THE CASE OF IVAN KANE – SERIAL KILLER SCRIPT

When Ivan Kane hands himself into the local police for multiple murders that have just been committed by simply calling 911 and identifying himself as the murderer, the Detective is at first puzzled then intrigued.  Ivan tells his story and a sequence of horrific events unfold, starting with a seemingly innocent drink in a local bar and ending with a surprising twist that Ivan seems to have plotted all along in this serial killer script.

A thoroughly enjoyable script for all those fascinated by the mind of the serial killer from best selling author Naadir Joseph. Read other scripts by Naadir – The Book of Souls – a teen play about some teens who find the book of souls and try to bring people back from the dead.

THE BOOK OF SOULS – SHORT TEEN PLAY ABOUT FINDING THE BOOK OF SOULS

Three teens find the book of souls and decide to use it. Although it is just an ordinary book in appearance, it has the power to bring animals and people back from the dead. They do a trial run, bringing Cameron’s dog, Rex back from the dead. Rex died in a car accident many years ago. They then get the idea to bring Cameron’s mother, Jason’s dad and Sylvia’s sister back from the dead. There’s just a small snag in their plans. The book is owned by Life, who comes back to claim it from the three. Life has the power to take back the souls revived from the book of the dead, and she’s also a pretty heartless, not to mention peed off about the fact they took her book in this short teen play.

WHITE WIDOW – TEEN GHOST STORY SCRIPT

In this teen ghost story script, a bunch of teens play a practical joke on one of the girls, called Sam. In the joke, it appears that the boys have dared the girls to go to a house that burnt down many years ago and to take a picture of themselves in the house to prove that they’ve done it. Local legend has it that the house is haunted by The White Widow who, as a ghost burnt the house and her husband in it, a year to the day after her husband murdered her on their wedding night. They say her young child perished in the blaze as well.

The practical joke turns real when the teens discover that the white widow is in fact real, and still bent on revenge…
