QUESTIONS – TEN MINUTE DRAMA FOR THREE ACTRESSES

In Questions, a ten minute drama for three actresses, Nina has a confession to make to her ‘friend’ Sandra, initially, and Rosie (who is not much of a friend either) as well. If she were honest to herself Nina would conclude two things, the first being: that she has a problem being honest and secondly: that her life is a bit of
a mess. In one hand are the lies and in the other is the mess she’s created with the lies. When both hands have her tied up, the only option she has left is to declare their contents… two days ago.

Well, the brunette stole the blonde’s man and killed him.

American civil war drama

A FIELD OF GLORY – AMERICAN CIVIL WAR DRAMA

This American Civil War drama concerns a Mississippi mother, Rosalia talking with her son, John a Confederate soldier, who unexpectedly returns from the front to see her. He comes burning with questions and a desire to unburden himself about the meaning and the brutality of war as well as unanswered questions about his life before he left. The play follows a long conversation between the two of them. Rosalia owns her own estate with its slaves and John tries to convince her to improve their lives and to give them an education. She loves her son, and she agrees to do what he asks of her for them.

About a third of the way through the play the reader/audience knows (or thinks they know) how it will end but the playwright cleverly diverts the dialogue into a discussion of the morality and economics of slavery and the politics and cost of the war. This is so well done that the denouement is a shock.

This beautifully written play runs for 75 minutes with no interval and with only 2 actors so it will challenge the best players.

BENNY AND BORIS – TEN MINUTE POIGNANT COMEDY

Benny and Boris meet everyday in the park, on the same bench. They play cards. They talk. About life. It’s not the same anymore. Everyone is a schmuck nowadays. Although, that guy from high school, remember him? He was a schmuck then too. Okay – some things just don’t change. Oh well. The thing, though that really bothers Benny, besides the idiot doctor and the fact that he can’t remember what he ate this morning for breakfast, is that his son doesn’t want him to live with him anymore, now that the new baby is here. And who calls their baby Randy anyway? People nowadays, well they just have no clue how to name their kids properly. Or how to look after their parents.

A ten minute poignant comedy with some great funny lines that deals with the sensitive subject of growing older and being best friends.

As Penny’s suspicions of Bob’s unlived life make her more uneasy by the minute, she tries to glue the pieces of what’s been broken back together and at the same time has to find a way to honour Bob’s memory for the sake of the boys and her own good sense. This one act drama explores the loss of a loved-one and the pursuit of contentment.

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!

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 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.
