Reporting From... by Liliya Sazanavets
RolesMinimum Male roles = 3. Minimum Female roles = 3. Minimum total with doubling = 6. Minimum total without doubling = 12. No chorus. A lot of doubling is possible, but the author does not recommend it, because each character represents a specific group in society and the characters have to deliver a clear message to the audience.
Run TimeAround 20 minutes. [Estimated!] This is based on the author's experience. Since there is no dialogue it is very difficult to judge!
MusicNone.
StyleMimodrama - a drama with no spoken words where plot and emotions are conveyed through actions. Performed well, this could be a very powerful piece. Props and furniture (including a swing) but no fixed set.
