    HI All,
    It looks like our fall play will be going up on Halloween weekend.  I'm looking for recommendations of non-musical Halloween-themed plays, ideally with lots of good female roles.  Can be comic or just plain scary.
    Thanks for your recommendations!

    very still & hard to see by Steve Yockey. It's not Halloween-themed, but it is a dark, creepy haunted hotel story. It goes to some difficult places and may be darker than what you are looking for, but it is a fantastic play! Lots of good roles for women. It can be done with as little at 8 people (4m, 4w) but we did it with 19, with a large ensemble that was involved in every scene. We had no issue getting cuts approved - mainly for language and length. I had to submit the specific cuts we wanted and it took maybe four weeks to hear back, but they were all approved.

    We did NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD for Halloween (all in black and white colors). It was fun!
