Dead Weight by Rob Ricards
RolesMinimum Male roles = 3. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 3. Minimum total without doubling = 5. No chorus. All the characters are written male, but, as the author put it, 'there is no reason why one or two could not be female'. In theory, it could be done by a cast of three, but two of them would have to do a quick change from undertakers to tramps.
Run TimeAround 15 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleFifteen minute absurd comedy (with more than a nod to Samuel Beckett). Single, minimal set and a coffin. (Contains swearing.)
SynopsisTwo undertakers, sick of carrying the coffin after their hearse has broken down, ditch the corpse out to lighten their load. The corpse is happily reanimated by a couple of passing tramps.
(The author provides hints as to the identity of the corpse, but also provides alternative hints - with the option of choosing a death to suit the production!)

And who else may the murderer pounce on - the curate, the tennis-club alcoholic, the Russian au pair, the doctor, the Dean? A spoof whodunit inspired by Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders.
