Twelve female roles although this could be performed by a smaller group with parts being doubled up.
All the action takes place on what is essentially a school stage. No back drops or scenery is required.
No props are required
A gentle flatulence noise (short and discreet)
A door bell followed by a cow mooing and sloppy cow pat splat.
This Christmas I’ve had an all female group of twelve students to write a script for. I wanted to make sure that they all got equal stage time but also I wanted to keep the piece to a short and reasonable length. I feel that it could be performed as a series of monologues by as few as two or as many as twelve performers. The idea is that the girls are all playing the same person, Mary Christmas, who has received extravagant, inappropriate and truly bizarre gifts from her true love this Christmas and she
is, in one way or another, not impressed by what she has received.
