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!

Singles Forever – African comedy script about marriage

African comedy script about marriage

SINGLES FOREVER – AFRICAN COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT MARRIAGE

A wedding is nothing but the union of two people: body and spirit. For Omotola, the fiancée of Kantanka, she wants his bank account, his time, his independence… Simply put: all that he owns he believes should remain his own, regardless of him being married. The boys agree that Kantanka should continue to be true to himself, in fact, they can hardly believe he’s defied their rule of brotherhood, to get married. In Singles Forever, an African comedy script, the time before a soon-to-be-bride and soon-to-be-husband get married, is put into focus and is as raw as ever. This comedy with three acts, shows us what happens when a firecracker (Omotola) partners with an aging lion (Kantanka) and if the forces around them (the boys, a lawyer, an ex-girlfriend family, etc.) can influence them enough to change their minds. You do know marriage is for ‘good,’ right?

Although written for an African cast, this play has international appeal and could easily be performed in any country.

Stone Cold Sober – a monologue for a young actor

monologue for a young actor

STONE COLD SOBER – MONOLOGUE FOR A YOUNG ACTOR

A one page monologue for a young actor about how it is to grow up with a father who is an alcoholic and continually going in and out of rehab all the time. The father is now seriously ill because of his drinking and this monologue is the final plea from a daughter to a father to stay sober, just so that they can have a little more time together. A great monologue that, although written with a female in mind could be used by either a male or female actor as a short audition piece for drama school or college.

An original monologue from Macee’s latest play “Stone Cold Sober” was selected by Smith and Kraus Publishing for print in their annual anthology series: “The Best Women’s Stage Monologues of 2017.

Childish Authors – one act comedy about the classroom for a mix of adults and kids

comedy about the classroom

CHILDISH AUTHORS – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT THE CLASSROOM

You’re an author. You’ve written a book for children that you think they’ll love. So when the local school invites you to a book reading for nine year olds you jump at the chance. Poor you. You should never have done that. Apparently your book about modern moms with nannies and dads who drive SUV’s isn’t quite what you thought it was. The kids are quick to point out that there was no way that Holly would have paid for an ad to hire her own nanny and the fact that the mom posts pics of herself on the internet is obviously completely inappropriate for a children’s book in this one act comedy about the classroom.

Luckily their teacher has wised up after a year with these little brats and she knows just what to do to fix it. And it doesn’t involve raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

FAMILY SEPARATION – A DARK COMEDY SKIT ABOUT PARENTS SEPARATING. FROM THEIR KIDS.

When Andrew and Andrea set their kids, Fran and Francis down at the table to talk about something important, the kids naturally assume their parents are going to get a divorce. After all, they have been fighting an awful lot. So it comes as a huge shock when their parents inform them that, yes, they are legally separating, but, no, it’s not from each other, but from their kids. After all, the kids are the source of the problems they’ve been having, really. Without them, they’d have more money and even be able to go on that holiday they’d always wanted. Of course they’d have to move out. Who?  Why? Well, Andrew and Andrea are really attached to the house so it should be the kids that go. Simple? Of course it is! A dark comedy skit about parents separating from their kids.

DRAMA FOR TEENS ABOUT A CAR ACCIDENT

THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD – DRAMA FOR TEENS ABOUT A CAR ACCIDENT

Imagine that, in a moment of thoughtlessness your life would change for ever, and would even be over.
It’s the holidays and three teens, Danny, Ben and Rachael are going to spend the holidays at the cottage owned by Danny’s father. Danny, egged on by Ben, has driven there in his father’s car without his father’s consent. Danny also hasn’t got a driving licence or insurance in this drama for teens about a car accident.

Just a matter of a few minutes from their destination, Danny takes a bend on the wrong side of the road, resulting in another car swerving out the way to avoid them and crashing, with fatalities highly likely. In a moment of panic, Danny doesn’t stop at the scene of the accident.

When Rachael arrives at the holiday cottage on her motorbike a little later she brings news. The car they hit had one survivor, a policeman. She then produces a gun she took from the scene of the crime. What she suggests next is unthinkable.

