               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.

Orders for downloadable preview scripts and e-scripts are not affected.


Loving Chopin

by Chris Lambert



Set in a 19th century winter in the drawing room at the decaying stately home of Lord and Lady Cavendish.

Lord Walter Cavendish, an elderly high court judge, is a bigoted old man prone to sudden outbursts.He is also deeply sad as he hides a great secret that he can never share. He thinks that he controls this household. He does not.

Lady Josephine Cavendish, his long suffering wife is trapped in a loveless marriage but seeks solace in books, and in the butler. Highly manipulative and prone to sudden acts of extreme violence when tested, she easily controls her husband, and thinks that she controls Stiles, their butler.

He is very polite in manner but is a subversive influence in this household, for it is he who is manipulative of Lord and Lady Cavendish until his own masculinity is threatened at the end.

The absurd play can either be performed in a long(ish) one act or a short(ish) two act version.


55 mins approx


Lord Walter Cavendish - an elderly high court judge
Lady Josephine Cavendish - his long-suffering wife
Stiles - the butler.
