WHERE’S MR M? TWO ACT 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.
