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.

THE RELEASE OF THEODORE MARLOW – ROMANTIC PERIOD DRAMA SCRIPT

Is death only the beginning? For Theodore Marlow, it is his second chance, his only chance but he is not quite dead… yet. You see Theodore Marlow only just started living. Before he was existing only, and not really living at all in a world where his wife, Elsie, had crowned herself as Queen. Their marriage was only a formality in his eyes, and what exactly she ruled over would ultimately amount to nothing for he did not see her anymore. To him she was as irrelevant as he was to himself.

That is until he met Rebecca. Sure as he was that he’d known her before, this was the first time he had laid eyes on her, in this world at the least. She was everything that he never knew he needed. When she tragically died, he saw her face everywhere haunting him and beckoning him to join her.  Thus Theodore Marlow realised that in death all of our most pressing questions are answered and in life we get to see but not really understand enough of ourselves or of each other.

And so we meet again, My Heart

Parade day – two act drama about Roswell, years later

DRAMA about Roswell

PARADE DAY – TWO ACT DRAMA ABOUT ROSWELL, YEARS LATER

Things could not be worse for east coast pharmaceutical sales Edward Laurens. His life is a disaster – the wife’s left him and he knows he’s going to lose his job.

Edward’s idea to cope, or avoid it all, is drive across the country on route to Californian to his annual sales meetings. And between the east and west coasts, maybe he find himself. That’s a glorious notion.

Alone and wandering through New Mexico the past week, Edward runs his life through his head until he’s so utterly depressed he’s at the end of it. And then he stops at the Flying Saucer Diner in Roswell, New Mexico.

Edward doesn’t know Roswell celebrates its notoriety as the place where a flying saucer crashed years ago, or so the town proclaims through years of hype and cheesy promotion.

His luck could not get any worse; it’s the day of the town’s annual flying saucer parade. He walks into the diner and meets the owner, Buddy. Buddy is the last living eyewitness to the infamous crash. Buddy hates everything about the town’s zany celebration and the parade, and takes Edward to be “one” of them – a crazy UFO fanatic.

The town’s mayor wants Buddy to ride down Main Street in the parade, but Buddy refuses. The town sees him as a stubborn and bitter old man. What no one understands is that he’s no longer sure what did happen that day of the crash. He’s angry that at the end of his life, all he’s become is the last living witness and nothing more.

Then Edward meets Buddy’s waitress, Katie. She ‘s an intriguing small town girl with a string of bad relationships that have not diminished her big dreams – if she knew what they were. She is desperate to leave, desperate to find love, desperate to be loved. There is a spark between the withdrawn Edward and Katie that pushes them both to attempt to try to change their lives.

The play is fleshed out with the comings and goings of various characters that wander into the diner, each with different agendas, from weirdness to cruelty.

In PARADE DAY, the crash, aliens, and the ridiculous circus that envelops the town, become a metaphor about drift and detachment from one another, and our need to be understood. The play brings Buddy, Edward, and Katie to the lines they have drawn in the dirt, opening the door to the possibility for them all to step back across.

Is this seat taken – Award Winning British one act script

British one act script

IS THIS SEAT TAKEN? AWARD WINNING BRITISH ONE ACT SCRIPT

“Acting is attracting” (as said by Jack McFarland) is a statement that Laura and Will believe is their only shot at rekindling the dead flame of what used to be their marriage in this British one act script.

After fourteen years of trying to make it work, Will suggests role playing which Laura agrees to only because she loves him. After all, without the element of love at the centre of the effort they have both made to stay together, Will and Laura would have nothing.

Coincidentally, or maybe not by coincidence at all, in their eventful (and somewhat disastrous) night of role playing they encounter an unmarried couple doing the same thing. Through their meeting with Andy and Carrie, Laura and Will are faced with the reality that
there may very well be one right way to role play (or be married?) and their way might not be it. The odds become favourable for the married couple when the unmarried couple’s experienced role playing backfires randomly, teaching Will and Laura the most valuable lesson of all: you cannot build on anything which was built on nothing to begin with.

OUT ON A DATE – SHORT ROMANTIC DRAMA COMEDY

That’s the thing about living in this day and age – we’ve become dependent on the technology that we invented. Our lives are now on our devices and social media sites, for everyone to see. So much so, that a simple date night turns into a bit of a fiasco for Jack and Margo, who have been together five years. Thanks for social media and a not too careful boyfriend, Margo has found out that Jack has been cheating on her, with her own boss, and plans her revenge and break up with Jack at a local romantic restaurant. A play that can be played either as a drama or as a comedy depending on how it is directed.

The unwitting Jack is about to find out in this short romantic drama is that revenge is a dish best served socially: #revengeontwitter #revengeonfacebook #dateniterevengeoninstagram #cheatersrevengeontumblr!!!!

