SECOND GLANCE – HOUR LONG ONE ACT PLAY

It was a long time ago, Sam was still a kid, when he lost his grandmother, Amelia, to a car accident. His grandpa and best friend Jimmy was too drunk and had to be picked up by Amelia at the bar. She never made it to the bar and none of Jimmy’s kids or grandkids (including Sam) have paid him any attention since. It’s a compelling premise, right? In fact Sam intends to use it for his book. Only snag is that he won’t get published without Grandpa Jimmy’s side of the story being told too. It’s time for Sam to take a trip back home and hear Grandpa Jimmy out. Sam will likely run into his ex-girlfriend too and the truth of it is that he cannot fathom what other facts lie waiting for him. The good, the inevitable and the ugly truth in this  hour long one act play.

SPACE SHENANIGANS – CHILDREN’S COMEDY PLAY SCRIPT

There are two things one must embody to survive in space: an allergy to philosophical nearsightedness and a finely tuned survival instinct. The crew on the space ship in Space Shenanigans, a one act children’s play, have these attributes and then some. After taking unexpected fire from another ship, the Captain has suspicions of insubordination from his crew and the stench of a rat is not too far away. It’s good old fashioned mutiny on the mother ship!  Pity that the rat can’t smell itself in this children’s comedy play script.

Anything goes, out there!

Maya from Madurai – one act drama about drugs

drama about drugs

MAYA FROM MADURAI – ONE ACT DRAMA ABOUT DRUGS

Maya was a dealer. A drug dealer. He grew up in Madurai under the tutelage of hippie-type parents. They loved him. They still do and he does too. He saw them smoke it once and only once. That’s all it takes. That’s all it ever really takes. One go, one take in one act. They were smoking. Cannabis. He’d seen them that one time but they seemed to be accustomed to it. Cannabis, that is. It became Maya’s bread and butter. He lived for it and would surely die for it too. This is Maya and this drama is his story. From one puff to a life wasted in this short one act drama about drugs.

Maya from Madurai is an Indian play written by Naren Weiss. The play explores the life and death of a drug dealer, and marked the directorial debut of actress Pooja Devariya. It premiered at the 2013 edition of the Short and Sweet Festival in Chennai, India; where it won the Play of the Day award. Three days before script submission, director Devariya called former classmate Weiss and asked him to write something, describing what she had in mind.

The play subsequently toured the country as a part of The Park’s New Festival in 2013. South Indian theatre troupe Stray Factory took the one act play to six Indian cities, with four other short plays.The original production starred Venkatesh Harinathan, who also translated the play.

SNOW IN JULY – COLLECTION OF ONE ACT PLAYS

A collection of one act plays by American playwright James Campbell. From the comedic absurd to the dark and sinister, these plays are both thought provoking and enjoyable to stage.

Hossback: This satirical off the wall comedy rips off typical cowboys from the old west, or at least modern society’s idea of what cowboys actually were like by taking an over the top view of them. From the way they loved their hosses like real women, to their predilection for hanging ‘criminals’ of an description to their manner of speaking – all those cowboy traits we are so fond of are chewed up and spat out again.

Murder in the asylum: The patients and the staff in the local lunatic asylum are getting murdered one by one until there’s only two men standing. One of them’s the murderer…. But, since they’re mad as hatters, they both think it isn’t them.

Sunset on the Potomac: Under absurdia, but poignant comedy about a music teacher and her family, her loves, life and children at the end of which a dark twist is finally revealed.

Baboons: It’s the time of the Romans and those annoying Christians (sorry Baboons) keep getting in the way! Should they kill them like wild boars and baboons? Or do they put on a play?

First to see the lights go on: A drama about post natal depression and its consequences. When Frank meets Arlene at the bus stop and they strike up a conversation, Arlene seems both child like and innocent. But her innocence hides a deathly secret.

