Plays by Theme
These are themes present in the scripts, not necessarily the subject of the script.
(There are many other themes - these are just things we've noticed!)
Plays for specific character ages
This is a complex category! Many companies have mixes of ages, and many plays are for characters of indeterminate age.
If you have very specific requirements, then our Play Script search engine may be a better place to start.
To give a flavour of what is possible, here are a few examples
Some characters 51 to 65 no limits on the other characters
No characters must be under 35 (though some might be)
Lots of other combinations are possible!
You can use combinations of the above categories (and a lot more) in our
Play Script search engine
