More > message that has appeared on her facebook wall, apparently from him, that states 'I gave you my heart' and how that might relate to a parcel that she has just received from him in the post! This short play is an exploration of squabbling siblings with equal measures of suspense and comedy and a satisfying twist at the end.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
A merchant arrives in town with a sorry tale. Years ago he was shipwrecked and survived by clinging to the mast with one of his daughters and a slave. His wife was rescued together with their other... More > daughter and their slave but the two parties became separated and haven't seen each other since.

Maddy will present a variety of methods for disposing of an unwanted husband, aided by Jim,... More > her real life husband, and her faithful employees. But is she really trying to get rid of her husband? Is the video just a ruse to lull him into a false sense of security?

Community Spirit By David Muncaster
Paperback: $4.85
Prints in 3-5 business days
The village of Snickerton has a new community hall and all the local groups get together to organise an opening day that will never be forgotten. Pity Mel, the poor official from the local council... More > who has to try to keep apart the warring factions. There is Mike, the bombastic chaiman from the choral society, who clashes with Chris, his deadly rival, as well as just about anyone else who dare to disagree with him. Add a couple of lovies from the am dram, some representatives of Churches Together who couldn't be further apart, the leader of the cubs and beavers who sees things in the night, and a host of other characters including a caretaker with a very unfortunate name. Community Spirit is a large cast play with eleven speaking roles and any number of none speaking roles that starts out as a comedy of manners but by the end is pure farce. Great fun for any theatre group looking to involve as many of their members as possible.< Less

Mad Gary's Fruit and Nut Case By David Muncaster
Paperback: $4.84
Prints in 3-5 business days

Now Tommy can be assured... More > that his market stall will always have the freshest, best value produce known to man. The wedding reception is a grand affair, friends and relations are joined by rivals who, for one day, put their differences aside; or do they? As the ceremonial fruit salad is consumed the guests start dropping like fruit flies. Who is responsible for this murderous act? What did they hope to gain? Who will be next? It’s a job for “Mad” Gary Grasslover of the local constabulary.

The Mikado By David Muncaster
Paperback: $4.59
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Mikado is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most celebrated comic operas and is as popular today as it was when it first opened in 1885. By setting the opera in Japan, W. S. Gilbert was able to... More > satirise British politics and institutions freely but everyone understood who was the true target for the humour. In my updated version I have set the action in a hospital and have a few gentle little digs at bureaucracy but maintain the utmost respect for the dedicated individuals who work in the NHS. It would be sacrilege to alter any of the lyrics so the songs remain unchanged except for "Little List" which is usually updated to include current references. Whilst it may be a little unusual for a hospital to have a Lord High Executioner on the staff, not to mention a Wandering Locum Minstrel, we still get a happy ending and that is all that really matters.< Less

An unlikely friendship develops when an joint appreciation of internal rhymes, whether by Philip Larkin or Eminem, reveals that the pair have more in common than one might imagine.

Call Girls is set in a call centre providing IT assistance to an unspecified company. Three of the women get on well together and ‘have a laugh’ but for the last six months their happy... More > little group has been spoiled by the presence of Laura, an arrogant and aloof troublemaker whose predilection for short skirts and low cut tops probably has more to do with her getting the job than any particular work skills. Thankfully this is Laura’s last week and the others decide not to let her go without letting her know exactly what they think of her.
