Cuckold – ten minute period play script

ten minute period play script


In eighteenth century England, CUCKOLD is a scandalous romp that surrounds a playwright, his muse, and her hapless husband.

One flew over the cuckold’s nest. He flew over, was seen by the Cuckold and invited to enjoy the most prized piece of his household for the sanctity of the creative pursuit. In Cuckold  we are given an opportunity to observe a one of a kind domestic ‘agreement’. Simply put, the Cuckold agrees to his wife’s adultery as it aids in the flow of a certain playwright’s artistic, uh, juices in this ten minute period play script.

Pray take heed; the lady knows not what she does. Yet… the Cuckold and the playwright have been brought together for some or other plight. By surety, anonymity, complacency and zero propriety can art be well made and when sealed with a kiss, oh, the possibilities are endless…even when the kiss is shared by the unlikeliest pair!
