RolesMinimum Male roles = 1. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 2. Minimum total without doubling = 4. No chorus. The two main characters are of retirement age, but by no means decrepit! Two of the characters are voices on the phone, so could, conceivably, be recorded.

The Neville Report - Village of Fear by Gary Diamond, John Fryer & Ray Lawrence
RolesMinimum Male roles = 2. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 3. Minimum total without doubling = 8. No chorus. In theory, because it's a radio play, this could be done with a very small cast - Neville, the central character plus one other male and one female playing the rest of the characters. One of the characters - Harry the Leg - is purely a sound effect!
Run TimeAround 25 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne-act play - a comic pastiche of a 1950s radio drama intended for presentation as a staged radio play.

Odd Ball by Steve Menary

RolesMinimum Male roles = 2. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 3. Minimum total without doubling = 4. No chorus. It would be possible to double Scott with The Spot, but that would require rapid changes, so would need a lot of thought to go into the costumes.
Run TimeAround 35 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne-act play about a teenager with testicular cancer. Rapid alternation of scenes implies an outline set, rather than detail - thus suitable as a festival piece. Contains mild swearing and discussion of a serious subject!
SynopsisDanny is a football player on his school team, but he's got a secret - something like a spot in a very private place. It turns out to be a lot more serious than acne, and costs him his place on the team, and the friendship of his closest mate. Are they both gone forever?
(The script is in British English, so 'football' refers to a game in which the ball is addressed principally by the players' feet.)

SynopsisHarold Davidson has arrived in Limbo, and a lot depends on the nest few minutes - how he accounts for the extraordinary events of his life until his death by mauling will determine where he goes from here. Was he really immoral, or a modern-day saint treated badly by the church?
This is the true story of Harold Davidson known in the 1930s as 'The Rector of Stiffkey'. His unfrocking by the Church of England was a cause celebre but he attained even greater notoriety by later preaching in a lion's den at a circus.

Second Thoughts by Colin Calvert
RolesMinimum Male roles = 1. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 2. Minimum total without doubling = 6. No chorus.

There are also a few lines addressed to passers-by who might or might not appear on stage.)
Run TimeAround 30 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
