The Gala Programme by Tony Best
RolesMinimum Male roles = 3. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 4. Minimum total without doubling = 4. No chorus. Whilst there isn't a formal requirement for a chorus, one could easily be added, as the protagonists refer to the reactions of crowd.
Run TimeAround 20 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleShort one-act play, adapting a story by Saki. Single set (as simple as you like). A comedy, if you have Saki's very dark sense of humour.
SynopsisA sufragette rebellion is projected back to Roman times. The Romans, needless to say, did not have very modern attitudes to female participation in the political process, and the emperor's solution to the problem is calculated to please the crowd of the circus maximus rather than twenty-first century sensibilities!
