JACK MASTERSON AND THE CASE OF ABSURDITY – A TWO ACT TEEN FARCE
In this two act farce, Jack Masterson has just started a private detective agency with his friend Lisa and they are awaiting their first case when Miss Lovely walks through their door in need of assistance. It seems that a priceless family heirloom of Miss Lovely’s has gone missing and she needs Jack to find it for her. Jack gladly accepts the case and starts by checking out the scene of the crime and questions Miss Lovely’s maid, Yvette and her obnoxious neighbor Sandra Moody.
Jack comes to the conclusion that his old nemesis, Professor D. Veous must have some information on the whereabouts of the missing heirloom. While Jack goes off to question the Professor at his headquarters underneath the local Happy Hamburger Hut, Lisa goes down to Club Shady to question some of the local thugs about the theft. While there she runs into Jack’s biggest rival Detective O’Malley who decides to help her out questioning the criminal element. What heirloom could possibly worth so much trouble? With three different endings it could be anything!!!
