Find the right Full-length theatre script for your group
We have interpreted "full-length" as any play that might stand alone for an evening's entertainment.  Generally that means longer than one hour.
All the scripts can be read in full on the Internet.  Click on any of the underlined text to see descriptions of the works in your chosen category (from where you will find links to the on-line text)...

Note that the scripts from these pages are the ones that we think are suitable for performance by adult groups.  For scripts for youth theatre groups, see our kids' play scripts pages.
  The Full-Length Drama search engine allows you to select a script by number of characters, run-time, age of participants, and lots more!  (This is a sub-set of our full search engine.  Use the full script search engine if you want more search parameters, such as the ability to search by author and theme.)

Full-Length Drama by Theme A few miscellaneous categories of full-length scripts...
Biography
Play Script Collections (these are collections of shorter scripts which might be performed together)
Musical Plays
Oddly, these are mainly scripts for which we don't provide full sets of sheet music!  They are generally plays where the author has specified the use of songs (frequently "popular songs") as a counterpoint to the drama, as distinct from a Musical, where a composer has written specific music for the show.  (For shows for which we provide music, see the Musicals pages.)
Family Shows
This category covers shows (other than pantomimes) that are aimed at family audiences.  (Generally humorous and with musical elements.)
Dickens
Ghosts
History
Illness
Science Fiction
Shakespeare
Sherlock Holmes
Theatre
