Plays For High School Students!


A collection of Ten Minute Plays For High School Students

Now available! A special version of my award-winning collection of ten minute plays and monologues, Cabfare For The Common Man – An Evening Of Plays, edited slightly to be appropriate for High School students.

They’ve already been produced at dozens of High Schools across the US and Canada, from Northgate High School in Walnut Creek, CA to Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs, FL. Professionally, they’ve been produced all over the world, from London to Cairo to Seoul to Sydney. Whole evenings of my plays have been done at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at theaters in Amsterdam, Sao Paulo (in Portuguese!), New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Indianapolis and other cities.

If you’d like to see a copy of the script, simply send me an email at markle96 (at) hotmail (dot) com or use the Contact Me page.
