The Apple Kingdom is the play which reads best and is suitable for, as they say, audiences of all ages. It's a fairy tale. The reason characters suddenly start speaking in verse periodically is that it is a musical in disguise.

LIZARD Once upon a time, a long time ago,
For that's the way these stories go,
Once upon a time, a sigh across the years,
Initials in a stone, a reflection in a tear.

Stones is a play about two women journalists on a holiday/assignment to Scotland. They meet up with a somewhat sinister yet romantic Scottish thief at the Callanish Standing Stones. It's good in performance, but reads the least well of the three.
