Matchbox Theatre

(2014)
A Book by

 
Matchbox Theatre presents a miniature sketch show: thirty dialogues and monologues by Michael Frayn, to be played in the smallest theatre in the world - the theatre of your own imagination.

Sir Geoffrye and Lady Hilarye, sleeping peacefully on their marble tomb these last six hundred years, are woken by the thump of rock music in the crypt beneath them...

A gala performance of Shakespeare, and as a special treat the sponsor's guests are being wined and dined on stage as extras in the banquet scene...

The eternal triangle in an airport departure lounge: two lovers and the flight announcements...

The scripts are provided. Everything else - casting, set design, ice-cream sales - is up to the reader...
