ten minute comedy for two actors


In this ten minute comedy for two actors, desperate to defeat a playwriting deadline, the team of Hugh and Emma strike terror in their own hearts to get the creative juices flowing again. When these two writers strike or take meetings, they sharpen their pencil wits over which stories are tried-and-true and those that can’t miss. If that doesn’t work, they risk banter whilst barely remembering how to fly a biplane.
