The Warhol Institute for the Forgotten FAMOUS – Comedy about Therapy

comedy about therapy

THE WARHOL INSTITUTE FOR THE FORGOTTEN FAMOUS – COMEDY ABOUT THERAPY

They’re all there and you should know them. Jacqueline, Lenny, Natasha and Marvin. With the pile of problems on the therapist’s lap, you’d think she was dealing with a-list celebrities, you know ‘cause more money more problems but this is a bunch who’s list doesn’t even exist. In, The Warhol Institute for the Forgotten Famous, Jacqueline is the resident troublemaker and is pretty good at her job. She has it in for the therapist and finds an ally in Lenny, the timid baby phoenix no one knows a thing about in this comedy about therapy.

Natasha has yet to come to terms with the fact that she isn’t that great… at anything. It’s a harsh pill to swallow but at least Jacqueline has them all covered in that regard. Then there’s Marvin. Poor guy stands no chance what with him getting aroused from the strangest proclivity and his nemesis, Jacqueline, who never lets him forget how strange he is. You’d think this two-act comedy was about Jacqueline (born Barbara) or the self-discovery and healing of the foursome, at the guidance of the dutiful therapist but it’s not. This is about not acknowledging who you’ve always been and paying the price for it.

Running of the aaah! comedy about how to sabotage the running of the bulls

RUNNING OF THE AAAH! COMEDY ABOUT HOW TO SABOTAGE THE RUNNING OF THE BALLS

Every year, the famed festival of San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain culminates in the running of the bulls, and every year, hundreds of animal rights activists show up to boycott the event out of protest. Running of the—AAAH!, a new bovine comedy by Mark Aloysius Kenneally, tells a fictional alternate history of the week leading up to the first American version of the event and the catastrophic chaos that ensues when one of the most vocal opponents turns out to actually be one of the bulls slated to run.

It’s a fact that the average human is cleverer than the average bovine; hence the existence of Steak Tartare. But just once in while, a group of exceptional bovines come out of the paddock. And saves the day. The bulls are revolting, the humans are scheming – but who will get the last moo in this comedy about how to sabotage the running of the bulls?

THE IMPOSTOR – TWO-ACT COMEDY ABOUT AN ESTATE AGENT

Family and business usually don’t mix well. That, however, has yet to stop the Norths in this comedy about an estate agent. The Norths run North Real Estate Agency with Roger, the tough patriarch, at its head. Marianne, Roger and Elvira’s daughter, is in love with Val, an employee who seeks the blessing of Roger. Now, Roger’s wife is (at the same time) being pursued by Terry Tupper (another employee) whom Grandma North and Roger seem to live for… and that’s just for starters.

As complicated as things are (and probably always will be) Terry Tupper is the largest problem facing the family and its business. He seems to have some sort of agenda. Everyone BUT Roger and Grandma seem to be onto his shenanigans. Something must be done. And it must be done before Terry starts believing he has become a North.

Family first and constant vigilance!

SITUATIONAL COMEDY SCRIPT

SHADY LADIES – SITUATIONAL COMEDY SCRIPT

Jim and Jerry are best buddies. Jim’s a once successful Sitcom writer and Jerry, a Los Angeles Special Forces Police Lieutenant assigned to combat the evils of prostitution which causes him to suffer “anxiety attacks” from the stress in this situational comedy script. The cure? Watching a major sports event on TV with his buddy and a six pack.

Unfortunately for the comedy writer, his buddy could not have chosen a worse time to arrive on his doorstep.  The writer is (he hopes) expecting a very attractive young lady he met on a limo coming in from the airport, who is also a writer and hoping to work her way into script writing.  He extended the invitation to her (presumably) to help her “break into the business”.

Luckily she doesn’t arrive until after Jerry leaves and turns out to be a beautiful, but innocent young woman. They get to chatting about life, Jerry and his little “problem”.  The writer admits that he hasn’t worked in some time due to writer’s block as he’s waiting for the inspiration for a new series. The woman suggests to Jim that a sit com based on his friend’s profession busting prostitution rings in L.A., could be hilarious.

