SynopsisThe town of Taviscombe is a quiet, peaceful hamlet, however this leaves the local newspaper and police force without much to do. To try and combat their boredom and get themselves recognised on a national level, both organisations independently plan a robbery. Unfortunately the fool-proof schemes they come up with are identical, leading to a great deal of confusion and the disappearance of the money they were targeting.

Moving With The Times by Jennifer Garthwright

Run TimeAround 105 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicSheet music for one song (suggested for one of the Music Hall Turns) is supplied with the Producer's Copy of the script.
StyleLarge cast family comedy play, set backstage in a 1900 Music Hall, alternating with the Turns on the Music Hall stage. The script includes seven optional Turns, including a short one-act Melodrama. (Other Turns can be substituted by the producer.)
SynopsisBack stage at Mr. Harding's Music Hall all is in turmoil - ticket receipts are down as the company is threatened by the popularity of the Moving Picture House next door, Madam Harding, the star of the show, has lost her nerve, someone has blocked the chimney, causing the wings to fill with smoke, and the lowly stage hand is definitely not what he seems to be. Even so, the show must go on, and the back stage drama alternates with the Music Hall turns on the stage.

Pleased to See the King by Adrian Cale
RolesMinimum Male roles = 5. Minimum Female roles = 6. Minimum total with doubling = 11. Minimum total without doubling = 11. No chorus. Characters are adults with a variety of ages (some need to be credibly the adult offspring of others!)

StyleCombination of Costume Drama and Farce. Single set (interior of a country inn in 1775). Simple props.
SynopsisThere's excitement at the 'Kings Arms' when it is announced that the King is expected in the neighbourhood. Then the actors arrive - not so much strolling players as players on the run, not wishing to be recognised, so at first it is very convenient to be mistaken for the king. At least until the real king arrives. (And, since the King is George III, it's no surprise that it all gets a little mad.)
