The Way Out – Two-Act Comedy about Escaping from the Loony Bin

two act comedy about escaping from the loony bin

THE WAY OUT – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT ESCAPING FROM THE LOONY BIN

It could not get any worse. Not only was Steve committed to a sanatorium against his will and (cough) better judgement, he’d lost custody of his only daughter and his conniving wife Genia was
dead set on taking his fortune for herself. It seemed the odds were truly against him as the judge who had him committed (and re-committed) was less reasonable than most, the doctors and
therapists at the coo-coo place seemed hard of hearing and his own sanity was living on a prayer. It was clear to Steve; he would almost certainly rot in Westview Residence unless he did something…
and soon… and drastic! His only option: to put his faith in his fellow ‘prisoners’, create a flawless escape plan and hope the sun shone brightly on the ‘crazy ones’ at Westview.

And Steve’s worst nightmare became his wildest dream in this comedy about escaping from the loony bin!

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.

Witch. Enter Ben (10) and Jesse (13) – two young boys. Not what you would call knights exactly, well, to be honest they are not knights at all but they are boy scouts, thank you very much and honourable even amongst real men.

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.

Author: Mary Long

Type: One Act Play

Genre: One act Comedy

Cast: It can be cast with as few as 11 actors, or it can be expanded to include more. Many of the roles can be adapted for boys or girls. It has been performed by a cast of 18 students from Virginia Beach Middle School.

Ages of the actors: 13 up to 18

Suitable for: Teens

Length: Thirty minutes

Set: A school. Set is at the director’s discretion

Level of difficulty: 6/10 crowd control. A fun play with witty lines which everyone should enjoy.

Hell Froze Over – Comedy Script about Sports

comedy script about sports

HELL FROZE OVER – COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT SPORTS

What are the perfect conditions for every American sports fan’s dreams to come true? Why, a temperature drop, of course in this comedy script about sports.

One so low that OJ Simpson (almost) finally confesses, Fahrenheit so
chilly that Magic Johnson is declared HIV free and thermometers correctly reflecting the icy ‘nature’ of things, to the degree that Tom Brady comes clean about Deflate gate. But this could only be a
reality if the temperature was affected in one place specifically, ahem, hell to be exact. On this day, in this sketch comedy, hell froze over and everything in the sporting world went to shit- AKA ….
mushrooms. So, have YOU ever wondered what would happen if hell were to freeze over? Find out tonight on the Chicago Radio- err – rather from Anchors 1, 2 and 3 in the play, Hell Froze Over.

Don’t hold your breath…No actually, today, feel free to do so!

The fourth wall – one act teen adventure comedy

one act teen adventure comedy

THE FOURTH WALL – ONE ACT TEEN ADVENTURE COMEDY

For those of you that do not know the most important aspect of the moments leading up to the performance of a staged play, LISTEN UP! The fourth wall exists and to all kamikaze’s, beware! Jack,
Jason and Sarah fail to heed this fierce and true warning when they decide to do a bit of exploring on a blank stage, in ‘The Fourth Wall’ – a one act teen adventure comedy.

When the performers discover the kids, they call off their show in the beginning scene and attempt to catch them and take them to the stage manager. When one of the three kids get caught by the performers, the other two kids left must equip themselves with prop weapons and team up with theatre thugs to fight their way through egotistical lead roles, a stunned narrator, epic soldiers, chaotic scene changes and a short tempered stage manager to get their friend back.

In this comedy, a few frivolous minutes of exploration unravel a series of unfortunate events for a show that is already a hot mess. It is up to the Stage Manager to get it together before the show goes on, as he carefully weighs the risk, reward and raucousness of running a revue.

Oedipus the play

OEDIPUS THE PLAY – ADAPTATION OF CLASSIC GREEK MYTHOLOGY – A PLAY SCRIPT

In Oedipus the play, Oedipus infant son of the King of Thebes is abandoned by his parents when advised by the Oracle that he will kill his father and marry his mother. He eventually ends up as Prince of Corinth. Developing the feeling that he does not belong in Corinth he wanders about Greece and meets his (unbeknowest to him but beknownst to us) biological father whom he kills in a brawl. He then goes into Thebes and marries his mother who, miraculously, has not aged while he was growing up. Later a soothsayer tells Oedipus that he has killed his father and married his mother. Oedipus and his mother find this so appalling that she drinks poison and he plucks out his eyes.
