Hidden Treasures

A collection of original drama pieces by Pip Parry

ISBN 0-9545180-0-4

A book of 160 pages, containing a collection of original short comedy pieces, 37 in all. They include solos and monologues; duologues; pieces for choral speaking; sketches and one-acts; plus an Appendix of pieces written especially for older actors.
The layout is very clear and actor-friendly. This book will be appreciated by Festival Adjudicators and organizers everywhere, as well as drama teachers (both private and within schools), as a welcome relief from the standard but over-used pieces performed daily. It offers a refreshing and wicked humour, often in the form of parody or 'tribute' , which may inspire an informative examination of the original.

It will appeal equally to all amateur (and perhaps professional) Theatre companies or individuals who are interested in short pieces for solo or small group performance, or to armchair readers of drama who enjoy a reminiscent chuckle. Much of the material is especially suitable for all-women groups or for older actors.

Notes on Performance
The project has not been undertaken for profit, and genuine amateur or Charity performances of any of the pieces will be assessed at a minimal or zero rate, provided adequate credits are assured.

An unusual and innovative feature of the book is the provision in the end pages of a Performing Rights Application Form to be sent to the Company if you intend to perform any of the items in this book. This form is also provided on-line. It may be downloaded, completed, and sent as an e-mail attachment. Permissions approved at no charge can be returned by e-mail.


" Pip Parry has for many years been a writer of distinction - his work is witty, energetic and innovative - and its recognition is long overdue."
Jocelyn Lord. MA, LGSM, LLAM, ACSD, GODA.

" … an excellent collection of material, carefully observed and full of wit and pathos. Pip Parry's work is much needed to fill a gap in the market for short pieces suitable to be performed by mature groups of both sexes."
Janice Millar, L.A.M.D.A., Drama Teacher, Skipton
