Impisi by Clive Essame
RolesMinimum Male roles = 0. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 2. Minimum total without doubling = 22. No chorus. 10 speaking roles. Characters are all animals, birds, or insects. In the original professional production all characters were played by 2 actors.
Run TimeAround 30 minutes. [Estimated!] The scripted elements are short, the rest - very flexible - is music, sound and movement.
MusicThe added music should have an African feel and be instrumental. Lazy Bee Scripts does not supply any sheet music with this script.

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'.
Run TimeAround 20 minutes. [Estimated!]
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.

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.

One of the characters - Harry the Leg - is purely a sound effect!
Run TimeAround 25 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
