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!

RATBOY – FAILED SUPERHERO COMEDY SCRIPT

Meet Ratboy – a superhero who absolutely sucks at what he does. Since the age of eight, he began to understand what the rats were saying to him and decided then and there to use his powers for good and save the world. Unfortunately things haven’t quite panned out the way he planned. He’s currently involved in a lawsuit involving a little old lady and her purse, which he removed from her so called assailant, who turned out to be her husband.

His life blows. He’s overweight, in his forties and dresses as a rat. Now he’s in therapy. But will that actually help him? We’ll find out in this failed superhero comedy script.

Meet Donald, a nervous, stammering brand new salesman. It’s his first day on the job and all the salesmen on the floor have been given a task: To be the top seller of the day. One of the main salesmen on the floor called Hudson, takes Donald under his wing to show him the ropes. Although it’s unlikely that Donald will make nearly as many sales as himself, he tells Donald, it’s important to use his first day as a learning experience and to follow and do exactly what Hudson does in this ten minute comedy for a cast of five. Because Hudson knows he’s the best.

But will it be Donald who ends up showing Hudson a thing or two?

THE MIRROR – A COLLECTION OF TEN MINUTE PLAYS

Intended as an evening of dinner theatre or for a charity performance, this collection of ten minute plays combines six stories which are linked by a common theme: A mirror. Old, tarnished and apparently priceless. We follow the journey of the mirror through the evening. From the burglary where the burglar steals it for his wife, to the thrift shop where the wife (who never really liked it anyway) dumped it, to the purchase of the mirror by a rich old lady, certain of its value and antiquity. The old lady passes away and then the mirror gets bought from her estate by a young girl. We then see the mirror in the girl’s apartment, in a shop front window at a travel agent and finally getting sold by two homeless people who are convinced they’ve just pulled off the biggest scam of their lives.

Bar the short introductory piece, each play stands well on its own. rare collection by best selling and award winning American playwright Jean Blasiar. This play is available both in digital and printed format.

CROSSWORD – AWARD WINNING PLAY ABOUT MURDER

A play about murder with a surprising  twist at the end.   Do you know the person, or the parts of yourself you wish you didn’t?

He’s the boy who delivers Maureen’s groceries. That is all. Ben is his name. He’s rather young (23 to be exact), sweet yet slightly annoying and quite nosy. For all his lack of charm, he’s quite harmless to old Maureen and he’s very helpful with her crossword puzzle, amongst other things. He helps with the puzzle and she makes him a cup of tea. She initially tended to rebuff his desire to keep her company a while but she nonetheless appreciates the gesture as she lives alone. She’s lived that way for many, many years now.

Ben found out she lived alone on the last day she saw him. He used that information to his best interests when he asked her to share her living space with him as he was looking for new accommodation. He told her the move was necessary but the truth about his past would soon come to light. Maureen resisted as Ben persisted. He grew hungrier for her approval and she grew wary of his intentions. The rest was, as Ben stated when he tackled the first word of Maureen’s crossword, that day, ‘’Murder.’’

Six students who have nothing to do with each other and who will have to get to know each other over the course of an evening. The students are free to leave at any time, but if they do, they fail the class. All they have is a tent (in a bag), a microwave, some microwave meals and some jars (for the necessary). How will they survive the night?

THE SMITH MOUNTAIN HUNTING CLUB – ONE ACT DRAMA FOR CAST OF 7

This town ain’t like the rest of the USA. This town is strictly regulated by the mayor himself. You see, a few years back he passed some weird law that nobody was allowed to own or use a gun, ‘cept if you were part of law enforcement or the Smith Mountain Hunting Club. Now, the Smith Mountain Hunting club is pretty exclusive. There’s just a few of us. You see, you got to be able to shoot well to be here. About three miles away, there’s a valley with bird nests. All you have to do is shoot one of them mid flight. Now, they’re fast. Real fast. But if you can do that, you’re in. A gritty one act drama for cast of 7 actors.

Now today, we have another tryout. This time it’s young Jacob, a troubled youth just recently released from juvenile detention. The club is divided about whether we should give him a chance, knowing his record. But the rules are clear. If he can kill that bird, he’s in.

script about a marriage falling apart

TRANSCENDENTAL EXERCISES – DRAMA SCRIPT ABOUT A MARRIAGE FALLING APART

In Transcendental Exercises we are introduced to the Goodall family. Harold – a surgeon, his wife Louise and their soon-to-be divorced son Albert. Harold is a forthright and practical man, void of any
agendas, Louise is, well, special or rather, one who would find ease in even the most uncomfortable situations, while their son Albert walks and talks according to the wisdom of his own inner voice (a
sign to some of madness) in this drama script about a marriage falling apart.

Perhaps the madness within is what attracted Albert to his soon-to-be ex wife Jennifer who pays the Goodall family one last visit before she makes her grand exit. As most young women are, Jennifer is volatile, passionate, mischievous, emotional, impetuous and fearless (a perfect villain) and she has one last seed to sew in the lives of the ‘’family’’ she was once a part of.

The seed is one of doubt. For it only takes the tiniest dose to set an entire world on fire. A dose that might confirm Louise’s hunch that her husband’s relationship with her daughter-in-law is
inappropriate, a dose that might get Harold thinking seriously about the random men who visit Albert, a dose that may confirm Harold’s suspicions about Albert’s character as one that is weak and
insignificant. It is the last card that Jennifer will play and she won’t even be around to see the consequences of her dalliance with said, doubt.

To call their lives a mess would be unreasonable. To call it human nature, would be logical.

Transcendental Exercises has been produced at the Corner Theatre in Baltimore. I feel this play is the very best play of George’s we have published on Off The Wall Plays.
