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!

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!

Tribute to Mother Mangalam – Malaysian Screenplay

TRIBUTE TO MOTHER MANGALAM – MALAYSIAN SCREENPLAY

Our children are given less respect than they deserve. It is the same with our women. The acknowledgment is both the credit and the honour of which our worthy have been denied.
A pity, for the child sees truths that the world rarely shows and a woman is able to interpret them.

Such is the sentiment in Tribute to Mother Mangalam, a short Malaysian screenplay, following the life of Mangalam. Mangalam is a girl who’s practically introspective, a young woman who embraces the hardships of what she sees, hears and feels and a mature and wizened senior, who imparts and still welcomes the relentless wisdom that comes with age; for the lessons are plenty and children will listen.

And in silence the inner child speaks, and in silence the outer child is heard.

LOVELY, DARK AND DEEP – ONE ACT SCIENCE FICTION PLAY

It’s an arsehole world we live in. You know it, I know it, Dee knows it. Dee knows it well enough for her to lose sleep over it. Pondering the injustices and outraged over the indelicacies of
the human spirit, her only question is ‘Why’?

Although he cannot answer for the world and what it has become, Dee’s dad takes it upon himself to explain why things could be worse and how humanity is not completely forsaken. It’s a story he knows all too well, one he has mulled over all his years since it first aggressively presented itself to him. It is a story that, like many others, is at its core, a lesson and ironically; the lesson was never intended for him.

This is the story: Once upon a time, a guy decided to play a practical joke in which a weird unearthly sound would terrify his wife, in order to cure her of her supernatural superstition. Only, little did he know that his joke would lead to another dimension altogether, a dimension dangerous and deadly. The only way out would be to retain his humanity.

The greatest story ever told, will be yours.

The Lady of the Lake Murder – a murder mystery script

murder mystery script

THE LADY OF THE LAKE MURDER – A MURDER MYSTERY SCRIPT

It is the annual meeting of the Shadow Council, a group of powerful immortals headed by Merlin. Among the chartered members of the Council are Morgan le Fay, Queen Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and Niniane, the infamous Lady of the Lake. Also in attendance are three young Wardens assigned to protect an immortal charge. Unfortunately, The Lady of the Lake had been murdered in this Arthurian murder mystery script.

It was (almost) a perfect murder. The tracks were (mostly) covered up. The Lady of the Lake, Nianine had not been seen a while(ish) and the council of Immortals; his serene magicness Merlin, her royal, dark highness Queen Guinevere, her royal lover Sir Lancelot and a beautiful Morgan Le Fay; would (most likely) be certainly happy to hear of Nianine’s death. The happiness amongst the Immortals would (probably) be ten-fold as they are forbidden from killing one another and so none could be charged with the crime. So who did it then? The Inquisitor is about to find out and he’s happy to have us in on the inquisition as the investigation unfolds and a certain Warden may become a ward of the fates.

As the time for the meeting draws near and the immortals begin to gather it comes to light that each of the immortals has a grudge against Niniane, including her own Warden. When it is learned Niniane has been murdered, beheaded with Excalibur, an artifact entrusted to her Warden accusations begin to fly and it becomes the responsibility of the Councils Chief Inquisitor, a stereotypical police investigator, to learn the truth and bring the murderer to justice. The penalty for this crime is death.

The Lady of the Lake Murder is a mystery steeped in Arthurian Lore drawn from the works of Mallory and the Vulgate Cycle.

The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists – An original musical

ORIGINAL MUSICAL

THE RAGGED TROUSERED PHILANTHROPISTS – AN ORIGINAL MUSICAL ABOUT THE WORKING CLASS

(In no particular order) William Easton, Frank Owen, Philpot, Harlow, White, Linden and all of the other working class men of Mugsborough must face everyday knowing one strange yet familiar truth: it is unlikely they will inherit the earth. Work it? Yes. Barter it? Perhaps. Own it? Never.

In The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist, a musical dramedy in three acts, the relationship between occupation and labour is explored in an atmosphere of the possibilities that socialism might present to the working class. Every man struggles to provide for himself and his family and they are pushed to eliminate thoughts of self-improvement in favour of the ideals of all socialist manifestos i.e. The Greater Good.

In between, they freeze to death, never really have a satisfying meal and contemplate – even commit – suicide. It is all about money and the lack thereof until it turns into a tale of humanity and the prospect of living without that too. All the while, the owners, proprietors, capitalists, your (in no particular order, at all) Sweater’s, Rushton’s and the like laugh all the way into their first-class graves… but where does the difference lie really? A grave is still a grave; first class or not.

Here’s to you, the average man, you who work to live and live to work!