SHADOWS OF TIME – ROMANTIC SCI-FI SCREENPLAYS

Sci-fi screenplays – Vince Gabriel, a wealthy 25-year-old dreamer falls madly in love with a woman he sees dancing in a video clip on the internet. Problem is the show aired fifty years ago. Vince knows the dancer’s name, Sherrie Evans and that the show he viewed was filmed in Los Angles in the year 1965.

Vince’s older brother, Scott, an eccentric genius who just so happened to invite a time machine, reluctantly agrees to send Vince back to 1965. He tells Vince the machine emits radiation, which only allows two trips for the traveler. A third trip would be deadly. And it wouldn’t be instant. It would take about ten years for symptoms to occur and another three painful years before death.

While back in 1965; Vince meets Sherrie and she also falls madly in love with him. All is going well until Scott, Vince’s brother, comes to 1965 and informs Vince that if he doesn’t return to his own time an accident will occur and Sherri will die. At this time Scott does not know when or where the accident will occur. Nor does he know what kind of accident it will be.

Vince, not wanting Sherrie to die returns to his own time, BUThe is crushed by losing Sherrie and becomes a full blown alcoholic. Scott, in the present time, finally finds out where Sherrie is but will not tell Vince until Vince gets straight. Vince cleans up and he goes to visit Sherrie who is now a 65-year-old Catholic Nun.

Scott finds out where and when the accident, which would have killed Sherrie, occurred. He tells Vince but also tells him he can’t return because of the time travel radiation. Vince decides that even though he will die a horrible death, ten good years with Sherrie is worth it and against advice from Scott returns to 1965.

The Encounter – romantic drama for two actors

romantic drama for two actors

THE ENCOUNTER – SHORT ROMANTIC DRAMA FOR TWO ACTORS

Paul encounters Laura, or rather a slightly tipsy and thus rather bold (or forward) Laura accosts Paul at an art gallery. They’re both met briefly at a dinner in the past and both remember each other. Paul is slightly shy at first, but Laura is so unconventionally forward that he soon warms up to her advances and starts to flirt back. But what will become of their evening?

The Encounter is one of the short plays which form a collection known as Ugly art, many of which have been published by Off The Wall plays.

THE ENCOUNTER was selected for the 2003 Third Annual Pregnant Chad New Plays Festival, Stormy Weather Players in New Windsor, New York and was produced off off Broadway. It was also produced in Los Angeles by Drama West.

5 out of 5 Stars

Art is a subjective creature. One gallery patron sees a monochromatic masterpiece; another sees nothing more than red paint… Back and forth goes the dialogue like a piping hot potato, keeping our attention for the full 75 minutes… It’s a hoot, but perhaps it’s because we catch a glimpse of ourselves in each couple that Red Wine & Canvas resonates so strongly.

period drama romance

YVETTE – PERIOD DRAMA ROMANCE SCRIPT

Yvette is eighteen, and she is a mystery. Nobody can make out whether she is a charming youngster or a wretched jade. She belongs through her mother, a high-class courtesan, as well as through her manners and her customs, to the vortex of the most rapid life of 19th-century Paris. Yet, she lives in that atmosphere of infamy with a calm and triumphing ease as if she suspects absolutely nothing of her mother’s profession, which is either wonderfully profligate or entirely artless. She allures and excites men and at the same time acts like an impeccable virgin. If she is not the most complete monster of astuteness and perversity, she certainly is the most marvelous phenomenon of innocence that can be imagined. Only, this young lady belongs neither to society, nor to the tradesmen’s class, nor to the common people, and she can never enter any of these ranks by marriage. She has only one possible career, a life of pleasure, and she cannot escape her fate.

UNCOVERED – ROMANTIC DRAMA SCRIPT

A man and woman have been living together in a small Chicago apartment. She has been working to pay the bills while he works on a novel, but he’s developed writer’s block, and it’s been eating away at his confidence, and lessening her attraction to him. The rift has gotten to the point where she’s been spending most of her time at a friend’s place.
He goes to see her at work and watches her in a different light as she floats around her restaurant interacting with the customers. Then they go out for drinks, and their passion is rekindling.

We hear them as they ascend the stairs to their apartment, bumping against the walls as they release from each other’s embrace long enough to unlock the door.

Inside we watch as they work out their relationship, one that began with a mutual love of books, one helped to be put back together – and almost taken further apart – by the books in their life.

TWO CATS, NO DOGS! TEN MINUTE ROMANTIC PLAYS

In this award winning romantic comedy script, a man and a woman find themselves at an art gallery, viewing a red (very red) painting. They get chatting to each other and, superimposed on their ‘chit chat’ are their thoughts – that they really and truly like each other and wish that the other would like them back. Their personal thoughts also intrude on what they’re trying to say to each other which leads to the sort of stuttering that happens when people are trying to impress each other. A lovely, funny two-hander script for one man and one woman of any age.
