I have a website (www.goodschoolplays.com) that features thirty-eight scripts I wrote, directed, and produced while teaching drama in a Canadian secondary school. The scripts feature large casts and vary in style and content, but share an architecture in which roles are evenly apportioned. Most offer gender-flexible casting, and all are reasonably solid training plays that can help young actors become more proficient in their craft. All can be performed in under an hour.
There are no royalties for the use of the scripts by teachers and students. I request only that you notify me about your interest in a script, so that I can give you formal permission to produce it.
Thanks for sharing, Richard! Your plays look awesome and I am sure they will prove valuable to readers of The Drama Teacher. I have added your website to the list in this post.

Abby, other than Googling, the only place I know is Alex Broun’s website (above) for free ten-minute plays. Several of them are for one performer.
Try some of the following websites through Google:
“Alex Catalogue of Electronic Texts”
“The Online Books Page”
Most play scripts still in US copyright, however, will not be found online. You will only find historical play scripts.
