Ascorbic Acid Freak – play about HIV AIDS

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!

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.

Ejected – Two-act comedy about a video store

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!

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…

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.

THIRDS – SUBURBAN SATIRE PLAY ABOUT INHERITING A HOUSE

Muriel Tuck, a quirky widow who succumbs to a burst aneurysm, has left her estate to be divided equally among her three adult daughters. The oldest, Delilah, is the executor of the will and the mother of three young children. She intends to sell the sisters’ girlhood home and to divide the proceeds between them. This plan is amenable to the middle daughter, neurotic librarian Olivia, whose primary concern is family harmony. But the youngest daughter, Maya, still lives rent-free in her late mother’s house, and refuses to leave. Instead, she begins constructing a brick wall across the living room—separating her one-third from the two-thirds belonging to her sisters. Maya acknowledges that her sisters may sell their parts of the house—“like a lopsided duplex”—but she refuses to give up her portion, and its “lifetimes of memories,” under any circumstances in this suburban satire play about inheriting a house.

Enter Phyllis Hofmeyer. Phyllis, a former schoolmate of the Tuck sisters, wishes to purchase the house because she wants her own daughters to have “as wonderful a childhood” as she imagines the Tuck girls enjoyed as children. She is so determined to purchase the property that even Maya’s fabrications regarding the calamitous condition of the house—infestations of fire ants and bedbugs and termites, the tale of a fourth sister murdered by an escaped baboon, etc.—prove unable to dissuade her. But as Phyllis’s motivations become clearer, and increasingly more disturbing, Maya is not the only Tuck daughter who begins to have second thoughts.

Thirds offers a satiric romp through suburbia, and a heartfelt, if zany, account of one family’s efforts to make the best of life’s plenteous surprises. It is intended to be off-beat, provocative and fun.

Other plays by author Jacob Appel – The Mistress of Wholesome – one act comedy where Mistress takes on Wife

Author: Jacob Appel

Type: Two-act play

Genre: Satire play

Cast: 4F

Ages of the actors: Late twenties to early thirties

Suitable for: Adults to perform, all ages to watch

Length: 90-110 minutes

Set: The entire play takes place in the combination living room / dining room of the Tuck residence in an upscale suburb of New York City. One door exits to the garage stairs, the other to the kitchen and beyond. Neither the garage nor the kitchen are visible. Those who favor realism might furnish the stage with a damask sofa stacked high with pillows, an assortment of armchairs, a rocking chair, cluttered bookshelves, armoires filled with knickknacks, a dining room service beneath a chandelier, and a crescent-shaped glass coffee-table of the variety that was fashionable during the 1970s. A tablecloth should cover the dining room table; a bouquet of flowers sits in a vase on the tabletop. High budget productions might include a piano—although no one in the Tuck household has played a piano in many years, nor ever played one well. Above all, the room should appear “lived-in”: pizza boxes open on the coffee table, old board games piled high on the sofa. Also gardening supplies, an easel, maybe works of sculpture in progress. In short, this is what happens when a free-spirited twenty-seven year old takes over a house from a middle-aged matron.

THIS SEAT’S TAKEN – ONE ACT ROMANTIC COMEDY ABOUT OCD

Every day, every single day, Leo gets up, washes up, gets dressed by pulling items of clothing from his wardrobe from day specific sections, heads to the library, selects one book and heads to the coffee shop where he reads and finishes the book, while enjoying their house brew in this comedy about OCD. This is his morning routine. This is what he knows and this is what he likes… or at least it’s what he thinks he likes. When Maya decides to join Leo for coffee, unexpectedly, one morning, Leo quite honestly has no idea what do with her. Putting his routine at risk is some random woman who offers him something besides the house brew to taste, asks him questions about his reading material he can do without and has the audacity to poke at his sanity, sense of adventure and tolerance for those things that throw him off. Nonetheless, Maya’s endearing (or determined) qualities result in the unlikely duo forming a bond close enough that she becomes a part of his schedule. Just as he gets comfortable with the idea of her being around she throws him for a loop when she asks him to accompany her to a play and one morning, Leo decides to buy the tickets…

The seat’s taken but by all means, let the eclectic, confused and curious looking woman take it.
