    I am looking for a One Act Play for a High School Production.  We only have 2 males and 17 females. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

    I know that Women and War by Jack Hilton Cunningham has a one act. It is all vignettes of different war stories so none cross over. You might be able to have the same boys play the same roles. They also have a ton of monologues, so you can add in more monologues if you need to

    My favorite one acts for high schoolers are: Cut, The End of Civilization as We Know it, Day 6, Dinner with the McGuffins and Hard Candy. They are all comedies.  
    We have also done the book World a Fire as a dramatic one act.  We turned each chapter into a monologue.  They were all connected and set at a circus.  It turned out pretty good.
