               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.

INSTEAD, CONTACT US BY E-MAIL (sales@stagescripts.com) AS PHONE CALLS TEND TO BE LONG-WINDED.
WE CAN DEAL MORE QUICKLY WITH REQUESTS BY E-MAIL.

Absurd

A Little Box Of Oblivion by Stephen Bean

(1f, 4m/f) apx 40 mins Multi-Festival Winner
A woman puts a box down next to a stranger in a park, giving strict instructions before she rushes off, not to move, knock, tilt or open it. Passers-by offer suggestions as to what's inside, and what should be done with it - is it a bomb, a packet of deadly anthrax or perhaps a severed head? At last, exasperated by these highly opinionated people, the stranger shakes and rattles the box, only to be berated by the returning woman, who reveals all, much to their embarrassment.

Loving Chopin by Chris Lambert

(2m, 1f) apx 55 mins
A struggle for intellectual (and occasionally physical) supremacy between a bigoted old judge, his long-suffering and manipulative wife, and their smooth, but somewhat subversive, butler.

Mediocrity by Anton Kruger

(4m, 1f, 1m/f) apx 35 mins Multi-Festival Winner
Kenaf has just learnt that he's about to die and his life changes dramatically as he finally stands up to his domineering wife, the bullying brute and the condescending Doctor. British and Australian versions available.

Supersnout by Jane Cafarella

(2m, 2f)
An absurd comedy about love and loyalty between a man, his wife, and their dog. When Julie and Tom learn what Supersnout knows about their lives they’re never going to be the same again. Andre, their chihuahua, breaks his silence to reveal his true identity and expose Tom’s infidelity. Julie is both shocked and horrified, and so is Tom’s mistress, Gloria. A comic look at the potential for disaster and it’s satisfactory resolution, at the whim of the family pet.

Voices In The Rubble by Darren Donohue

(3m, 1f) Festival Winner
Tony comes home from work to tell his wife that he’s been fired for being caught ‘in flagrante delicto’ with his secretary, and Avril thinks she just killed the postman; but then again it could be a case of mistaken identity. What unfolds is the story of a cheating husband, a want-to-be-away wife, love affairs, dreams of travel, dead bodies in a fridge, and more. Here we have forty years of marriage neatly compressed into 45 minutes.