The wrong side of the road was was one of nine scripts short-listed in the 2009 Kenneth Branagh Drama Writing Award competition.

THE RIGHT APPROACH – TEN MINUTE COMEDY FOR THREE ACTORS ABOUT A BROTHEL

In this ten minute comedy for three actors, young Eve, who has been working in the same position for the past few years (mostly on her back, but some clients do like a bit of variety) plucks up courage and asks for a promotion from her boss. The only thing is, Eve feels that she hasn’t been challenged at all in her current position and is looking for an opportunity to prove she’s worth the promotion.

Enter Eve’s latest customer, who swears he isn’t going to pay because….he just wasn’t satisfied!! Although Eve finds this hard to swallow, she hardens her resolve, puts her head down and insists that he pay his dues. When her boss threatens to call the police and her now confessed dead broke client bursts into tears, it’s up to Eve to come up with a solution for everybody.

A fun comedy that alludes to what the nature of the business is without ever saying so in so many words.

YOU WANTED TO SEE ME?  COMEDY SKETCH ABOUT BEING LATE FOR WORK

Roger is a guy with a problem. A problem that’s recently become more and more noticeable to his line manager. What is it? Well -in the past two months he’s been late for work pretty much three days out of five. For a number of reasons. The usual ones – his alarm didn’t go off and his car wouldn’t start. And…those that are a little less usual, such as having a flock of giant bunnies gallop past his window one morning and being mugged for his travel card by a man in a dress. Not to mention the dognapping for half a million pounds he was recently involved in. The thing is – every single one of these reasons is true. Completely true. And today he’s being called to the big boss’s office to have a little meeting about it in this comedy sketch about being late for work.

The author will allow workshopping of the language in the script to make it more local to the area is it being staged.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 – this play can make use of physical comedy to add to the humour if the performers wish to.

THE PENDRAGON SACRIFICE – AWARD WINNING PLAY ABOUT MERLIN AND KING ARTHUR

So it is in the reimagining of the adventures of Merlin and his motley crew, that an evil too ghastly to imagine rears its head and must be done away with.   In this one act drama, Arthur of Legend, his brother Marcus, Gwenivere and a band that only Merlin could come up with have one task: to defeat the darkness before it has its chance of setting in in this award winning play about Merlin and King Arthur. Some will die; let them. Some will live; may they live forever…

The evil that descends into the hearts of men is both from and becomes the world. Merlin has witnessed it and can never forget it; it would be unwise for him to even try to.

Taken to Tusk – An off the wall comedy

OFF THE WALL comedy

TAKEN TO TUSK – AN OFF THE WALL COMEDY

Rene McBean is a cantankerous, leaden-legged, old woman who fell out with her daughter Wanda some years back, which resulted in her granddaughter Sharon staying with her nan. At that time Sharon had an imaginary friend – Trunky The Elephant – which, unbeknownst to Wanda, has evolved since, to the point where she now thinks she is Trunky, made worse by the fact that Rene’s neighbours Ethel (computer savvy busybody) and Hector (amorous lothario) come around to watch her perform. There is no TV in the house and they like nothing better than to sit down and watch Sharon perform as Trunky in this off the wall comedy.

Wanda’s raison d’etre, however, is to try and ‘cure’ Sharon so that she leaves the home and Wanda can ‘inveigle her way back in’ so that Rene’s wealth will be re-distributed, she hopes, to help her and her new boyfriend – unfunny comedian Mikey Strange – set up a Comedy Club. To help her plan along, Mikey transforms into Dr Michael Strangue, an eminent doctor in the field of ‘curing people with imaginary friends etc’, using his ‘comic skills’ to ad lib to suit the ever-evolving situation. The plan, however, fails soon after it starts as Sharon’s own raison d’etre soon surfaces, which makes everyone face up to their own existences.

Ultimately it is Rene who is made to face just what has made her the mean-spirited woman she is today and how her relationship with Wanda was coloured by her own marriage breakdown and, come the end, all three McBean women realise what has happened to their lives because of either the way men have treated them, or how their personalities have been without men around, which leaves Mikey, in a way, the chance of becoming a husband, a step-father and a son-in-law all in one fell swoop.

