Plays for Schools offers a range of Plays For Student Performance, School Plays and A Level & GCSE Exams.

Welcome to Plays for Schools

The plays on this site were once part of Dramaworks but with the other resources now bought by Digital Theatre, Jeni has opened a new site just for the plays. There are some for every school age group and many especially written, either by Jeni or by teachers, as examination pieces. There are lots more to come too, as soon as she can type them up…!

There are too few for primary schools as it stands, so Jeni is busy writing and commissioning more of these.
