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.
