The Fence – ten minute comedy about relationships

ten minute comedy about relationships


In this ten minute comedy about relationships, we take a humorous look at the lives of two ordinary suburban couples. They are friends and the girls often go round to visit each other as do the guys.They are both at the time of their lives when it’s time to settle down, get married and have kids. It’s clear that that’s what they all want. Or is it?? Perhaps it’s just what they’re telling each other…

‘The fence’ examines the expectations of the girls and then the guys on the other side of the fence, taking the same situations that happen to the couples from completely opposite and funny perspectives. While explaining what happened to their friends, it can be said that the girls tend to embellish somewhat and the guys tend to over dramatize! But if you think that’s not really the case, why not read this funny script set in suburbia?  You’ll identify with it.
