Reviews from Past Producers

I want my 2 dash 10! The whole night is planned around the 2 dash 10! The canapes have been colour-coordinated to the 2 dash 10. I had a string quartet compose a piece of music dedicated to the 2 dash 10.

This collection is a drama teacher's dream! Ten short two-person plays (inspired by the numbers 10 and 2!) in a variety of themes and lengths. Excellent for classwork and for competition.

The plays can to be performed as a group or individually. More flexibility than you'll ever need. Over three million combinations!

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for making "My Father Went to Switzerland..." available. I teach theatre in an English-medium international school in Berne, Switzerland and teach a unit on Stanislavski to 15/16 year old students every year. This year I used your download and it was brilliant! Not only did the students use your objective and given circumstances worksheets in conjunction with the script but also did diary entries as either Mr Jackson or Eugenie, created a whole background for them, did the scene before and the scene after. In fact did a whole lot of things and had a great time!! It's a fantastic resource and I just wanted to let you know!
