Mother – A comedy about being politically correct

comedy about being politically correct

Mother – A comedy about being politically correct

Everyone’s mother has their flaws, their embarrassing habits that make you wish you were anywhere else but in their company. But when one decides to fall in love with a person of colour, and you want to bring them home to meet your mother, who just happens to be the most politically incorrect person on the planet, it’s important that you have that little conversation before introducing them to the love of your life. In case he runs away screaming – never to return. A one act comedy about being politically correct and maybe more so than we need to be!

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.

Who..You..Me..Someone – funny whodunit script

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

ten minute comedy about relationships

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.

THE ASTOUNDING WORKS OF SIMON TROUT – HILARIOUS TEEN ONE ACT

When Karen Carter has yet another fight with her family and she storms into her room, the last thing she expects to find is a fully grown good looking guy sitting on her bed. After getting over the shock of this (and passing out a few times), she confronts him. It turns out that he is actually a magical creature, called a Sprite, but who is generally known as ‘Simon,’ whose power is to restore balance to those who have called for help.

He assures her that he can change her family to the way she would like them to be. This appeals and so he waves his magic hand over the unsuspecting family who are sitting down to dinner. A series of very funny identical scenes follow in which they are at first made more honest (doesn’t work), more loving (too much!) more affectionate (OMG) and so on until they reach the inevitable conclusion in this hilarious teen one act script.

Villains Incorporated – Award Winning Teen Play

award winning teen play

VILLAINS INCORPORATED – AWARD WINNING TEEN PLAY

Three high school students decide that they would like to make chaos out of the upcoming school Halloween Dance, in Villains Incorporated. Sounds like a typical tale of your average
teenage trouble-makers, right? Wrong! In this comedy, Nefarious, Nemesis and Notorious are just about as un-typical as three teenagers can get; you see they are villains. They were
“born” to create chaos; to nurture it, dote on it, watch it evolve and help it come to life! In fact disorder is such a firm part of their make-up that they would go as far as to be in cahoots with one Virtuous (quite literally, an upright – or uptight? school mate, who would like to lead them onto a more righteous path) in order to achieve their wickedness. In this play though, it isn’t the obvious guess at who learns the moral lesson but it definitely is the more fun choice.

One small step for juvenile delinquents, one giant leap for Villain-kind!

Villains incorporated received 3 Superior ratings out of three at the VBCPS One Act Play Festival in 2015. This is the highest rating possible.

A MAYOR FOR DIXIE – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT RUNNING FOR MAYOR

Mr Pope will do just about anything to become Mayor of Dixie. And why not? He’s always had plenty of money, so a large expensive campaign will do the trick. He’s also always gotten exactly what he wants from life and this time, it’s his opponent’s wife, who is feeding him covert information, as well as, um…other things. The thing is, although he has a sixty percent majority, he can’t help being just a teeny bit concerned that his opponent, Mr Crance may just beat him, by being just the bleeding hearted sucker that the public loves in this one act comedy about running for mayor.

He has just a bit of scandal about the very same Mr Crance, which just might tip the odds in his favour…

A puzzle for two – a philosophical play

philosophical play

A PUZZLE FOR TWO – A PHILOSOPHICAL PLAY

Two witty individuals in a void try to make sense of their selves and each other. They come across a cryptic message which they interpret as a calling, one which leads them to an outburst of discussion and debate about the meaning of most everything in this philosophical play.

As far as what we know, one thing is clear: there should be a fine line between reason and result, in every sense of those two words. That line, that definite line between cause and effect, seeing and
believing, mind and matter, that line informs the discussion between one and oneself in ”A Puzzle for Two.”

In one riveting, meditative session, the mind probes its consciousness and vice versa as person tries to understand itself in and out of its particular circumstances. It is a conversation unlike any other; necessary for the person, futile for both the mind and its self awareness and naturally, alive with
possibility.

An experimental piece with questions and snark remarks. A brief snappy tale of two existentially hungry beings. One thought starts where the last one ended. This play is great for students of philosophy or for drama students who like a philosophical approach.

The question is the question itself.

The three unwise men – Spoof on Nativity plays: The REAL bureaucratic story

spoof on nativity plays

THE THREE UNWISE MEN! – SPOOF ON NATIVITY PLAYS: THE REAL BUREAUCRATIC STORY

Once upon a time, a baby boy was born in Bethlehem. And everyone was very, very late for it.

Mary and Joseph were late, because they got held up in traffic; but actually, they had left late because Mary had nothing to wear. The wise men were late because they were arrested for having an expired camel license. (Luckily they escaped and made their way to the stable) The shepherds were late because someone forgot to turn on the star above the stable. The Angel Gabriel, however, was early. Being divine, he doesn’t suffer from the side effects of bureaucracy.

This is a spoof on the events leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ. Guaranteed to annoy everyone including Australians and Englishmen, Jewish people, Muslims, Christians and, in particular, Catholics, Zoroastrians, Hindus and Confucians. It should not annoy Shintos or Buddhists. It will also annoy trade unions, civil servants, policemen, customs officers and shepherds.

For everyone who enjoys the ”Carry On” films and ”The History of the World,” this play smacks of them.

Antigone – Greek Tragedy play

Greek tragedy PLAY

ANTIGONE – GREEK TRAGEDY PLAY

Shortly before Oedipus’s death, his two sons, Eteocles and Polynices quarrelled over who was to rule Thebes. Polynices sought help and support for his claim to the throne and requested Oedipus’s blessing, but Oedipus was appalled at the behaviour of his sons and cursed them both, a curse that each would kill each other. Eventually Eteocles ruled Thebes alone and Polynices raised an army and attacked the city. Eteocles with the aid of the brothers’ uncle Creon resisted the attack, which resulted in the brothers meeting in combat in this Greek Tragedy play.

A Greek tragedy play about two sons of Oedipus both seeking to succeed their father. Their sister, Antigone, defies her uncle, a leader out of touch with the people who has decreed that her traitorous brother should go unburied and therefore find no rest in the afterlife. Ultimately, her and her uncle’s actions have tragic outcomes.
