These look fun. They're already in script form, so the scans aren't a problem. Except that the pages are awfully dark! Still, I may choose one of these for the next one act collection. Thanks!

Not sure if this is the place to post, but can anyone please direct me to any plays (one-act, full-length, anything) that are for TWO PEOPLE (ideally one man and one woman)?
If you try searching for "dramatic duos" some show up . I haven't checked them for PD status.

Was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a list of the plays Charles Dickens wrote. So far on the Librivox catalogue I could only find

'Is She His Wife’: https://archive.org/details/isshehiswifeors00dickgoog/page/n3

'Mr Nightingale's Diary’: https://archive.org/details/mrnightingalesdi00dick/page/n1

'The Strange Gentleman’: http://www.archive.org/details/strangegentleman00dickrich

But there must be more!

try searching for "Charles Dickens plays", or "the complete works of Charles Dickens" " Or Wikipedia for Charles Dickens and see if they have a list - they often do. And there is probably a Charles Dickens society with a complete works. Google is very handy :D

Add to your list https://librivox.org/the-village-coquettes-by-charles-dickens/

He didn't really do that many plays. He early on discovered he could do a lot better by selling his stories widely rather than filling a theater with just a coupe hundred people for a few nights.

Thanks, Todd
