Custom Written Scripts

You know how it is. You find a play you want to perform but,

  • you don’t have enough men,
  • you can’t fit four sofas and a dining table onto your stage,
  • your mature cast just don’t look good in school uniforms.

The difficulties in finding a play to fit can be never ending when every penny (and production cost) matters. So what are your options? You can change the sex or age of the characters, possibly doubling up on parts. You can attempt to fit four people onto a two seater sofa. You can give up and find another play. Or you can contact Murdering The Text.

We can take into account your cast, your stage and your theme, among other considerations. We can also work to flesh out your own storyline. Here are some of the ways in which we can incorporate your ideas into a script:

  • If you have chosen a particular period (e.g. the 1960s) or a historical event for your play to be themed around, we will do the necessary research to not only write a play for you but we will also be happy to share our research with you for your own needs.
  • You have an idea for a storyline but are not quite sure how to write it down. We’re happy to use your storyline as a basis for your play.
  • You’ve thought up a wonderful set of characters, maybe based around your available cast, but are not sure how they could be put to work. Send them over to us and we’ll write a play around them.

All of our custom written plays are created in ongoing discussion with you, the client. If your cast changes over the course of writing, we’ll change our character list. If your play is relocated, we’ll re-write to suit your new stage. After all, this is as much your play as it is ours.
