VIRTUAL FRENEMIES – ONE ACT COMEDY PLAYS – when you meet your online gaming rival and get stuck next to them on a plane
Two girls get acquainted on a plane when they are travelling to attend a conference. Being similar in personality, they immediately get along, much to the annoyance of the almost mute passenger sitting next to them. As they get talking, each of the girls reveal that they are addicted to the same virtual gaming platform. They gradually learn that their online avatars have had virtual altercations with each other, leading to a real-life confrontation. However, through some mid-air mishaps the online rivalry is forgotten and the girls forge a friendship despite their virtual animosity. One act comedy plays for four actors.
