JOINED AT THE HIP – SOUTH AFRICAN COMEDY SCRIPTS
When Siamese twins Jack and Jill’s car breaks down in the middle of a one horse town in the South African Cape countryside, they try to rent a room in the town’s only hotel. Tensions and comedy run high when the dimwitted receptionist insists that they won’t be allowed to share a room because of them being a man and a woman because that sort of thing is simply not heard of. When the manager is called and she is found to share a similar view, Jack and Jill can hardly believe it. Joined at The Hip is a comedic view of people in small towns who have deep seated traditional values but who, at the heart of it all, have the best intentions.
