Better by the dozen! This book of 12 royalty-free mystery plays have running times between 20 and 30 minutes and are perfect for classroom exercises, an evening of one acts, student directed shows, fundraisers and more. Cast sizes range from 4 to 11, and all are either balanced or favoring female roles. No cuttings here! These are all full plays including a synopsis, a cast of characters and complete production notes on setting, props, costumes and sound effects. They are especially workable for middle schools and high schools, but there are scripts here for all ages. You'll love the variety! 'The Mother Goose Mystery' features a cast of suspicious nursery-rhyme-quoting characters. In 'Queen of Hearts' a young Shakespeare helps solve a crime. 'The Clue in the Library' is perfect for a library fundraiser and 'Mommy's a Zombie!' is a wonderful farce. Best of all, they're all royalty-free!.
