22 Comedy Ten-Minute Plays
Royalty-free Plays for Teens and Young Adults

By Laurie Allen


Cover of
You won’t find a better quality or larger collection of ten-minute plays anywhere!  And the best part?  They’re all royalty-free!  These original and creative plays by best-selling scene writer Laurie Allen are already getting attention, winning spots in one-act play festivals across the country.  Ideal for 15- to 30-year old actors, the fresh variety of topics skips the cliché teenage themes.  No cafeteria settings.  No dating scenarios.  No homework angst!  The eclectic settings — restaurant, airport, nail salon, award ceremony, news room, support group session, job fair, and more — are all simple to stage and leave the emphasis on interesting characters and intriguing situations.  Each of the 22 scenes is a complete, original play, and includes a cast of characters, set description, and list of properties.  Cast sizes range from 2 to 8, and include many gender flexible roles for easy casting.  Don’t worry about inappropriate language or situations — these short plays are all clean and family friendly without feeling childish.  You’ll have hours of fun with these comedy delights, whether for contest, performance, or classroom use.
