MusicNone.
StyleHumorous history, peppered with anachronisms. Single simple set, simple props. (Technically 3 Acts, but short enough for a one-act play!) Fits with the English National Curriculum Key Stage 2 History syllabus (at a stretch!)
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.

Run TimeAround 30 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleLoosely based on Treasure Island - so loosely that Robert Louis Stevenson is probably spinning in his grave. Jokes and puns and a new take on an old story. Not strictly a pantomime, but might be played as one.
SynopsisJim Hawkins, now in possession of the tattered map of a distant tropical island, sees a life of adventure and great riches beckoning but, as the story unfolds, he realises that he is not the only one with an interest in the treasure.

SynopsisThe school is under threat of closure, the bursar is gambling with the school funds, the school secretary has left, an inspection is due any minute and things keep going missing (including several pupils). What this school needs is heroism and leadership. What it has got is an incompetent head, staff members bent on partying, a group of very dangerous science students and, somewhere, a kleptomaniac. A tale of muddle, romance and the Mongolian police.

The Lambton Worm by Timothy Hallett and Nicholas Richards
RolesMinimum Male roles = 3. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 5. Minimum total without doubling = 19. Chorus. Very flexible casting. There is one narrator role, but this could be shared out. Equally, the chorus could be 'all the actors'.

MusicA 40-page musical score is included with the Producer's Copy of the script.
StyleShort musical retelling of an English folk tale. (The music plays throughout, even though some of the narration is spoken rather than sung.) No real set requirements, but the ideal performance would put some effort into creating a fearsome worm!
SynopsisThe tale of the wild worm of Wearside and its grisly end.
It should be emphasised that 'worm' is used in its old sense of 'serpent' - so this is a story of knights fighting dragons.
