One-Act Plays for Acting Students
An anthology of short one-act plays for one, two or three actors

Edited by Norman A. Bert


Cover of
Twenty-three outstanding short length plays for a cast of one, two, or three actors are included in just one text.  Absolutely no cuttings.  Each play is a complete dramatic work.  No walk-ons.  All of the plays pride themselves on balanced roles with about five minutes acting time for each character.  Performance times for the plays vary from eight to fifteen minutes.  These shows, each written by a nationally known playwright, offer a wide variety of acting roles and settings for classroom or stage performance.  The scripts are excellent for secondary and university level forensic competitions, as well.  Also included in the text are sections on rehearsal techniques and procedures.  The anthology offers a variety of performance rights options including royalty-free classroom use.  This is recommended as an exceptional text for playwriting, acting, and general theatre classes.  Some of the playwrights included are Tim Kelly, Megan Terry, Stephen Grecco, Patricia Montley, and Robert Patrick.  These are just the short plays you have been looking for!
