Knight in Shining Armour by Jos Biggs
RolesMinimum Male roles = 2. Minimum Female roles = 1. Minimum total with doubling = 6. Minimum total without doubling = 6. No chorus.

Run TimeAround 16 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleComedy sketch (a long sketch or a very short play!) with minimal set requirements (although it does require a rock and chains).
SynopsisA not-so-heroic knight is on a quest, but when he finds a maiden to rescue, the prospect of going up against an actual fire-breathing dragon is a bit much for him. Luckily for her, there's another option.

RolesMinimum Male roles = 0. Minimum Female roles = 0. Minimum total with doubling = 4. Minimum total without doubling = 23. No chorus.

Run TimeAround 18 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
