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! 
What they all have in common is a quirky craziness that kids of all ages just love. They are all tried and tested.
