Lovely, dark and deep – one act science fiction play

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.

Marvin’s Fetish – Gay drama for two actors

gay drama for two actors

MARVIN’S FETISH – GAY DRAMA FOR TWO ACTORS

For one night you would have yourself a married man. One elegant night he would be yours. Yours to caress, laugh with, divulge your darkest secrets to and indulge in your sweetest fantasies with.
One night. One night only. Marvin had this one night planned out to a T; from the manner in which John would address him and others around them, to what he would wear, Marvin left nothing to be
desired, after all he was paying for the ‘services’ of a flawlessly masculine man; he was paying for the ‘services’ of John.

In this gay drama for two actors, we discover what a burning passion for the popular high school jock has become for old Marvin. But (“but’s” seem to be the norm for these tricky transactions) there was more to it than a payment received when it came to Johns’ M.O. And his M.O. would prove a bit too fabulous for the one night Marvin had prepared.

Marvin’s Fetish achieved finalist status in Tennessee Williams’ prestigious one-act play festival in New Orleans, and has been hailed as one of the most original two-character gay plays that has ever been written and as one of the most clever and unpredictable psychological thrillers of recent times.

 To date, Marvin’s Fetish has enjoyed three performances: The LGBT Center at 208 West 13th Street, New York City, Kairo’s Poety Café at 81 Christopher Street, New York City, and Moonfire (courtesy of Amethyst Nemzoff) at 305 Seventh Avenue, New York City. The last two readings were directed by Alan Baxter and featured DeAngelo Justice (as Marvin Casper) and Mark Parker (as John Corelli).

Lonely Birds and Shadow Figures – Psycho Thriller script

LONELY BIRDS AND SHADOW FIGURES – PSYCHO THRILLER SCRIPT

Jess and Betty work together in a typical office and rub along against each other as coworkers do that spend half their lives together. But both of them are lonely women. Betty is a widow and Jess craves chronic solitude based on her superiority complex and cynical view of the world. So when Jess accepts a bunch of flowers meant for Betty and then in a mean gesture, makes them out to be for herself, she never even considers that the messenger who brought them may have sinister intentions…

Both women are about to find what it is they really yearn for, or rather what they crave will find them in the most disturbing occurrences that infatuation can serve us. And he will follow them and watch their shadow figures as they move through their curtains at night…

Will the rules of right and wrong be clear when Jessica gets what is coming to her? And when she mysteriously disappears, will the principle of karma serve Betty well when she tries to make sense of what exactly happened to her “friend”, Jessica? Finally and more importantly; will anyone really care about the circumstances surrounding her “disappearance”?

SCREAM – ONE ACT SUSPENSE THRILLER

The power is out as Mary Jones enters her kitchen early one morning to prepare breakfast.  She and her husband will discover from their neighbors that what looks like a meteor shower has not only knocked out all electricity but batteries as well as cars and all electrical items.

How long this blackout will last is one of many terrifying realizations as the neighbors try to go about the task of maintaining order (protecting the neighborhood) and taking care of daily necessities (how will they cook, how long before the freezer contents go bad, how extensive is this power disabling celestial occurrence, what about the children away at school, what about world peace).

Doug Jones, seeking that all elusive Pulitizer winning story realizes that this is a golden opportunity.

There is nothing normal about the next few hours as the neighbors try to plan ahead.  The women are quick to want to share what they have with the others on the street; the men cautious about survival.

Herb Smith, the self appointed policeman, envisions robbers from a nearby housing complex about to descend upon them.  As he readies his guns to secure his property as well as his neighbors, a young man who has escaped from a gang related incident in the housing complex is desperately seeking a place to hide.  Mary Smith, alone and frightened, is his victim.

The true traits of the neighbors (Mary, Doug, Sally and Herb) not only come to the fore in this crisis but determine who will survive and who will not.

SCREAM was a finalist in the Tennessee Williams One Act Play Competition in 2014.

THANK YOU FOR SHOPPING HOOCHUM’S BARGAIN BASEMENT – FUNNY THRILLER SCRIPT

This funny thriller script turns the classic horror tale of the young couple alone in their car in a deserted area encountering a frightening or horrific thing on its head. A young couple have travelled to the BAD SIDE OF TOWN to get a coffee maker from Hoochum’s Bargain Basement, as the glass in their one has cracked, and they want to do something AWFUL. They want to replace the new one with the cracked one and take it back for a refund, PRETENDING THAT IT’S THE NEW ONE. SHOCKING!!!

They’ve had to travel across town, as their usual store burnt to the ground recently under VERY MYSTERIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, in which the little old lady who owned the store barely escaped with her life. Rumour has it, however that the little old lady had a graduate student on the side.  On that fateful day he was working in the back of the store, and was very badly burnt in the fire and HE HASN’T BEEN SEEN SINCE…

Rumour also has it that he wasn’t, in fact using the old lady for her body, but for her coupon skills, which she was famed for. She could get a better deal with her coupons than anyone, and he was taking her for all that she knew.

But now that the couple has bought their new coffee machine, they’re about to go for a drive to a very deserted spot where anything could happen…

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…

CARMILLA – STAGE PLAY SCRIPT ABOUT VAMPIRES

The second world war is about to begin. But Laura and her father remain isolated, living in a part of the Austrian countryside all-but-deserted for hundreds of years. When there is a car accident outside the mansion,  and Carmilla, a young women inside the car appears to be in shock, her mother begs them to take the young girl in.  As Carmilla’s health is delicate, Laura’s father allows the Countess to leave her daughter in their care. But her mother never returns. Laura and Carmilla spend every waking moment together and over time, the two girls develop a deep passion for each other.

But the ancient curse that once swept the surrounding countryside returns, leaving almost a dozen young girls dead in its wake. People begin to sicken and waste away, eventually passing into the next world as bloodless husks. There is talk of the family that once lived in the very same  castle, and whose portraits bear a striking resemblance to Carmilla.  People then begin to talk of vampires, as if they are real…

Carmilla is an adaptation of the 1872 novella by the same name (the novella is in public domain since Joseph Sheridan LeFanu died in 1873.)

 Carmilla has had three productions, the first at Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre in North Hollywood in February and March 2014 and then by the Harlequin Players at Cayuga Community College in upstate New York. This latter production was invited to be part of the Theatre Association of New York State Festival where it won four awards–Meritorious Achievement in Direction to Director Bob Frame, Meritorious Achievement in Acting to Edward Gould for his portrayal of Fontaine, Meritorious Achievement in Lighting Design to Rob Fragoman, and Excellence in Scenic Design to Virginia Fennessy. Recently, Carmilla had a third production by the Actaeon Players in Los Angeles in October-November 2015.

TODD – FULL LENGTH DRAMA SCRIPT BASED ON ‘SWEENEY TODD’

“Todd” is based on the infamous character, ‘Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’, yet this story has a more humane approach and the author has depicted Sweeney Todd as a victim of circumstance and of his own vengeance.

It is 18th century England and Todd, a man who used to be known as Pope is sentenced to be transported to Botany Bay, Australia after spending 4 years in prison. He escapes and returns to London, seeking the whereabouts of his daughter Claire whom he has not seen since before his prison sentence. Whilst plotting his revenge, on the Judge who passed his extended prison sentence, Todd sets up as a Barber in Fleet Street, having acquired barber and surgeon skills during his adventures on the high seas. His passion for revenge affects him deeply and he changes into a bitter, cold hearted murderer. He finds his daughter in surprising circumstances, with the help of his lawyer friend, Jonathan, who is unaware of Todd’s change in personality. As for his quest – revenge is far from sweet for Sweeney Todd.
