The Mixer by Glyn Blakeborough
RolesMinimum Male roles = 1. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 2. Minimum total without doubling = 4. No chorus. The two main characters are of retirement age, but by no means decrepit! Two of the characters are voices on the phone, so could, conceivably, be recorded.
Run TimeAround 20 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleShort one-act play, single set (in theory a domestic kitchen, but could easily be done in a 'black box' presentation). Walks a careful line of bittersweet tragic-comedy. Contains mild swearing.
SynopsisPeter and Edna have been waiting for three weeks for their bins to be emptied. Peter helps old Mrs Thorburn by putting her rubbish into the correct bins for collection, but it turns out he's been getting it wrong, and Mrs Thorburn is under threat of legal action...

My Sister, The Thief by Mary Stone
RolesMinimum Male roles = 0. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 3. Minimum total without doubling = 3. No chorus. Two characters are written as female but can be played as male - this would of course require a change in title, which the author is happy for you to do.
Run TimeAround 20 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleA one-act play ideal for teenage performers, with minimal set requirements.
SynopsisAlly has always looked up to her big sister, Tee, the hockey star, the brightest pupil, so generous with gifts. But now she’s discovered that Tee has been stealing those presents, not buying them.

The Neville Report - Village of Fear by Gary Diamond, John Fryer & Ray Lawrence
RolesMinimum Male roles = 2. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 3. Minimum total without doubling = 8. No chorus. In theory, because it's a radio play, this could be done with a very small cast - Neville, the central character plus one other male and one female playing the rest of the characters. One of the characters - Harry the Leg - is purely a sound effect!
Run TimeAround 25 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne-act play - a comic pastiche of a 1950s radio drama intended for presentation as a staged radio play.
SynopsisA comedy radio play that pits intrepid reporter Neville Reville against the supernatural goings-on in Merry Waddle on the Weddle. Aided only by a leg in disguise, Neville braves the Portals of Hell (a pub), Lusty Wanda (a siren) and the evil Mordred to rescue Lady Purity!

Odd Ball by Steve Menary
Perfomance by Berriew YFC won the Best Production (plus two other awards) in the NFYFC National Finals, 2010.
RolesMinimum Male roles = 2. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 3. Minimum total without doubling = 4. No chorus. It would be possible to double Scott with The Spot, but that would require rapid changes, so would need a lot of thought to go into the costumes.
Run TimeAround 35 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne-act play about a teenager with testicular cancer. Rapid alternation of scenes implies an outline set, rather than detail - thus suitable as a festival piece. Contains mild swearing and discussion of a serious subject!
SynopsisDanny is a football player on his school team, but he's got a secret - something like a spot in a very private place. It turns out to be a lot more serious than acne, and costs him his place on the team, and the friendship of his closest mate. Are they both gone forever?
(The script is in British English, so 'football' refers to a game in which the ball is addressed principally by the players' feet.)
