               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.


More Tea, Vicar?

    by Geoff Buckingham



Comedy Play Script: 'More Tea, Vicar?' by Geoff Buckingham

The Church in Botchington needs a new roof, but has no funds, so the bumbling committee of St Cedric's decide to organise a garden party and invite the leading morality campaigner and philanthropist, Lady Porchester, in the hope that she’ll make a sizeable donation to the roof fund. However. the Vicar's attempt to impress her with an announcement of his intended marriage backfires rather badly.

Love-rival’s handbags fly and the committee are at each other’s throats, prompting Lady Porchester to threaten a walk-out. The day is saved. though, when a startling revelation about her love life elicits a very large donation. The play ends with her in a highly-charged sexual state, thanks to her being mistakenly given a powerful aphrodisiac, as she chases a trouser-less Vicar out of the garden.

This comedy is fun to perform as well as fun to watch and can be performed as a stage play or in ‘radio’ format.
