Sound Bites

Full Product Description

Churches and youth groups like the idea of using drama, but the writing often proves a challenge and there's little time to rehearse.

This richly varied collection includes monologues, duologues, and sketches for several voices which are designed to work like five-minute mini radio plays. Needing almost no rehearsal, staging or costume, they are simple to perform, but offer real content and pack a powerful punch.

Many of the pieces cover seasonal themes such as Christmas, New Year, Lent, and Easter – and also some that are often overlooked, such as Mothering Sunday and Father's Day. These powerful dramatic miniatures are not all laugh-out loud funny, but all provoke and entertain and are accompanied by the author's insightful reflections. There is also a set of probing questions for discussion starters – useful in getting a group talking, or even as a basis for a sermon. A must-have for any imaginative church leader's bookshelf!

Sound Bites by Richard Everett was published by Lion Hudson in January 2014 and is our 9584th best seller. The ISBN for Sound Bites is 9780857213570.
