I have written a number of plays for play festivals, as well as read through hundreds of plays on the internet, and I realized there is gap in the publishing industry where good authors struggle to get their plays published. So I have created an online play publishing company that will publish and sell plays!

Dueling Chefs – short skit for 3 people

short skit for 3 people

DUELING CHEFS – SHORT SKIT FOR 3 PEOPLE

Once upon a time, two chefs started a cooking show together. Fast forward to now.  Time has passed and things have, well, soured a bit.  One is definitely more famous than the other. One is the better chef. One looks better on TV. Period. It’s actually a matter of opinion who is. But they both think they are. And tonight on live television, things are about to get nasty in this short skit for 3 people.

Duelling Chefs has been written twice – one for an all female and one for an all male cast, depending on who is available.

DR REASON – SCI-FI PLAY SCRIPT ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH AND MIND CONTROL

 

Dr. Rachel Junger, a psychologist is trying to find out why her former patients have devoted their lives a revolutionary movement called ‘The Analog Underground’ when she’s called on to counsel a man with no past who believes he comes from a future where all of humanity shares a single consciousness. Is his vision a heaven or a hell? After the strange man makes an impossible escape, Dr. Junger has to find him to find out what happened that time long ago in the near future.

The man is Simon,  and it is he who tried to break into the Cybernetics Lab of the medical facility she works for. Little does Dr. Junger know that her interview with Simon (who thinks he is from the future) would be the catalyst to events that would change her life and the world, forever in this sci-fi play script about mental health and mind control.

Simon, a guinea pig, for some sinister testing within the Cybernetics Department, reveals his true nature as Dr Junger encourages him to do so. His current psyche is a result of a growth that’s being used to control his mind and rationale by an organisation known only as the Singularity. But then Simon disappears as it’s revealed that other very specific patients whom Dr Junger has encountered, have also been experimented on by the Singularity. Dr Junger gets closer to understanding why she must escape the Singularity’s clutches but initially, no less closer to understanding why the Analog Underground resistance movement has chosen her to be at the helm of a budding revolution. It’s a fight against time, for the future and for the people.

The heroes of the revolution never really know they are.

comedy about a video store

EJECTED – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT A VIDEO STORE

‘Same Day Video Rental’ is quite literally on its last breath and the owner, Henry, is equally over being the heir to a crumbling and profitless video rental store. In Ejected, the world is simply streaming via the Internet more and more every day and there is no room for an establishment like Henry’s in this two-act comedy about a video store.

Duke, the local ‘tough guy,’ who was once a ‘loser’ compared to Henry in their youth, has a large stake in the property market surrounding ‘Same Day Video Rental’ and also owns a very successful movie streaming service. His big property stake is as large as his tolerance for his dumb girlfriend, his ego and his disposition for anabolic steroids.

Duke antagonises Henry, his staff (Wilson and Justin) and his sister (Rachel) just enough to push Henry to sell the store…to him. In this comedy/drama in two acts, the force that is family and loyalty coming together for a cause that is more than worthy, change this sad excuse for a video store for the better and give Henry a sense of optimism he hasn’t seen in too many years. Blurb If he can’t save it – Rachel, Wilson and Justin will!

THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE – SOUTH AFRICAN PLAY FOR SCHOOLS

All the girls at the local girl’s high school are excited to see who’ll be the next head girl and who’ll be a prefect.  There’s the girl who thinks it should be her. Obviously. And the girl who has recently turned over a new leaf and desperately wants to be elected but who has a troubled past. And then there’s the matter of race.  Some girls feel that because last year’s head girl was white, a girl of colour should get the vote this year.    Voting for the head girl starts today and it’s going to be tricky in this South African play for schools…

“Imagine if everyone voted objectively; not because they have a grudge, or because of skin colour, or something that happened in the past. But, instead, they all vote because of the good that the girl could do. They vote for the person who shows the most honesty, integrity, fairness and impartiality. Can you imagine? Then the teachers couldn’t ignore us, because we made a good, solid choice together. That would be cool.”

