Down by the River – ten minute romantic comedy script

ten minute romantic comedy script


A ten minute romantic comedy script in which Cindy, a thirty something divorced woman meets Brandon, also a thirty something, and also divorced man in a bar. They get on quite well, and he hints at a cabin down by the river where they could go. The date ends well, and they part, planning to meet up.

 However, the next time they meet it isn’t Cindy but Sandy, Cindy’s twin sister who is there as a prank (and to find out more about him!); Brandon certainly thinks Sandy is Cindy.
