    Greetings!  I am looking for an EXCELLENT script for 4 high school aged female performers (non musical).  Am looking for challenging material with a running time of 45 to 60 minutes, approximately.  Would rather find a good script that allows for interaction (scenes!) rather than a series of monologues.  Please feel very free to post all ideas here - I'll check them out!  Really just want to find strong material that will allow these advanced students to grow and push themselves.  Thank you - and have a great day!

    Hello, Marc! There are a few past threads along these lines that might help inspire you. Try these:

    Scenes for 4 women

    Scenes for 3 women

    Good dramatic script for strong women

    Additionally, a community theatre in our area recently produced a newer show called Women Playing Hamlet that might be worth a read. Easy set and costumes, 4 women played 18 roles-challenging and entertaining. There is adult language, so it may not be perfect for high school but it might fit your other criteria.

    4 high school girls, about an hour long, one continuous scene. I don't remember any objectionable content or language. Only tricky part might be the british accents. I think most high school girls would love the characters and the play.