Jumping the league: A comedy for a small cast. A priest (who has a foul mouth) and his best friend in 1960’s Pre Vietnam have both decided, and chosen this day to tell each other that they are literally both ‘jumping the league’ and leaving their old lives behind forever.

The Restaurants are Screaming: In this period drama set at the end of the second world war, Ludwig has been living with his daughter, Marcia and his son in law, Joe for the past three months. The play focuses on an abusive father, who now he is old, struggles to understand the consequences of his actions as well as the effect he has on other people. The play draws parallels between his two adult children freeing themselves from their abusive father, the death of the old way of life and the rebirth of the new way of life as the allies win the war in 1945.

Style: A drama about a rough group of factory workers on the line and the day they get the news their factory is closing and their work is gone. It’s all they’ve ever known.

The Watch Below: A group of sailors on a boat in the war are isolated due to an outbreak of deadly meningitis. It’s a tension filled situation as the sick man is at first missing then aggressive and no one can get away.

TWO COUSINS AND A PIZZA – TEN MINUTE AMERICAN PLAY

In ”Two Cousins and a Pizza” Mikey’s in town from Chicago and for Johnny, it’s just like old times. There’s nothin’ like grabbing a good, old fashioned New York City pizza and for the cousins, there’s no question that Chi-town don’t cut it in this regard. New York City pizzas are in a league of their own and that’s a fact that even a non-native would understand well. From the texture of the dough (thanks to the city’s water) to the 45cm diameter slice; it’s authentic, it’s simple and it’s New York, baby!

So when Johnny’s cousin starts tucking into his slice with knife and fork in hand, it’s not a problem, it’s a catastrophe! How dare he? In this ten minute American play, Johnny attempts to rehabilitate Mikey so that he can snap out of it and use his God-given hands to enjoy a meal meant to be relished the only way it can (according to Johnny).

If you take the boy outta New York, well maybe then…. he shouldn’t come back.

THE WILTING PRESS – TWENTY MINUTE PLAY ABOUT LIFE AND HELPING OTHERS

Imagine if you had a problem, one that you couldn’t find a solution to. You don’t want to ‘look for help’ at this stage, preferring to try to sort it out yourself. What if you then went for a walk in the park?  On a bench a Wanderer jovially sits with a tattered book in this twenty minute play. The book is a wilting flower press full of the wanderer’s memories.  You sit down. You talk about love, family, life, and what it means to have a conversation that matters.

Three strangers encounter the Wanderer. Burdened by their respective circumstances, each Stranger shares their time and woes with the Wanderer, hoping to move forward.  And so the Wanderer, armed with words and a wilting press, mends these disillusioned hearts with one phrase: “Care to share your troubles?”

The wanderer asks only for a flower for their press from each stranger in return.  Will we ever find out why the Wanderer helps these people? Perhaps not. But maybe that isn’t important.

CHILDISH AUTHORS – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT THE CLASSROOM

You’re an author. You’ve written a book for children that you think they’ll love. So when the local school invites you to a book reading for nine year olds you jump at the chance. Poor you. You should never have done that. Apparently your book about modern moms with nannies and dads who drive SUV’s isn’t quite what you thought it was. The kids are quick to point out that there was no way that Holly would have paid for an ad to hire her own nanny and the fact that the mom posts pics of herself on the internet is obviously completely inappropriate for a children’s book in this one act comedy about the classroom.

Luckily their teacher has wised up after a year with these little brats and she knows just what to do to fix it. And it doesn’t involve raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

When Andrew and Andrea set their kids, Fran and Francis down at the table to talk about something important, the kids naturally assume their parents are going to get a divorce. After all, they have been fighting an awful lot. So it comes as a huge shock when their parents inform them that, yes, they are legally separating, but, no, it’s not from each other, but from their kids. After all, the kids are the source of the problems they’ve been having, really. Without them, they’d have more money and even be able to go on that holiday they’d always wanted. Of course they’d have to move out. Who?  Why? Well, Andrew and Andrea are really attached to the house so it should be the kids that go. Simple? Of course it is!
