Kids in Tights - The Play by Bill Siviter

Run TimeAround 20 minutes. [Estimated!] The ball and fight scenes can be extended.

StyleRomeo and Juliet told as an irreverent verse play, told by the protagonists and by narrators. A good introduction to Shakespeare's story! (The specified run-time is the minimum - extending the ball and the fight will add time!)
SynopsisShakespeare's Romeo and Juliet condensed into a twenty-minute verse play for kids. Boy meets girl, love overcomes the family feud - but only for the lovers. Swordplay turns rivals into kebabs. Mistakes are made and the heroes die. (You see, it's a soppy love story.)

SynopsisHenry VIII accidentally succeeds his father to the throne, after the premature death of his elder brother. His divorce from his first wife brings him a run-in with the pope, which doesn't stop him repeating his mistakes, including the disastrous acquisition of a wife via e-Bay (Ann of Cleeves, apparently), in his quest to furnish an heir to the throne.

King Lear by Geoff Bamber
RolesMinimum Male roles = 9. Minimum Female roles = 3. Minimum total with doubling = 14. Minimum total without doubling = 14. No chorus. The number of roles can be increased by adding soldiers (the King of France in particular would make good use of them.)
Run TimeAround 55 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleShort modern-English version of Shakespeare's tragedy. (Whilst the plot is all there, there are more comic moments than the bard envisaged.) The author has structured this in 13 acts, but don't let that fool you.
SynopsisAn ageing King Lear intends to retire and hand over his throne to one of his squabbling daughters. The Earl of Gloucester, on the other hand, does not intend to retire but his scheming son, Edmund, wants to take over the title anyway, even if it means by-passing the rightful heir, his brother Edgar. The two families' affairs become linked and a violent tale of treachery, jealousy and blind ambition ensues.
Despite the body count running into double figures, this is a comedy.
