Good luck deciding on a play to suggest. You could ask for inputs in the other related topic.
Well, the problem isn't finding one. The problem is choosing one from the very many good possibilities! On a related note (purely hypothetical, of course), is it acceptable for one person to BC more than one play in the same collection? I can't recall whether I've ever heard anything about this one way or the other.

I've seen people BC multiple plays in past collections. I don't think there is a strict limit per se, but I'm assuming doing more than two would seem unfair to others wanting to have a go, since each collection can only have 10 plays max.

Yes, I certainly wouldn't try to do more than two at once. I just couldn't remember whether I'd ever seen it done.

Two plays seems a reasonable limit. I did that in the last collection.

Thanks, Todd

Is it alright to claim parts in 2 separate one acts?

If so, I would like to claim Miss. Tomkins.

You're allowed to claim a role in every play if you wish. No limits, as long as it's one role per play. :D

I'll play Mrs. Twisselton.

And Lucile. If I'm not mistaken, her only two lines are "Yes, sir" and "Yes, sir." :lol:

And the Sentimental High School Girl, please.