The pupils all vote for the girl they think are the best choice, but in the end, do the teachers get a say?

When was 1916? – Irish play about the Easter Rising

Irish play about the Easter rising

WHEN WAS 1916? – IRISH PLAY ABOUT THE EASTER RISING

1916 – a time of turmoil when the Irish sought independence from Britain and they were prepared to fight for it. It was mid world war 1.

“They did not expect it to win power, what they planned was a spectacle, a gesture to transform public opinion,” he said.

Pat, an Irishman living now yearns to write about the Easter Rising of 1916.   As an Irishman himself Pat understands the importance of what he wants to do. Even if he were to overlook the significance of the certain elements he wants to portray, his trusty (and let’s face it) annoying laptop companion, Nat, would never let him forget about them in this Irish play about the Easter Rising.

Pat is challenged by Nat to delve deeper into the exploration of the Easter Rising by choosing to write a play. According to Nat the events were a momentous theatrical occasion and so Pat has all the material he can use at his disposal. Together, they study a typical Irish family, political figures, and military personnel to get the most colourful picture of the occurrences of the Irish countrymen’s bid for an independent republic.

The burden of a writer is rarely over even when the project is complete and lucky for Pat, Nat is with him every step of the way and beyond!

DR KRITZINGER’S 12 O’CLOCK – AWARD WINNING PLAY ABOUT NAZI GERMANY

The fascinating, if horrific account of how a group of less than twenty men in a meeting changed the world and impacted its history forever.

In this one act play, the matter at hand has to do with the Jewish untermenschen and their existence in European society. The drama revolves around the men at the 1942 Wannsee Conference seeking a permanent solution to expel the Jews from Europe and reinstate the Aryan race at the top, where the men believe they should be in this award winning play about Nazi Germany.

It is a scenario we’ve seen time and again: how a few men can make disastrous decisions in the name of beliefs that they think the world ought to live by, for the greater good. This meeting resulted in the Jewish genocide known as the Holocaust. As a thoughtful Kritzinger predicted, more than just a few million Jewish lives would be lost ‘for good’ after that meeting.

Dr. Kritzinger’s 12 O’Clock won the Best One-Act Award at the 2015 Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwright’s Festival.

343 UNION STREET – COMEDY SET IN BROOKLYN

Gary and C.J. are just two regular guys from Brooklyn who, inspired by the hot day and the beer they’re drinking, decide that they are going to write a play. C.J.’s friend, Holly is currently in a play which to all accounts sound terrible, and they’re convinced that they could write something at least a little better than that one in this comedy set in Brooklyn.

After all, who knows what inspiration may just walk around the corner? For example, there’s Vinny, the ex boxer who lives in the same building. He went out every night and got beat up , just so he could support his sisters.  That’s a great story.  And how about the creepy old lady who lives in the building? She’s got to be known as “Killer” for a reason.  And the homeless guy on the corner? Rumor has it he’s the landlord’s brother and had it not been for a little incident, he would have been the landlord and not his brother. Plenty of material there!

Or they could just go to the store for more beer…

The Passion of Mary – American historical religious play about the Quakers

THE PASSION OF MARY – AMERICAN HISTORICAL RELIGIOUS PLAY

Forty years before the Salem witch trials, Massachusetts’ Puritans were hanging other Christians for slight differences of opinion. The play THE PASSION OF MARY details the importance of the Separation of Church and State in early America through the battles and life story of a young woman that builds self-awareness and confidence while keeping her sense of humor intact in this American historical religious play.

“It wasn’t just witches they were hanging, but their own.” This is the story of Quaker Mary Dyer, who was hanged by Puritans in the Boston Commonwealth in the 1600s.

Featuring a cast of historical characters including early leaders Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson, plus England’s Lord Oliver Cromwell, the play starts as Mary buries her child that was stillborn and disfigured. Within weeks Mary’s world crumbles, first seeing her best friend kicked out of Boston where they had settled for over 16 years. Then the colony’s leaders discover the dead baby, and publicize to the entire community that Mary gave birth to a monster. She, too, is excommunicated, and scorned by her neighbors.

