Tumbleweed – a Comedy Play set in the Wild West

comedy play set in the wild west


Tumbleweed tells the story of love, family, betrayal and murder in North West America. There’s a new sheriff in town and he may just be what the town of Bannack, Montana needs and desperately so. The outlaws, namely ‘The Innocents’ have one motive: gold. The gold is to be found, according to the ‘prophetic’ Chief Raging Bear, whose daughter has been kidnapped by ‘The Innocents’, on a creek and the outlaws will stop at nothing to get that land in this play set in the wild west.

When the previous sheriff is murdered amongst other townspeople by ‘The Innocents’, Calvin saves the life of the previous sheriff’s daughter, Jessie, in the nick of time. He is consequently shoved into the position of sheriff and begins work, together with the help of the Bannack’s best (and sometimes worst) on bringing ‘The Innocents’ to justice.

Teen Plays


In this teen drama for high school, eight students who have nothing in common are sitting in detention on a Saturday run by the vice principal, Miss Blair. Although they are all so different from each other, they learn that they all do have something in common – each of them has a terrible secret; something bad has happened in their past which has brought them to this point. As they talk about the essay they have been set, “conformity” and the things that have happened to them, they come to the realization that conforming to life’s rules isn’t always for everybody. In order to move on, they need to accept the things that have happened to them because those things made them who they are today. A challenging play for high school drama class, loosely based on the hit movie, “The Breakfast Club.”
