GRACE WILL LEAD ME HOME – HEART WARMING ADVENTURE PLAY FOR TEENS

For Grace, loving and letting go is not an option. The answer to her mother, Rachel’s, terminal cancer is the Giant Squid Curatio. This mythical creature, whose venom holds the cure to save Rachel, has Grace literally cross bodies of water in her quest in this adventure play for teens.

In Grace Will Lead Me Home, Grace and her friends Sam, Dana and Dylan (who are sort of on her side most of the time) embark on a journey to find her squid, putting her at the mercy of ‘young genius’ Carol Bishop, making business deals with the likes of pirates and risking death itself to capture the elusive squid. It’s the power of a dream like this, the dream of a life with her mom and Grace has no choice but to see it through.

THE END OF CLASS – COMEDY SCI-FI SCRIPT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

It’s first period, April 1 in this script for high school students.  The students are sitting in their TV Production/Media classroom waiting for their teacher, Mr Best, to begin the lesson. The bell rings and he leaves the classroom only to return a few seconds later clearly upset. He’s acting very strange, nothing like “cool” teacher the students are used to. Finally he comes out with shocking news that there is nothing out there, outside the classroom. The halls, classrooms, and offices are all empty. Everyone has quite simply vanished. But is it real, is he telling the truth or is it a joke? What should the students do? Who wants to be first to leave? Is this the end?

The Cindy Variations – coming of age comedy

coming of age comedy

THE CINDY VARIATIONS – COMING OF AGE COMEDY

The Cindy Variations is a 95-minute, two-act coming of age comedy about a young woman’s search for love, happiness, professional recognition and, well — love. The play uses a multi-ethnic cast of six (3w, 3m) to play about 45 roles, requires virtually no set and utilizes generally contemporary costumes. There are no unusual technical specifications; simple projections are suggested but lobby cards or the like may be substituted. Its language is very mild and suitable for any community, although the piece is recommended for mature audiences.

The play is narrated by CINDY PESHEK (f: 26) whose story we follow from age eight to the present day. Cindy wants two things out of life: to be taken seriously as an actress and a person, and to be loved. Her problems are two-fold: She is tiny — five feet tall or shorter — with a childlike face — and body: She is “underdeveloped,” about which she is extremely self-conscious. That leads to her second problem: a lack of self-confidence where her relationships with boys (as a girl) and men (as she matures) are concerned. How she learns to overcome that lack, to accept herself and to acknowledge she can be loved, is the play’s throughline.

There is music used in the play available on request. Other full length plays by this acclaimed playwright: The Easy Lovin’ Blues – a  drama.

Reviews:

‘In addition to being rather entertaining, The Cindy Variations by Patterson Dempsey Valdez Starring Cindy Peshek as Herself is also a contender for the longest play name in history. It’s an unorthodox bit of theater, less of a play and more of a monologue paused briefly so other people can talk. It’s quirky, it’s often silly and it does succeed in making you laugh, largely because of the talent of the lead actress.’ – Red Publication, 2016

You are your own worst enemy – Three act American romantic comedy script

American romantic comedy script

YOU ARE YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY – THREE-ACT AMERICAN ROMANTIC COMEDY SCRIPT

A gentle play set in less complex times. Set in a small town in Kentucky in 1949, this American romantic comedy script tells the story of two love-smitten girls pining for the men of their dreams, who, unfortunately, are either too backward in coming forward or have the pick of the girls in the town and can’t decide which to choose. With a bit of encouragement from the cast and some hindrance from an egocentric magician, (a delightful role for some really over-the-top acting,) the girls get their men and (we hope) live happily ever after.

When good in laws go bad, it gets ugly!

