RolesMinimum Male roles = 0. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 19. Minimum total without doubling = 38. No chorus.

Run TimeAround 60 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne-act play (which might be regarded as a coherent collection of skits) for kids. There's a lot going on, but it doesn't need a complex set. A fun introduction to Shakespeare!
SynopsisBumbling producer Burbage and his irate associate Iggy have put together a Shakespeare convention, at which the actors perform four plays and a sonnet in a rather unconventional manner. Iggy is out to ruin Burbage, but loses the plot a little towards the end!

Sic Notus Ulixes? by Nicholas Richards
RolesMinimum Male roles = 5. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 7. Minimum total without doubling = 7. No chorus.

Run TimeAround 15 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleHumorous Homeric epic in a fifteen minute play aimed at beginners' classes in Latin!
SynopsisThree scenes from the story of Ulysses' homecoming translated from the original Greek (*) and thoroughly mangled and distorted for dramatic presentation. Narrated by the original poet himself.

Performance by Central High School finished as runner-up in the Maine Principals Association drama competition 2014
RolesMinimum Male roles = 1. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 25. Minimum total without doubling = 25. Chorus. Whilst Mr Gauche, for example, is given a gender, it isn't really key to the plot! Many of the characters, are, when all's said and done, anthropomorphic personifications of cells and micro-organisms.
Run TimeAround 30 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne act play set in the imagination of a character fighting off an infection, where the protagonists - germs and blood cells - act-out their roles. Fantasy, but with a lot of educational value.

The Tempest by Geoff Bamber
RolesMinimum Male roles = 9. Minimum Female roles = 2. Minimum total with doubling = 12. Minimum total without doubling = 12. No chorus. The characters preserve Shakespeare's original, which means that the Naples court is all male. It need not be cast that way.
Run TimeAround 40 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleA play originally written by William Shakespeare and completely altered by Geoff Bamber. (This version is in modern, humorous. English. It extends the story back in time to avoid the long exposition speeches of Shakespeare's second act!)
SynopsisProspero, Duke of Milan and part-time magician, is tricked into undertaking a hazardous sea journey by his treacherous brother, Antonio, who promptly takes over the duchy when Prospero is conveniently shipwrecked in a great storm. Prospero, along with his daughter, Miranda, survives the wreck and finds himself on a desert island. From there he uses his magic powers to gain revenge on Antonio and Alonso, King of Naples, who is unwittingly supporting Antonio under the influence of his own unscrupulous brother, Sebastian. With the principals all gathered on the same island, Prospero sets out to divide and conquer, a task somewhat hindered by the presence of a range of bizarre and possibly deranged supporting characters.
