Plays

Wonderful quirky plays for schools and youth theatres

Looking for a play that’s a bit different for your school or youth theatre production? Maybe a bit off-the-wall, quirky, surreal and generally jolly good fun? Well, at Offbeat Theatre, that’s what we tend to produce! 
The plays below are some of the titles we have on offer and the links will take you to the relevant page on our dedicated ‘scripts for youth theatres and schools site’ – The Script Store. What they all have in common is a quirky craziness that kids of all ages just love. They are all tried and tested.
