A collection of entertaining plays for church drama groups. We've never seen plays more creative,more dynamic than these. Though all the dramas have their origins in scripture,they are more than just biblical re-enactments- each has an innovative spin guaranteed to win over even the most challenging audience. They are ideal for church fellowship dinners,youth gatherings,as fund-raisers and for special church services.

Ted Williams is a fantastic author. I've directed four of the nine one-act plays in this compilation. Each play has a suggestion for the staging, which is helpful. These plays were a real hit with the actors and with audiences. The stories are modern-day adaptations of Biblical passages; very well written. Mr. Williams sprinkles humor throughout the plays, and sometimes by the bucketful! My only complaint is that he should have several more script books in print, including some full-length plays. The plays run between 15 and 45 minutes, with casts from 2 to 20, with most of them in the teens. If you're looking for a repertoire of excellent dramatic material, you won't find anything better than this.
