A SECOND CHANCE – SCIENCE FICTION PLAY SCRIPTS

Eight people who couldn’t be more different find themselves at a meeting. A meeting of the afterlife. For although these people are all dead, they do have one thing in common. The potential to alter catastrophic events in history and thus change the world to hopefully a better place. The eight are given a choice – to accept an assignment or to continue their journey of the afterlife. Seven accept but almost immediately find themselves back in the same place they were before. But just what did happen to them in this science fiction play script?

WHERE’S MR M? TWO ACT SCIENCE FICTION PLAYSCRIPT

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.

GODDLE – SCI-FI COMEDY SCRIPT

In the not too distant future two earthlings crash land on a planet remarkably similar to Earth. They learn from two natives that the planet, Goddle, is inhabited by a race similar to humans but more developed due to the existence of a substance called Goddlemite. Goddlemite allows the inhabitants of Goddle to communicate telepathically by channelling their thoughts. The unwelcome intrusion by the Goddlians into the minds of the Earthlings leads to much confusion and romantic innuendo, eventually leading to animosity between the Earthlings and Goddlians.

However, the Earthlings learn that Goddlemite can also be used as a power source for their crashed space ship and they hatch a plan to steal Goddlemite so they can return to Earth. Without the power of Goddlemite to read each other’s mind the Goddlians struggle with the need to speak to each other but eventually manage to make their feelings known. When the Goddlians confront the Earthlings about the theft of the Goddlemite, they come to realise that they don’t need the power to read each others’ minds. The Earthlings are able to depart with the power source they need and the Goddlians must learn to cope with the new communication method that involves talking.
