SINGLES FOREVER – AFRICAN COMEDY SCRIPT ABOUT MARRIAGE

A wedding is nothing but the union of two people: body and spirit. For Omotola, the fiancée of Kantanka, she wants his bank account, his time, his independence… Simply put: all that he owns he believes should remain his own, regardless of him being married. The boys agree that Kantanka should continue to be true to himself, in fact, they can hardly believe he’s defied their rule of brotherhood, to get married. In Singles Forever, an African comedy script, the time before a soon-to-be-bride and soon-to-be-husband get married, is put into focus and is as raw as ever. This comedy with three acts, shows us what happens when a firecracker (Omotola) partners with an aging lion (Kantanka) and if the forces around them (the boys, a lawyer, an ex-girlfriend family, etc.) can influence them enough to change their minds. You do know marriage is for ‘good,’ right?

Although written for an African cast, this play has international appeal and could easily be performed in any country.

THE OUTLAWS – COMEDY ABOUT THE

IN LAWS

When good in laws go bad, it gets ugly!

Meet Jill and Michael; an average young couple who plan to get married soon – next month to be precise…but not if Jill’s father Dick and her grandfather Henry can stop it. You see they are not too
fond of Michael. They are not too sure what it is they don’t like about him, perhaps his soon-to-be profession (you see dear Michael’s studying theology) or maybe it’s his bishop for a father, Tom,
and/or his equally bishop-y wife, Connie. In two acts, Henry and Dick are dead set on taking this marriage down and soon enough, Tom ends up joining forces with them. With their wives Beth,
Emily and Connie caught in the middle, every single parental figure in this comedy about the in laws is taught a lesson they should very well know by now: young love, it cannot be stopped.
