Description

In a time of lockdown,the Chairman Gordon calls an emergency meeting, complete with social distancing, to discuss his idea for their next production when restrictions ease - a touching love story set in a hospital, with all profits destined for the NHS. But based on their previous efforts, will the NHS actually end up worse off?

LOCKDOWN is a new addition to the popular Little Grimley series, which follows the antics of a hapless Amateur Dramatic Society desperate for audiences, and it's a perfect fun-filled romp to kickstart your own society after lockdown.

You can either stage Lockdown with another one-act play, or on its own as a short play. Lockdown requires no set, no complex lighting, only a few chairs and simple props.
