. The main character is a teenage girl named Pandora and she and her friends are encouraged to fear and destroy Outliers, or people from the surface, and they practice surviving against them in a virtual reality simulation called “The Game.” Pandora loathes the simulation but she will soon discover a secret that will challenge everything she has ever learned about the world she lives in. Spark speaks to many current issues in our world including an over-reliance on technology, standardized testing, a severing of the connection between human beings and the natural world, and the ever-presence of misinformation and “fake news.” Spark is also a riveting and exciting hero’s journey that demonstrates how one individual can stand up to power and create a more hopeful outcome.
Spark is recommended for ages 10 and up.
