WHERE’S MR M? TWO ACT SCIENCE FICTION PLAYSCRIPT

science fiction playscript

Is it a conspiracy? Or just a product of an overactive imagination? In the United States, a secret corporation exists whose sole aim is to to foster the United State’s utter dependence on fossil fuels.

They’re greedy, corrupt and have absolute power. To do whatever they want. They control the government. And they’re building vast underground concentration camps connected by a railway network in which to incarcerate all opponents. Or are they? Workers on the project who become suspicious or even curious disappear without a trace as do many of their contacts outside the project. Other contacts are subjected to physical or mental psychological programming or are harassed by the police. But it can’t be true? Surely? What’s true and isn’t is hotly debated by the characters in the play. But don’t let your suspicions get too public. Or you might just …..

Greg Miller discovers their secret, one  that threatens the existence of the entire human race. But what he does not anticipate is how much of a pawn he has become in the mother of all mass mind control missions. It is up to Greg to save the world although he can barely save his marriage, and as time starts to slip through his fingers he must face the facts that time itself was his undoing long before he knew what he knows now…

Where’s Mr M is a two act science fiction playscript with creepy Orwellian overtones. It shows the possibility of there being something far more sinister than people think out there, governing everyone’s daily lives. The sub-plots contribute to the development of the play as the characters argue amongst themselves as to the validity of their suspicions and fall foul of the plotters. But, is it real or is it a nightmare? Even at the end one is never quite sure. The sub-plots will each strike a chord with different audience members thus generating a lot of robust discussion afterwards.

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.

Doctor Cartise, the ruler entrusts Liberty, a male hating young woman to guard Stephen who remains under their control for months.

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.

BECOMING DISAPPEARED – SHORT SCI-FI PLAY SCRIPT

In this sci-fi play script, set in post apocalyptic earth, the world has been destroyed by nuclear bombs and people have only been able to survive in isolated pockets amidst zones contaminated with radiation. This was only possible with the help of an alien race, the Numina who arrived to help mankind in its lowest hour, and then vanished a few years later.

Mankind has been afflicted recently with a wasting disease – a disease in which you ‘become disappeared.’ The symptoms start with forgetting simple things like your keys, and progress until you can’t even open a door on your own, and then….you disappear.

But the Major, Gabriel Canada has begun to suspect that something is not right with the people who are ‘becoming disappeared.’ People blame the Numina for the disappearances, saying that the Numina are still out there in the radioactive zones, taking people. But too many are vanishing and no one has the answer…

GODDLE – SCI-FI COMEDY SCRIPT

In the not too distant future two earthlings crash land on a planet remarkably similar to Earth. They learn from two natives that the planet, Goddle, is inhabited by a race similar to humans but more developed due to the existence of a substance called Goddlemite. Goddlemite allows the inhabitants of Goddle to communicate telepathically by channelling their thoughts. The unwelcome intrusion by the Goddlians into the minds of the Earthlings leads to much confusion and romantic innuendo, eventually leading to animosity between the Earthlings and Goddlians.

However, the Earthlings learn that Goddlemite can also be used as a power source for their crashed space ship and they hatch a plan to steal Goddlemite so they can return to Earth. Without the power of Goddlemite to read each other’s mind the Goddlians struggle with the need to speak to each other but eventually manage to make their feelings known. When the Goddlians confront the Earthlings about the theft of the Goddlemite, they come to realise that they don’t need the power to read each others’ minds. The Earthlings are able to depart with the power source they need and the Goddlians must learn to cope with the new communication method that involves talking.