Meet Jill and Michael; an average young couple who plan to get married soon – next month to be precise…but not if Jill’s father Dick and her grandfather Henry can stop it. You see they are not too
fond of Michael. They are not too sure what it is they don’t like about him, perhaps his soon-to-be profession (you see dear Michael’s studying theology) or maybe it’s his bishop for a father, Tom,
and/or his equally bishop-y wife, Connie. In two acts, Henry and Dick are dead set on taking this marriage down and soon enough, Tom ends up joining forces with them. With their wives Beth,
Emily and Connie caught in the middle, every single parental figure in this comedy about the in laws is taught a lesson they should very well know by now: young love, it cannot be stopped.

THE FRANKLIN FRANKLIN SHOW – ZANY COMEDY ABOUT A TALK SHOW

His name is Franklin Franklin. He’s a retired boxer who never won any of his fights – all fifty two of them. He’s also the host of a new talk show. It is important to note that Franklin is quite stupid. And when the producer of old Franklin’s show realises this himself, interestingly enough at the beginning of this comedy about a talk show, it’s a steady downhill for the premiere of the show, Franklin (whether he acknowledges it or not) and the producer’s career. Keen to watch this already unsteady ship sink? Then join Franklin tonight as he interviews Debbie of Debbie’s Deadly Diet, inventor extraordinaire Edison (he looks like Einstein), a psychiatrist (Franklin calls her a nut job), an alien who prophesizes the earth’s impending doom and a King of some remote island that Franklin’s supposed to care about – as if! All in one act. Literally.

Here’s Franklin! Shuffling his way onto a set he’ll never see again!

A COUNTRY REUNION – COMEDY ABOUT CHRISTMAS

In this comedy about Christmas and family, Ma and Pa Hawkins, their children; Millie Ann, Billie Jean, Homer and Zeke, the nosy neighbour Miss Abby, Isaac (Billie’s husband), Amos (a cousin or somethin’ like that) and his fiancée Clyde (she ain’t
no man, honey) cousin Virgil, unc’ Jeb, cousin Zelda, aunt Allie, all gather for a true honky tonk, deep fried, southern belles and cowboys, Crooked Creek country Christmas.

It’s a family reunion to rival most when the Highlanders (Martin and Martha) enter the Hawkins’ household, with a detective no less, hell-bent on implicating the Hawkins’ in the crime of stolen Christmas trees, not to mention their prize hog.

But it ain’t just the trees that the Highlanders want… and it ain’t just the trees that the Hawkins might be hidin’. This
holiday, the Spirit of Christmas (and a leetle Moonshine) is workin’ overtime ya’ll!

MERRIWEATHER’S MURDEROUS WEEKEND – A BRITISH WHODUNIT THAT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN

Joan, Maggie, Jane and Annie, who have been solving murder mysteries, for the love of leisure, for twenty years.

Of course the murders are not true crimes – that is before this weekend away at Dafful Hall, at least. Barry Merriweather (host and organiser at Dafful Hall) gets the ladies’ homicidal adventure off to a rocky start but as the escapade unfolds, the ladies and Barry
start to suspect that there is more to the mystery than the mystery of the murder itself – and Barry may not even be to blame for what’s going awry!

Bodies go missing, a very convincing ‘policeman’ strolls into the picture, two thieves prey on the fake crime setup and
a cougar finds a toy-boy in this three-act comedy that puts the ‘bad’ in ‘a badly organised weekend’!

THE WAY OUT – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT ESCAPING FROM THE LOONY BIN

It could not get any worse. Not only was Steve committed to a sanatorium against his will and (cough) better judgement, he’d lost custody of his only daughter and his conniving wife Genia was
dead set on taking his fortune for herself. It seemed the odds were truly against him as the judge who had him committed (and re-committed) was less reasonable than most, the doctors and
therapists at the coo-coo place seemed hard of hearing and his own sanity was living on a prayer. It was clear to Steve; he would almost certainly rot in Westview Residence unless he did something…
and soon… and drastic! His only option: to put his faith in his fellow ‘prisoners’, create a flawless escape plan and hope the sun shone brightly on the ‘crazy ones’ at Westview.

And Steve’s worst nightmare became his wildest dream in this comedy about escaping from the loony bin!

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!
