PETER’S DREAM – A THREE ACT PLAY FOR HIGH SCHOOL
In this three act play for high school, Peter’s family is about to lose the cottage they have lived in all their lives to their wicked uncle, Marmaduke. Marmaduke believes that his dead brother’s fortune is hidden somewhere in the cottage grounds and will do anything to get hold of it. He is aided by three slightly stupid louts whom he uses to do his dirty work for him and who threaten Peter’s aunt with violence in order to force her to leave. Peter’s family’s prospects seem bleak, until Peter receives a mysterious scroll in a dream that will help solve his family’s problems. With the help of the plucky “Angel,” they set about finding the hidden treasure and getting their revenge on the wicked Marmaduke. With a cast of twenty one, this play is ideal for middle and high school productions.
