A Load of Rubbish - Small Cast Musical by Sue Gordon
Best Seller
RolesMinimum Male roles = 0. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 2. Minimum total without doubling = 5. No chorus.

The characters are inanimate objects, so gender is flexible, though the script assumes, for some reason, that the beer can is male and the perfume box is female!
Run TimeAround 60 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicPiano and vocal scores for eight original songs are supplied with the Producer's copy of the script.
StyleOne-act musical for a small cast (designed to be played by an adult touring company to school audiences)
SynopsisLife on an overspill rubbish dump takes a philosophical turn, with items of garbage asking 'why are we here?' - and making a song and dance about it!

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.

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.

SynopsisBen and Jerry are the pantomime horse Nobbo. During the play's interval, amidst the mayhem of a missing dame, the two disagree on the future of their act. Their once-bright future has been reduced to what is to all appearances a failure. Ben wants out and has the golden opportunity of a legacy from his aunt. Jerry perversely cannot bring himself to quit and it becomes apparent that he closely identifies with Nobbo.

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.)
