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.
SynopsisAn anonymous journalist reports on various horrific situations in areas of conflict in various parts of the modern violent world. Her message is all the more poignant as it is delivered without words.

StyleModern language version of Romeo and Juliet. No set requirements.
SynopsisDoes what it says on the label - although to get down below sixteen and a half minutes, the play needs to be done (as intended) at manic pace. [Our estimate is that a steadty pace would run to 18 minutes.] Follows the plot and structure of the original work (so structurally in five acts).
