Synopses and brief production notes

All these plays have the odd local reference which you are at liberty to edit. You will recognise them; they are all quite obvious. That's because we personalised them to the individuals and locations we were working with.

They were written so they could be performed with the whole cast on stage the whole time. We didn't always have an offstage area from which the cast could make their entrances and exits. We placed chairs at the extremity of both sides of the stage with each actor's props by their chairs. Any quick scene changes i.e tables etc., were at the back of the stage, with the actors setting them up before beginning the scene. But that's flexible & you can perform them in the style to suit the venue.

After you have downloaded, you are free to amend any of them. You can add new parts or re-distribute existing lines so as to make them applicable to your youth group. We want you to feel they belong to you. They're all in Word format so you can amend them on screen before printing and save on photocopying costs.
