8 Male 4 Female

Murder at St. Barnabas - It's the interval during a performance of a Whodunnit? by the St. Barnabas Amateur Dramatic Society but a member of the cast really is dead. Enter seasoned detective Harry Parrot with his trusty Sergeant Moor. With people queuing up to confess, will they solve the murder before the beginning of Act Two? And will the man calling the raffle ever shut up? Definitely a thriller.

Cast : 7 ( 3 m, 3 f + 1 dead body [m] ). Suggested Age Range : 12 upwards. Running Time : 15 - 20 minutes. Set : The conventional drawing room set of an amateur theatrical society, including a front curtain acting area.

Drink? - Derek has invited Jeremy in for a drink but problems with the plumbing, wild dogs, a religious maniac and the local policeman all seem to get in the way - not to mention his attractive daughter and several buckets. A very English farce.

Cast : 6 ( 5 m, 1 f ). Suggested Age Range : 14 upwards. Running Time : 20 - 25 minutes. Set : A suburban room with two doors.
