343 UNION STREET – COMEDY SET IN BROOKLYN

Gary and C.J. are just two regular guys from Brooklyn who, inspired by the hot day and the beer they’re drinking, decide that they are going to write a play. C.J.’s friend, Holly is currently in a play which to all accounts sound terrible, and they’re convinced that they could write something at least a little better than that one in this comedy set in Brooklyn.

After all, who knows what inspiration may just walk around the corner? For example, there’s Vinny, the ex boxer who lives in the same building. He went out every night and got beat up , just so he could support his sisters.  That’s a great story.  And how about the creepy old lady who lives in the building? She’s got to be known as “Killer” for a reason.  And the homeless guy on the corner? Rumor has it he’s the landlord’s brother and had it not been for a little incident, he would have been the landlord and not his brother. Plenty of material there!

Or they could just go to the store for more beer…

South african comedy scriptscomedy thriller script

In this comedy thriller script, a group of friends get together to play their regular poker game. But one of the group of friends who lives in the same apartment block is mysteriously missing. The group is quite worried about him as he lost his wife recently and since then he seems to be suffering from a lot of anger and depression. They are naturally concerned that something may have happened to him, but they would never have imagined that at that very moment he was holding a burglar hostage in his apartment…

Don’t knock has been staged by The Franklin Players as part of their annual one act play festival, and by The Durban University of Technology in 2015.