Mary ends up in Providence, Rhode Island, with others that were kicked out of Boston. The open-minded Roger Williams invites Mary to visit England with him. It is their hope to create a positive relationship with the Native Americans that live in the new colony.

In England, Mary becomes versed in the loving deeds of Quaker beliefs, and helps soothe the country’s leader Lord Oliver Cromwell through his many fears. Though respected in England, she wants to return home to the new world where her family lives.

Upon her return, Mary’s ship lands in Boston where the Puritans have declared the Quaker religion as illegal. She is arrested. Because her husband still has political ties with the Commonwealth, she is set free and ordered to never return. Mary returns, and is arrested yet again. One of her party is put to death. Mary’s husband, who has been fighting to keep his wife at home, realizes the Puritans’ cruelty, and finally offers his blessing for Mary to return again. His support allows her to sacrifice her life for religious freedom.

Upon Mary’s death, she is welcomed to the afterlife by her child, the one that the leaders of Boston referred to as a “monster.”

REPERTORY THEATRE – COMEDY ABOUT TRYING TO GET A PLAY STAGED

Meet our young hopeful playwright. He has, of course, written a play and has approached a colleague of his late father’s (an artistic director (specifically of repertory theatre)) in the hopes of getting it produced. He hopes that the relationship between the artistic director and his late father will be in his favour and that his play will be staged at his theatre in this comedy about trying to get a play staged.

Meet our artistic director. It’s true that he is a colleague of the young playwright’s late father who unfortunately died during a production of Hamlet. It’s also true that he is a typical director – self inflated ego, bombastic and possibly slightly mentally unstable. He also has no intention of staging the play.   He, however lacks the ability to say so directly and thus leads the young man on a merry dance through the play to break the news to him. He may or may not have had sex with the playwright’s mother. Okay, he did.

Meet the ghost of the young playwright’s father, also known as Richardson. He’s dead, extremely pissed off, haunts the theatre and he has a good suspicion that the artistic director slept with his wife.

This play is both uniquely comical (It had me in stitches) and challenging to play for the actors. In act one, the interview between the playwright and the artistic director takes place.  In act two, the same actor who plays the playwright plays his late father’s ghost and the dialogue in act one repeats itself from the ghost’s perspective and reveals a secret surrounding his death during the final performance of Hamlet.

Read about playwright Eldad Cohen. Other plays by Eldad – Family exercise – a drama about a family falling apart in free verse.

Author: Eldad Cohen

Type: Two-act play

Genre: Comedy about trying to get a play staged

Cast: 2M – two characters are played by one actor so the play has three parts played by two actors.

Ages of the actors: 50’s and 20’s

Suitable for: Adults

Length: One hour

Set: Artistic director and young playwright are sitting in the director’s office. The room was once a stage theatre. Down side left, a chair. Downside right, a desk and a chair. A manikin wearing blond wig on its head and a sword is positioned upstage left. Upstage center, two empty frameworks are hanging side by side. One is substantially bigger than the other. A pile of plums lies on the desk.

Level of difficulty: 8/10 – this play is very funny. Delivery of lines is important as many of them need to be delivered deadpan on the director’s side with emotional reactions on the part of the son and his late father. A skilled actor needs to play two different roles in act one and two.

(There’s a Smoothie Place coming in in their spot instead) All Montgomery has to do is put the finishing touches on a beaver he’s been stuffing before he bids the old place farewell. His wife, Cookie and lifetime friend, Whiskey are helping him pack up everything in the shop in this American one at play.

Enter Janice Rothstein with a very unusual request, which she’s willing to pay plenty for. In fact before he takes the job, she offers him $30 000. Enough to keep the business going, for sure. Enough for them to live on for quite a while. Only problem is, it’s the first time Montgomery’s ever been asked to stuff this kind of animal. Our kind.
