A Little Box of Oblivion by Stephen Bean

Directed by Moyra Brookes

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, some deadly anthrax or even 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.

Characters: All characters are designated by traits so apart from Woman can be played by either male or female actors. There are no specific ages associated with the characters

Cool: Level headed and objective with a cynical wit, dressed smart casual

Woman: Flappy in character must have green hair (wig can be provided!)

Neurotic: compulsive obsessive, house probably immaculately tidy

Doom Merchant: dour, humourless (if young will be dressed as goth, if older will be dressed as anorack)

Amateur Sleuth: has been reading too many cheap detective novels

An amateur production by arrangement with Stagescripts Ltd

Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram

Directed by Moyra Brookes

“One of the most successful short comedies ever produced for the stage”

Membership of the local amateur drama society has dwindled to four. Time for dramatic action. There’s only one thing that sells tickets these days – sex. But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy……..


Gordon: Chairman who doggedly believes in the Society no matter what the adversity is.

Margaret: Diva and Leading Lady in all the shows

Joyce: Secretary of the Society, timid librarian and dreams of being in a musical

Bernard: General Backstage hand and minor actor

This amateur production of “Last Tango in Little Grimley” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. On behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