The two friends take the idea on board and soon the series is written and they see themselves on the road to riches and fame. Inflated by his success, Jim shares the script with his young protege, as a lesson in professional script writing, only to find that she vanishes, along with his script.

But who exactly was she and have they been duped all along?

NOTHING TO DIE FOR – PLAY ABOUT MURDER AND REVENGE

Tom is a struggling writer who’s facing a prolonged spell of writer’s block. His frustrations have exaggerated his obsessive-compulsive disorder, and both have exasperated his wife, Carla.  Carla, not given to wallowing in self-pity, has taken Tom’s best friend, Brad, as a lover. Brad, an aspiring actor, has been quite willing to play the part in this play about murder and revenge. 

When Tom’s writer’s block appears to give way, Tom invites Brad over to share an inspired idea he has for a play. The lovers then plan to steal some time for themselves, with the unwitting, but quite willing help, of their new neighbor, Nancy Chapman, a desperate divorcee.  

When Tom’s idea for a play turns out to be one that so closely mirrors the reality of Carla and Brad’s affair, they begin a long night, of acting parts of the play out to help Tom with his writing,  while wondering if they’ve been caught, or worse are about to be killed. The lovers never seem to agree on what is going on in Tom’s mind, except they’re both certain Tom would never get blood on the carpet!

The memory jar – AMERICAN DRAMA play

American drama play

THE MEMORY JAR – AMERICAN DRAMA PLAY

Like any family matriarch, Cassandra Barrett sometimes knows things her three kids and her husband, Christopher, may not. It’s the job of a mother to know things about them, things about herself. Things best left to the last minute, to blurt out and have the fast approaching reality concerning this or that, cushion the blow. In this two act drama, a few weeks after Thanksgiving, the Barrett kids will be paying their parents another visit. Alan, the somewhat spoilt baby, Alexandra, the neurotic daughter and Arthur, the very reserved, eldest son, impending visit is suspicious to Christopher and his suspicions fall squarely on Cassandra in this American drama play. It’s a reunion that may never happen with the entire family again and Alexandra is determined to make it count. She suggests a memory jar that the family can work on to make a record of the best times they shared together as a unit. With the hospitalization of Christopher smack in the middle of the reunion, a memory jar might not be such a bad idea.

A story of loss and how to prepare for it.

SEIZE THE CROWN – A COMEDY ABOUT COMMUNITY THEATRE

Had the local Theatre Group spent as much time rehearsing (in this comedy about community theatre) as they did:

    • Arguing about their last performance
    • What their next play should be
    • If their director, Joyce, is living in luxury
    • Discussing Ted (the resident clown) and why he’s even in the Group
    • Taking way too may breaks
    • Fawning over their newest member (Rita’s) experience and training
    • Discussing Rita’s dad who’s in jail
    • Contemplating bowel movements
    • Mocking the name of the new play they’d be performing
    • Quarrelling over the stage directions involving a love scene
    • Gossiping over Tim’s operation on his, uh, member
    • Arguing over who won’t be playing the gay character and
    • Considering a change in leadership

    ……they would have had the time to really pay attention to Game of Thrones and they would have seen Rita coming (figuratively). And for that matter, they would have seen her brother Colin, coming too (literally). Tourettes or not Colin had a point to make and in a game like this, he had to make it.

LEONARDO – MURDER MYSTERY PLAY SET IN THE TIME OF LEONARDO DA VINCI

The time: The late 1400’s. The place: Renaissance Italy. Leonardo da Vinci, already a notable artist and inventor is called upon by one of his clients, Mona Lisa to solve the mystery of the mysterious illness and subsequent death of a her sister who is nun in the covent of San Domenico.  Rumours of her being with an illegitimate child abound, but also the presence of an unusual book, containing content that may not have been sanctioned by the church is found in her belongings.

Leonardo must solve the mystery of first of all how she died, and secondly, who killed her. Using a combination of wits, alchemy and good old fashioned detective work he unearths the mystery surrounding her death and perhaps that of Christ himself.