LOVE, NORMAN – A DRAMA FOR FOUR ACTORS ABOUT SUICIDE, FAMILY AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES WITH THAT

When Estelle decided to ‘dump’ her ill father Frank on her brother Norman for a few days while she would be out of town, she initially had no idea that a visit to Norman’s apartment would end up being the intervention, reckoning, counselling, cleansing and reunion session that the family didn’t plan for but certainly needed. Without a mother, Estelle would go on to overcompensate for the lack of one, Norman would lose his nerve without her presence in his life and their father would blame Norman for her death. In Love, Norman, a drama for four actors, Estelle and her family’s dysfunction are exposed in a major way all the while happening in Norman’s tiny apartment…this is Norman’s, not Estelle’s story after all. And in keeping with the theme, it is Norman’s attempt at suicide, homosexuality and alleged son, Jerome which the play reveals to us all and grapples with in the most sincere way.

This is him, this is Norman and he sends his love. A beautifully written drama that is both challenging and human at the same time.

Prelude to Murder – British Whodunit Script

British whodunit script

PRELUDE TO MURDER – BRITISH WHODUNIT SCRIPT

Well-deserved holiday? Check. Beautiful apartment in the Canary Islands? Check. Some much needed R&R? Double check for both R’s. Good friends, James and Ollie are supposed to be enjoying their time on holiday. It is also the perfect opportunity to catch up with some friends who’ve also taken to the Canaries (though Ollie is somewhat ambivalent to them). That is until tragedy strikes. Ollie has been murdered and for a hot second it seems that James might be a key suspect in this British whodunit script.

Less than a few hours after James is questioned by investigating officers, when none other than Ollie himself walks into their shared apartment. It seems someone has been murdered but the police have no idea who. In this two act comedy-drama not all is as it seems as the mystery unfolds to reveal ghosts from the past, obscurities of the present and the guilty feet that will try their luck, dancing into the future.

It isn’t how you’re murdered but how you’re not.

THE VAMPIRE DRUDGERIES – TEEN COMEDY PLAY ABOUT A REBELLIOUS VEGETARIAN VAMPIRE

In this teen comedy play, Anton, the “son” of Count Dracula and his bride, is celebrating his birthday. Of sorts…

It’s not quite a birthday. It is, essentially, the day he died and was reborn a vampire. It’s known as his “Deathday”. In ‘The Vampire Drudgeries’, a comedy in one act, we see that for every growing teenage vampire their greatest wish on their “Deathday” is freedom!  This isn’t an uncommon wish, whether you’re a  ‘so called bloodsucking monster’ or an ordinary  human teen.   The freedom to go where he wants and do what he wants.  How about eat what he wants?  Well…..Anton is part of a  coven including; zombies, witches, werewolves and even the Frankenstein monster, that has to live by ‘vegetarian’ rules, thus the freedom to truly accept his true nature would be priceless.

Luckily for Anton, the omens may just be in his favour. Unfortunately, for the rest of us that is not a good sign.

The rules became as unreal as those whom they were imposed on. Unreal, unimaginable and undead.

ASCORBIC ACID FREAK – DARK COMEDY PLAY ABOUT HIV

It’s the late eighties and Mark is infected with HIV, a new supposedly lethal virus that affects the immune system. Mark, a typical gay man living with this new form of 1980’s plague, has begun to invest in all sorts of cures from taking a huge volume of ascorbic acid every day (to boost his immune system) to paying a quack doctor known as Dr Purgess to cure him with all manner of weird and wonderful drugs. Dr Purgess does not believe in the power of Ascorbic acid at all and instead arrives regularly armed with the latest cure all drug in this dark comedy play about HIV AIDS.

Mark’s housemate and companion Stephan both loves Mark and tolerates his hypochondria (which may not be unfounded) and tries to get Mark out and away from dwelling on his health all the time. Enter Wanda and Julie from Mark’s old theatre days who offer him a chance to get back on stage, something that would definitely take his mind off of everything.

But their plans may just be put on hold by Dr Purgess’ latest cure, which may be just the opposite!