WHAT THE OLD GUY SAID – VERY FUNNY SENIOR MONOLOGUE

In this very funny senior monologue, Carney, a typical old guy (complete with all the usual complaints about everything including the government, foreign people and his medication) gets up and, well starts to complain. At first you think he’s just going on a bit. But when it gets to the part about being arrested for being a suspected bomber, as well as for for indecent exposure after being assaulted by a German Shepherd with his pants down in the clinic whilst having a colonoscopy, well you just have to read it. And pick yourself up off the floor afterwards. It’s so funny.

It’s the usual group therapy session run by the Doc, as she is known to her patients. There’s the twins, charging round the room as usual, Val the angry girl (nobody seems to know why), Nic, the antisocial young man and a new guy, Ludovic who just wants his money back as he doesn’t really need therapy, despite being covered in blood and brandishing a knife. It’s also 50% off everything at the local mall and the masses are surging outside in this insane one act comedy script.

When an actor barges in with a clock strapped to his chest that’s ticking down to zero, the group has to decide what to do. Could it be a time bomb? Nobody wants to find out. Nobody wants to be trapped in the room with 5 other lunatics and ticking timebomb either. But do they have a choice?

THE EASY LOVIN’ BLUES – AWARD WINNING DRAMA SCRIPT

There’s a rhythm in lying. Lying to oneself, to others, both lean on a tempo that’s insistent and ever-present. We come to know that rhythm by the most convenient means; by way of our hearts. Like Naurean who inherited a complex from her mother, one that forces her to question her place in the world as she grows older. Or Trumpy, whose addiction to drugs and to Lady Blue is one in the same thing. Or Amanda whose ignorance, and coincidentally,
awareness of the world leaves her confused and disappointed by it. There’s a rhythm to it all, and in The Easy Lovin’ Blues, a drama, we find it’s a beat that is the same for Naurean, Amanda and Trumpy; the same song, over and over in this award winning  drama script.

Set in 1962, the play examines two triangular relationships, one between an illusive 41-year-old woman and her young, manipulative, would-be lover, the second between an aging musician (and drug addict) and his lover, a dominant and disturbed blues singer. The two couples are conjoined by a young woman (the older woman’s daughter), a dreamer who serves as the point both triangles have in common.

Each character is in pursuit — actively or in his/her fantasies — of some dream, and it is the collision of those pursuits that, metaphorically and cinematically, explores the hope, and the loss of hope, that combine in the dreams of urban society of the mid-twentieth century and of the present day.

The Easy-Lovin’ Blues is a 70-75-minute play (performed without intermission) with a cast of 3w and 2m. The play is highly visual and uses music extensively, including one, original, song. One actor must play the trumpet (or saxophone); one actress must sing. The set is a flexible interior/exterior.

Someone is dead. Stabbed in the back on the living room floor, the blood just missing the priceless Persian rug in this funny whodunit script. But who did it? Could it be Mr Who, called in investigate the murder of Mr Someone, the unfortunate victim found lying in the living room by Mr You the night before? Mr Me, who lives in the cupboard can definitely vouch for Someone’s whereabouts. He was in the cupboard with Mr Me the whole evening. Where? Oh, that’s also the name of the sister of the deceased, Mrs Where. So the investigation begins and continues with the appearance of the extremely suspicious Miss Hymn. So to sum it all up: Someone was killed by the suspect, who could be either Me, You or Hymn. When more bodies start to fall, it falls upon the shoulders of Mr Who to unravel it all.

If you think that’s confusing, imagine the confusion of the characters themselves in this funny whodunit.

THE FENCE – TEN MINUTE COMEDY ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS

In this ten minute comedy about relationships, we take a humorous look at the lives of two ordinary suburban couples. They are friends and the girls often go round to visit each other as do the guys.They are both at the time of their lives when it’s time to settle down, get married and have kids. It’s clear that that’s what they all want. Or is it?? Perhaps it’s just what they’re telling each other…

‘The fence’ examines the expectations of the girls and then the guys on the other side of the fence, taking the same situations that happen to the couples from completely opposite and funny perspectives. While explaining what happened to their friends, it can be said that the girls tend to embellish somewhat and the guys tend to over dramatize! But if you think that’s not really the case, why not read this funny script set in suburbia?  You’ll identify with it.

Teru ‘ah – a Jewish political drama script

Jewish political drama script

Teru’ah – Jewish political drama script

How to sow the seeds of a Jewish genocide? It’s a tricky business of course and in Teru’ah it is a business that seems to have taken over the world… or in this case the world that matters. For the seeds of Jewish genocide require the world’s utmost attention. For the Jewish question is a question of everything; a question of Israel, a question for all time, a question of all people and a question of the state of our very own minds.

The real question that these people ask is this: What is a Jew? Not who. What. A simple word that takes the soul or humanity out of the equation. And as in life, this two act drama untangles this question and many others to leave us with the most important one:

What counts as genocide?

Teru’ah is a alternate history play script set in a post 9-11 world that examines the age old question of how genocide can come to pass. It also explores the fictional situation in which Israel is a power that the rest of the world is beginning to rebel against. An explosive script that deals with events leading up to a  new world war.
