               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.


Exit Routes

    by Liz Turner


One Act Drama Play Script: 'Exit Routes' by Liz TurnerFive feisty but very different factory women share their thoughts, problems, jokes and insults - disappointed with their syndicate's paltry lottery win, they have to look elsewhere for escape, maybe to foreign travel, glamorous jobs - and always trying to get one over on their petty minded forewoman Carole. But when colleague Corinne returns from holiday, it seems it's no co-incidence that Tessa's husband's been away at exactly the same time - and when the Christmas club money disappears, it turns out so has Corinne.

One Act Drama Play Script: 'Exit Routes' by Liz TurnerIn all the upset, they've managed to miss putting their numbers into the lottery - and this time, they really would have won the jackpot... Disaster seems inevitable, but officious Carole has amazingly saved the day for them, and Tessa manages to get a satisfying revenge on her husband and Corinne. Now they really can escape - although dim teenage Laura might find her dreams of movie stardom as out of reach as ever, and Gemma knows she'll never be able to leave her mother, even though she no longer recognises her daughter. Money can't solve everything.
