SARAH WANTS THE MOON – ONE ACT PERIOD COMEDY SCRIPTS
Sarah Bernhardt, a young actress arrives for an early morning rehearsal on the stage of the Comedie Francaise where she encounters an ex lover, a rival actress who has the leading role, a hostile director who quite simply does not like her and a faux doting mother who tries to feed her up during the proceedings.
All Sarah wants is to shine in her current role as an abandoned wife found grieving in the moonlight in a forest glade. This, according to Sarah, requires her to be bathed in moonlight (or artificial spotlight, as is the case in the theatre.) But this is not to be.
Everyone works against her for various reasons until, left alone, she decides to create an event that will resolve the situation by an extreme action. She gets what she wants – her moonlight.
Sarah wants the moon has been performed at multiple venues on 8th Avenue, New York.
