Crime Doesn't Pay

by Alison Chaplin

Crime Doesn't Pay is a gentle comedy based on a short story by Thomas Hardy. This simple to stage play has a strong moral, and allows children the opportunity to explore many aspects of stagecraft, including mime, narration, dialogue and tableaux. Set at Christmas, play performances could be expanded to include appropriate songs and the humour will appeal to adults and children alike.
