The Visit - a Short Play in Two Acts


Ursula Kennedy

Published by SchoolPlay Productions

Large Mixed Cast
A typical English couple are returning home at night when their car stops inexplicably and they are hi-jacked to another planet. Their reactions provide a humorous view of human life, as their children have to be summoned to join them before the inquisitive minds of the space-people can be satisfied. A simple conclusion does not detract from the effective theme of a well-constructed and lively observation of our society.

Cast : 17 speaking parts (12m, 5f ) + crowd. Suggested Age Range : 8 to 11 or 13. Running Time : 40 minutes - Music : Any two (or more) well known popular tunes, if possible to be played on stage on any suitable instruments. Set : Versatile enough to include a car, a space-ship and two interior scenes; considerable scope for use of lighting and sound effects.
