I am BOB GALLEY, a retired doctor from Central Queensland, Australia.
For over thirty years I have been actively involved with amateur theatre as an actor, director and writer. I have written a lot of plays, full length, one act and ten minute. Many genres are represented. Many of them have been performed locally, directed by myself and others; some have been performed interstate and even overseas; one has been adapted as a film. There are quite a few still in the pipeline.
Like all playwrights, nothing pleases me more than to have them performed, although there have been times when I had to grin and bear it. If anyone wants to perform or peruse any of them- feel welcome.
Four of them have been published- "THE FAMILY JEWELS", "A PIECE OF PAPER" both melodramas, by NEW THEATRE PUBLICATIONS, London, UK- "WILL ANYONE COME TO OUR PARTY" & "IT LOOKS LIKE A SHEEP" ,one act black comedies by ONE ACT PLAY DEPOT, Saskatchewan, CANADA. Permission for performance of these plays will need to be obtained from the publisher.
The Family Jewels (4m,4f) concerns the Governor who is a little too fond of philandering with Maisie, the maid, and his absent minded wife who are awaiting the return of their son George who is bringing the family jewels. George's fiancée, Frances is very aware of her humble origins reacquaints herself with Miss Horsfall, the Governor's efficient but unattractive secretary. Enter Uncle Richard, the villain who is intent on stealing the jewels. The ending is a little unexpected.
