The chase – one act period romantic comedy

THE CHASE – ONE ACT PERIOD ROMANTIC COMEDY

one acy period romantic comedy

How does a bit of gossip sound? Meet Barry. Barry sees Carrie, spills wine on her and is immediately struck by Cupid’s arrow. Barry proceeds to have Sally, his assistant, deliver a message to Carrie, with a date proposition. Carrie is only convinced by her assistant, Larry, who charmingly seconds Sally’s notion that Carrie has nothing to lose from a night of free dinner and wine, with Barry in this one act period romantic comedy. Carrie agrees to the date. But Carrie has Harry (he does business in America) and let us not forget Hallie, also thrown into the mix for some odd reason. Hallie is a wedding planner, she may or may not be vital to this comedy and she’s an American (interestingly enough). Barry, Carrie, Sally, Larry, Harry and Hallie are all pleased to be a part of London’s finest and The Chase. They bring the ‘50’s to life in a case of the best and worst of times!

First comes love, but just before marriage, here comes dear arrogant, toe-raggedy, uncivilised, clumsy Barry in a weird yet charming carriage!
