HUMAN RAT LAB – HIT COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT AN UNCONVENTIONAL PRIVATE EYE
Extorting big business? Yes! Writing ‘them’ a damning blackmail letter? Of course!
Demanding hundreds of thousands from this ‘seedy’ corporation? Naturally, it should be easy. But that is not the case when Valerie Ann Bennett, head of said company, hires a
private detective to find the culprit before he brings her pharmaceutical empire down to its knees. Unconventional, unconvincing, and un- everything really, Charles Picket would not be
Ms. Bennett’s first choice for a P.I. were it not for the discretion he organically provides.
Throw in his cleaner, and a struggling stuttering actor as his associates and this case looks like it could very well implode in Ms. Bennett’s face. In fact it does indeed implode. But not
in a way she ever suspected in this hilarious hit comedy script.
Human Rat Lab has had a successful run and received rave reviews in France. This is a burlesque comedy in the lines of Lucille Ball and Jerry Lewis in their best days.
“You have a staggeringly good ear for dialogue. The words fairly crack along. And you have a good eye/mind for the “memorable scene” – I mean things like the marvellous Spanish nurse scene, and the crazy Viagra fuelled scene.” – Robert Jarman, Co-founder and director of Hobart’s highly successful Blue Cow Theatre and recipiendary of the Federation Medal for his services to Performing Arts in 2002.
