EJECTED – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT A VIDEO STORE

‘Same Day Video Rental’ is quite literally on its last breath and the owner, Henry, is equally over being the heir to a crumbling and profitless video rental store. In Ejected, the world is simply streaming via the Internet more and more every day and there is no room for an establishment like Henry’s in this two-act comedy about a video store.

Duke, the local ‘tough guy,’ who was once a ‘loser’ compared to Henry in their youth, has a large stake in the property market surrounding ‘Same Day Video Rental’ and also owns a very successful movie streaming service. His big property stake is as large as his tolerance for his dumb girlfriend, his ego and his disposition for anabolic steroids.

Duke antagonises Henry, his staff (Wilson and Justin) and his sister (Rachel) just enough to push Henry to sell the store…to him. In this comedy/drama in two acts, the force that is family and loyalty coming together for a cause that is more than worthy, change this sad excuse for a video store for the better and give Henry a sense of optimism he hasn’t seen in too many years. Blurb If he can’t save it – Rachel, Wilson and Justin will!
