The Smith Mountain Hunting Club – one act drama for cast of 7

one act drama for cast of 7


This town ain’t like the rest of the USA. This town is strictly regulated by the mayor himself. You see, a few years back he passed some weird law that nobody was allowed to own or use a gun, ‘cept if you were part of law enforcement or the Smith Mountain Hunting Club. Now, the Smith Mountain Hunting club is pretty exclusive. There’s just a few of us. You see, you got to be able to shoot well to be here. About three miles away, there’s a valley with bird nests. All you have to do is shoot one of them mid flight. Now, they’re fast. Real fast. But if you can do that, you’re in. A gritty one act drama for cast of 7 actors.

Now today, we have another tryout. This time it’s young Jacob, a troubled youth just recently released from juvenile detention. The club is divided about whether we should give him a chance, knowing his record. But the rules are clear. If he can kill that bird, he’s in.