In addition, the play uses dancers to express the emotion of the scenes and sometimes a choir is used for the same purpose. The director’s challenge is to synchronise the players with the dancers and the music. Permission of the playwright may be sought to omit the dancing and live music if need be.

A SNITCH IN TIME – TIME TRAVELLING SCRIPT FOR TEENS

“My name is May. I was born not far from here. It wasn’t that long ago. Maybe you’ve seen me around? But then again, you probably haven’t. Why? Well, officially, I don’t exist. You could call me invisible, in a way.  For want of a better word. And ironically, you’d be right.”

When May accidentally discovers she can see hidden time travellers, and rescues Anne Frank who has been brought to our time, she is immediately recruited to “The Agency” – the top secret government agency that controls time travel. Her mission: To go back in time and  alter events or retrieve famous people who otherwise would have died. From JFK to Anne Boleyn, to Nazi Germany – it all turns out well. Until it doesn’t. When May and her partner, Roger return with Anne Boleyn, the world has changed. A leak in time has occurred – one that forever alters the fabric of reality. The Nazi’s won.

They’re the only ones that know the truth. And they’re the only ones who can do anything about it in this script for teens.  A great play for drama class or play for youth theatre.

Author: Claire Linda Demmer

Genre: Comedy, adventure, script for teens

Type: Two-act play

Cast: Total thirty actors. Speaking roles: 13-14M, 8-9F.  Certain roles are less gender specific, for example, Nazi’s could be either male or female. 

Ages of the actors: Teen up

Suitable for: All ages to watch and perform

Length: Two hours

Set: The stage is divided into three areas – the main stage, a platform to the front of the stage and another platform to the right or left of it. The main area and the platform downstage have scene changes whereas the platform to the side is always the main office of headquarters with a number of desks behind which sit the workers typing away and answering phones. A map of the world is on the wall behind the office. The Nazi flag is hung there as well during the second act. Scene changes in the other two areas remain simple and occur during other scenes to allow the play to flow. The ‘time field’ can be created using lighting and sound effects, or even basic LED lights switched on and off.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 – Effects, scenery and costumes. As they travel all through time, the main actors do have some costume and scene changes but these are also really fun for the players as well!

BESIDE THE KITCHEN TABLE – GHOST AND HORROR SCRIPT

Michael is Lily’s last hope. You see, she’s a ghost and has been for fourteen years. In this two-act drama, her haunt is the large kitchen of the Baker household and Michael is the son of Paul and Laura Baker. Lily has a score to settle and no one else but Michael is able to help her at this point. Robbed of her life at such a young age (she was a teenager) and unable to go on, Lily has spent her time trying to connect with the family that last saw her alive. While trying to be ‘’seen’’ she learns that she may yet have another chance at some things that were taken from her. As Lily and Michael grow closer, she reveals that she didn’t just disappear and that she was raped and murdered, right on the kitchen table where the family now sits in this ghost and horror script.

As for everything else she has missed out on, it isn’t up to her to decide what happens next but luckily for her, a ghost has another way to serve a helping of vengeance: her hands are cold and so is the heart that no longer beats. Thus, she must use the human to enact her revenge….

THE RETIREMENT OF THE WITCHES OF IPSWICH – BRITISH COMEDY PLAYS

Molly, Agnes and Moira have put their wands away as per the conditions of their retirement. They must abide by the rules set out by the Elder Wood Retirement Home for Witches, Wizards, Warlocks and Window Cleaners and duly enforced by the staff including the hard-headed Matron. Tricksters by nature, the ‘rules’ have hardly stopped the trio from engaging in some light fun at the expense of the other inhabitants of the Home – especially Bill (a retired window cleaner) – or the naïve staff in this British comedy.

In their old age, they see no reason to hang up their broomsticks and stop enjoying the adventurous side of life and soon enough they find themselves in a haunted and old theatre, looking for mischief. They encounter some less-than-scary ghosts who decide to get in on the fun of having the witches’ toy with the residents of Elder Wood… It really is all fun and games until the truth about window cleaners retiring in the same residences as witches, comes to light.

If the cauldron bubbles, it usually spells some trouble.
