Patty and Tom (20s) are newly married. Patty has a surprise for Tom. However, that shock is nothing compared to the revelations in store for this newly married couple! There’s Bernadette (50+) – Tom’s rather snobby mother, George (50+) Patty’s distraught, tradesman father, plus the colourful animal-loving neighbour Dorothy Attenborough (50+) – a role, which, no doubt, the late Margaret Rutherford would have truly made her own.
The purchase of a single script infers no Copying or Performance rights. (Scripts and music can’t be copied for readings, auditions or rehearsals without purchasing the Copying Fee.) The fee gives you the right to copy the script and musical scores that you have purchased as many times as you need for these performances.
To stage a performance, you must announce your performance dates to Maverick Musicals and state whether you are or are not charging for tickets. This will dictate what kind of royalty fee you will be invoiced for.
Copying Fees (for rehearsal materials) and a Performance License must be obtained before your production can take place. Our streamlined system means that a Performance License Application is activated when you order the Basic or Deluxe Package. (Please note that it is a breach of Copyright to copy scripts and music, or to perform musicals or plays without the Publisher’s permission.)
Sample: Three Chairs
A sparkling homegrown comedy which recalls the best of British farce, this audience-pleasing laugh-fest, winner of the People’s Choice Award at the respected Noosa One Act Competition, features a number of memorable characters.
Here’s a play to showcase some of the older members of your theatre company (Dorothy, Bernadette, and George carry much of the humour), whilst still providing important opportunities for two younger players. Three Chairs! is a very funny and skillfully written show especially suited to those with a love of precise timing.
With its minimal requirements in terms of props, setting and lights, Three Chairs! is an ideal vehicle for touring, whilst its running time and cast size make it a most attractive Festival play. Three Chairs! – lots of laughs, easy to stage, with plenty of acting challenges. What more could you want in a one-act play?
