               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Roy Brown: Reclaiming Stonehenge

    by Derek Webb


       

Comedy Play Script: 'Roy Brown: Reclaiming Stonehenge' by Derek Webb

Synopsis

If Scotland can get back the Stone of Scone, Greece wants the Elgin marbles back and India wants its Koh-i-noor  diamond, why shouldn’t Wales have the Stonehenge bluestones back? 

The play starts with Roy and Emma walking the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire.  Emma points out one stone with astrological powers and tells Roy about the history of the area and its association with Stonehenge. The idea begins to take shape in Roy’s mind of starting a campaign to have the bluestones returned to their rightful place in Wales. He forms Carreg Las and the group starts by trying to enlist the support of members of the Welsh Assembly with little success.

Roy’s friend Jane knows many members of a local eco-community who are about to be evicted. Roy turns up to help and during an interview with a local newspaper makes his case for bringing back the bluestones from Wiltshire. This results in more support for his ‘cause’ and the newly enlarged Carreg Las stages a protest by blocking the Severn Bridge with camper vans which causes great media interest. In particular, the owner of a local theme park offers to sponsor the removal of Stonehenge back to Pembrokeshire. He can see distinct possibilities of the attraction, especially when coupled to a new white-knuckle ride…

Everything appears to be going well until Roy starts receiving more mail, some of which appears to be from irate Druids who remind him in no uncertain terms of Stonehenge’s association with sacrifices, and how he could be instrumental in revitalising the ritual. Rattled, Roy quickly backtracks and persuades the other members of Carreg Las that it would be a far better idea to create a replica Stonehenge instead. They set to work, and then an American turns up who’s interested in exporting the stones across the Atlantic…

This play is the full length version of the one act comedy 'Roy Brown: Bringing Back The Bluestones'
