HELP HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!
Playstage Senior plays have plenty of lead roles for actors aged 40 – 70+
Playstage Senior was formed in the UK in 2008 by playwright Lynn Brittney and friends and now our plays have been performed by English-speaking drama groups all over the world.
Unlike other companies that offer play scripts, Playstage Senior is committed to offering new plays that contain good parts for older actors, because we understand the needs of most amateur dramatic groups! The plays contain some younger parts but the majority of the roles are for actors aged forty and beyond (sometimes way beyond) – and not a Zimmer frame in sight!
We have comedies, dramas, murder mysteries, period costume plays – all in one act and full length formats – and we are adding new plays to our catalogue all the time.
And not only that but we have some of the cheapest licence fees in the business. Performing one of our plays is not going to break the bank, no matter how small your venue.

During the First World War just under 3000 new plays were written and licensed for performance across England, Scotland and Wales. Around one quarter of these dealt directly with the war. These plays have mostly been forgotten. However the scripts, their performances, and audience responses to them, offer a unique and unexplored insight into experiences of, and attitudes towards the Great War whilst it was taking place.
If you're looking for something different to perform, esp. for the #WW1 centenary, check out the original plays written during the First World War at our website.
All are free for performance, adapting etc.
Located at: Great War Theatre Project, School of Arts, Jarman Building, University of Kent, Canterbury CT5 1RU

Traditional pantomime scripts with a modern feel - ideal for amateur companies.
Ben comes from a theatrical family and is the son of the actor and pantomime writer, John Crocker. He saw his first pantomime at the age of three and has been hooked ever since - although he can't remember all of the show as he spent the frightening bits under his seat.
Many pantomimes later, Ben studied Drama at Exeter University and for a brief while he had a proper job in publishing which allowed him to either act in or direct a dozen productions at the Tower Theatre, Islington.
After thoroughly enjoying his time at the Tower, he took the plunge and started up his own company, the Magnificent Theatre Company. Specialising in comedy, MTC went on to become one of the country's most sought after theatre companies, playing at the Young Vic and touring to the RSC and to major theatres all over the UK. During that time he also assisted the actor, Sir Nigel Hawthorne.
In 1998, Ben became the Artistic Director of the Northcott Theatre, Exeter. Within two years, audience levels had risen to some of the highest in the country and remained so until he left in 2008. A particular highlight every year being the six week run of the much loved Northcott panto.
During the last twenty years Ben has directed over seventy professional productions, including fifteen pantomimes. Five years ago he started writing the scripts which contain all his knowledge, expertise and love for the artform. They are very funny, fast moving, true to the story and quite possibly the best pantomime scripts in the world - oh, yes they are!

A New Concept in Publishing for the Amateur Theatre
“God’s teeth! Another rejection letter. Methinks I’ll just jack it in”; might well have been the reaction of Shakespeare if he had been in receipt of the negative, unqualified and unstructured criticism dished out to some of our authors. Perhaps you, too, have experienced problems getting a play published or finding new works to perform. Amateur writers often struggle to get their work out to the wider world and producers can find it hard to quickly and easily identify new plays. Apart from refusing to publish material that is racist, xenophobic or in any other way considered to be in bad taste, we will publish and we will warn of content that might offend the sensibilities of certain elements or groups by the use of symbols. To save producers the trouble and expense of finding plays to perform we have enhanced the process of identifying suitable plays so they are able to peruse online any play in it’s entirety for free. Playwrights and Players has been established by enthusiasts who are experienced in both the worlds of amateur dramatics and publishing and who are fully aware of the obstacles many authors and producers encounter.
Royalty-free downloadable school plays and pantomimes - many with audio music packages which give a high quality piano accompaniment.
Since Playstage Junior started in 2002, our plays have been performed by English-speaking primary schools and youth groups in 39 countries!
So now, we can offer three types of easily downloadable plays:
Plays without songs in the text (you can add your own if you wish).
Plays with traditional songs in the text and you can purchase optional audio accompaniment tracks.
Plays with popular songs in the text and we provide a link to companies that provide modestly-priced backing tracks.
Best of all, once you have purchased and downloaded one of our plays and/or music packages, there are no further costs. No royalty fees whatsoever. Each play and music package comes with a licence to photocopy as many copies as your school or group requires and you may perform the play year after year.
PLAYSTAGE SENIOR Catalogue - Great Plays for Older Actors
Playstage Senior was formed in 2008 by playwright Lynn Brittney and friends. Unlike other companies that offer playscripts, Playstage Senior is committed to offering plays that contain good parts for older actors, because we understand the needs of most amateur dramatic groups!

The scripts for testing are:
Love, lust and lies on the Lentini Line (Set on a Italian train journey/in an Italian villa)
Death by Chocolate
Operation Murder (Doctors and Nurses theme )
A murder mystery called Murder at the Panto which is wrapped around a smaller version of Aladdin with a death just before the production

Josef Weinberger founded his publishing business in Vienna in 1885. Through an association with Johann Strauss II, he began licensing performances of Strauss' operettas. Licensing stage works has been a vital part of our work ever since and the principal Viennese operetta composers are represented in our catalogue: Strauss, Millöcker, Zeller, Kálmán, Oscar Straus, Stolz and Fall. We have administered the copyrights of Franz Lehár for many years for Lehár's own company, Glocken Verlag.
We have expanded into several other musical genres over the years: contemporary classical, light orchestral, educational, brass and military band, and religious. Our associated production music library, JW Media Music Ltd., is a leader in its field, while our sister companies in Vienna and Frankfurt have developed repertoire for their own respective markets.
Today, our theatre catalogue spans the century, from Viennese operettas to British musicals of the 1990s. It spans the globe too, through our representation for the UK and other European territories of the prestigious Broadway show catalogues of Music Theatre International and the Rodgers & Hammerstein Theatre Library. 1998 saw another development, our expansion into the arena of the play with the acquisition of rights in the stage works of the Hungarian playwright Ferenc Molnár.
The launch of the Website is another exciting adventure for us, and we look forward to making many new contacts through it, to strengthen our links with the worlds of theatre and music.

We have just released a new one-act comedy about modern art called 'Mirror Image' for 3m & 1f by Dr Chris Joby. A wealthy banker has bought a reflective piece of modern art, very reflective - it is in fact a mirror in a special artistic frame, but is it genuine or has he, and indeed are we, being fleeced?
