PARALLEL LINES 

A piece of music-theatre

by DAVID WENDEN and WARD BAKER

Music by WARD BAKER

 Cast:  17 main speaking parts (6 m, 7 f, 4 variable) + 34 minor roles (variable m/f); doubling is possible.
 Suggested Age Range:  11 upwards
 Approx. Running Time:  80 minutes
 Music:  12 numbers: solos, choruses and choreography; contemporary styles. Accompaniment by piano or, ideally, by keyboards and small band.
 Set: Open and flexible - works well in the round. Can be done simply - with lighting and props - but there is scope to be more ambitious.
 Synopsis:  Life throws up many challenges and problems, failures and successes, triumphs and defeats; and at each age of man, worries are relevant and no less important.
Each contrasting scene illustrates that what may appear trivial to one may be vital to another; each story has its antithesis; each runs on Parallel Lines.
