INSURANCE ON THE LINE – TEN MINUTE PLAYS
A husband and wife insurance team, Jim and Lisa, are co-hosts on a radio show on which they answer insurance based questions for people that call in. The rosy bubble of their perfect lives bursts one day, with revelations that come out live on air in this ten minute satire.
Author: Leon H. Kalayjian
Type: Ten minute plays, one act plays
Number of actors: 4-5 – the smaller roles may be doubled. 2F 3M
Ages of the actors: Main characters late 30’s to 50’s, 1 young female caller and two others undetermined.
Suitable for: All ages
Slightly to one side but in a prominent location, a radio station announcing booth (or a table with two chairs behind it).
On the table is a microphone in front of each chair. On one or both sides is a telephone switchboard. Between the microphones is a fairly large “Kill” button. LISA and JIM sit at the table.
On the other side the three phone callers appear, holding a telephone receiver or cell phone to their ear. These actors are lighted only when “On.” The playwright’s choice is that the players are actually offstage, and we only hear their amplified voices.
Level of Difficulty: 6/10 – a nice short fast paced play for a small cast.
Cost is $5.50 for this digital play script
