I have many, many, many five-minute scripts available, almost all of them royalty-free.
In fact, I have so many I’m not even going to attempt to list them here, or I’d spend too much time updating the site.
I take part each week in No Shame Theatre, an open mic-style venue for original performance in Roanoke, Virginia. One of the three rules there is everything must be five minutes are less. (The others are, must be original, and can’t break anything, including the law.)
As a No Shame regular since 2003, I’ve now gotten into the habit of writing a piece each week, sometimes two.
I liken it to an athlete practicing or warming up. It’s my batting practice, if you will. Some of these short pieces have since grown into longer ones — one-acts or even full-length scripts (such as “57 Hours in the House of Culture.”) Most are just happy to stay five minutes long. Some are shorter still. There’s a whole sub-category of one-minute plays (or one-page plays, as some prefer to style them.)
Many are suitable for high schools (no bad words or inappropriate themes). Others are more, um, adult in nature, shall we say. I’ve had some of each produced around the country, and around the world. Some at schools. Some at theatre camps. Some at festivals that like very short pieces.
If you’re looking for royalty-free five-minute scripts, let me know your requirements at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you some that might work.
