IN TENTS – ONE ACT PLAY ABOUT BULLYING

It’s your typical high school camping trip, except not so typical. Forced to come up with an alternative trip due to budget cuts (little Jimmy only got a B in Lit and his daddy sued the school), our home room teacher has come up with a plan. Camping out in the cellar. Six students are chosen and put together for this assignment. Six students who have nothing to do with each other and who will have to get to know each other over the course of an evening. The students are free to leave at any time, but if they do, they fail the class. All they have is a tent (in a bag), a microwave, some microwave meals and some jars (for the necessary). How will they survive the night?

A LOVE – NEVER FORGOTTEN – HUMOROUS  DRAMA FOR MATURE ACTORS

Just an old folks’ home? No. This community is more than that. It houses Rose, Alice, her husband Gordon, Ted and Jill. In this one act dramedy, it is a retirement village for mature and independent
individuals, thank you very much.

Of course it makes sense then that the most, ahem, senior ones have the deepest secrets hidden from those who ought to know them best and know truths that would shock the ones who’ve ‘seen it all’. Enter Ives (literally) whose visits to the home are to view it with the intention of perhaps moving in soon. His latest visit unravels Alice’s panic at a ghost from Christmas past. When Ives and Alice do ultimately face each other, Alice is presented with the face of a ghost alright… one that sweet, unassuming, Rose may know everything about in this humorous drama for mature actors.
