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!
