Lindsay, I met you at the Missouri State Theatre Conference at your workshop. I really enjoyed the workshop and intend to use your Character Slam as a regular unit in my Advanced Acting class.
At the workshop you gave me your catalog and when we decided to do Shakespeare I looked at your adaptations first. We are down to our final two shows and I just wanted to tell you both what an outstanding theatrical experience this has been for my kids and their director. I have produced Midsummer in the past from the original and it wasn't nearly this successful.
From the layout of the script itself, to the notes on the side (which absolutely excited my actors and produced many thoughtful conversations), to the ordering process, to the download and photocopy abilities I cannot say enough good things.
Your company is wonderful, I look forward to working with you in the future and I will recommend you to my colleagues.

A vignette play is a collection of short scenes on a theme. You'll love working with the variety and flexibility of the scenes. Your actors will love the fast pace and fun characters.
There's more. Every Theatrefolk vignette play holds the unexpected. A showcase monologue. A dramatic moment. A change in form. A left turn.
Ideal for classwork, competitions, and more!
