THE GREAT INCAN TREASURE OF CONFUSION – PLAYS FOR HIGH SCHOOL

When the notorious pirate Captain Kill finally finds the treasure of his dreams, he attempts to seize it and take it to his ship. However as he attempts to leave, his arch nemesis Captain Gravy Bones arrives claiming the treasure for his own. It seems as though they will have to fight for it, until an ancient witchdoctor appears commanding them to end their bickering. He devises that they race from Tortuga to Cuba and back, and whoever wins will get the treasure. The two pirates agree to go along with it, but don’t intend to play fair. The pirates sabotage, ambush, team up with other pirates, black mail, and fight each other to win. But little do they know, the witchdoctor is keeping them away from the treasure for his own reasons. Join the crews of Captain Kill and Gravy Bones as they battle each other and race for “The Great Incan Treasure of Confusion.” Plays for high school students and audiences.

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.

KILLERS WITH BENEFITS – FUNNY CRIME SCRIPT (OR – WHO IS ABOUT TO DO IT)

It’s a dark and stormy night, and the young, attractive, married Mandy is all alone at home (except for her security guard and live in maid, of course) sipping a long island iced tea when the announcement comes over the radio. A dangerous convict has escaped and is at large in the area. A moment later, the lights go out and somebody unknown takes her hostage. He’s armed, soaking wet and … well not quite as dangerous looking as you’d expect.

Featuring everything you’d expect from a funny crime script. A body in the bathtub! An escaped convict! A philandering husband! A cheating wife and her lover! A nefarious plot by more than one party to get rid of the other and by the end of the play, utter chaos.

Genre: Comedy, funny crime script

Type: Short two-act play

Length: Sixty minutes

Cast: Eleven: 4F, 7M

Ages of the actors: Adult

Suitable for: To view – all ages. To perform – adult but could be done by older teens

Set: Living room of an upper-middle class family. Furniture reminds one of IKEA –functional, minimalist, and characterless. Two watercolor paintings on the wall are an ostentatious attempt at emulating “The Water Lilies” – A failed attempt at best. Stage right, an over-sized, frosted glass door, is the main entrance door to the house. Three other doors upstage open into the kitchen, the master bedroom, and a guests’ bathroom. Two big windows, one close to the entry door reveals a fichus hedge in the distance, and the second window between two doors shows a street lamppost and a part of the hedge. Floor-length curtains hang on each side of the windows.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 – chaos at the end of the script
