The Bluemoon plays - for children and young people

The Bluemoon plays are perfect for school teachers looking for classroom plays. They range from 20 minutes for lower primary, to 45 minutes for the young adult plays. The average running time is half an hour, with varying and adaptable cast sizes ranging from 8 to 30 young actors. These plays were devised, workshopped and performed by students of the Bluemoon Theatre Company. If you are interested in purchasing any of these scripts, please feel free to contact me and I will send an extract of the script through for your perusal.
