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.

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!)
