A one act, humorous comedy, suitable for high school students and adults.
Quiet Please takes the audience to a normally uneventful suburban library to find a Frenchman set on creating a gastronomic feast, a nurse who recalls a fatal mistaken identity, a Texan tycoon with his bossy wife, an irate mother, an undercover detective and a horticulturist with a combustible tree.
Menacing bikies and innocent joggers all become involved in a comical climax which proves to be too much for the two elderly, somewhat behind the times, librarians.
An ideal festival or competition piece.
The seventeen characters offer great diversity, allowing the actors to build strong, exaggerated and contrasting personalities.
Perfect as a workshop for drama or English students, it offers excellent exposure to characterisation and can be used as a unit on role play.
