Plays For Student Performance - Working For The Company by Andrew Shakeshaft
4F. Futuristic idea – what if the cultivation of drugs was government funded and big business? Serious piece.
Could be used at A level. Has sufficient character depth and/or impact through presentation style.
The play as it stands lasts about an hour. It is easy to pick and choose scenes to reduce the length. As an all-female play for older students, this is a useful one for GCSE or above as an examination script. Parts are equal and differentiated enough to be challenging and interesting. The play should be performed in a naturalistic style. Andrew Shakeshaft is an award-winning playwright and many of his plays have been professionally performed.
