one act comedy plays for 5 actors


In this zany one act comedy for five actors, 2M and 3F, it’s the fifth anniversary of the chairman of The Bank, Alfred Shipman, and he is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Board, in order to commence celebrating his anniversary. He’s even written the speech himself, just in case. All that needs to be done in the final hour before they arrive is that Roger Hirsh, the vice-president has to put the final touches to the report that Alfred needs to give them. Things start to go downhill when Alfred’s wife, Anita, arrives an hour early from the airport bursting with news that she just has to tell someone; anyone. Then the money grabbing wife of one of his ex employees arrives as well, demanding compensation. They have to get rid of her, finish the report and a whole lot more before the hour is up. Will they make it?
