Sindication – American one act play that breaks the fourth wall

American one act play

SINDICATION – AMERICAN ONE ACT PLAY THAT BREAKS THE FOURTH WALL

 

This experimental, short comic drama is a thought-provoking, Ionescu-like political play that mars the line between Man and Media. The fourth wall becomes especially dynamic in this amusing drama, in its role as a television screen, flashing across the eager, dumbed-down faces of a seemingly typical American family waiting for dinner, on a Sunday, after church in a small town we’re all somehow familiar with. Here they sit, this seemingly typical American family, each making wild accusations about the audience—who unwittingly takes on the role of the Media in all its forms—as this family tries, like they do every Sunday, to talk to each other by talking about everything else in this American one act play that breaks the fourth wall.

Sindication was an Official Finalist at the 2018 Manhattan Downtown Urban Arts Festival.

TEMP WORK – TEN MINUTE COMEDY ABOUT A SLEAZY BOSS

It’s not easy waking up to make another man’s dreams come true. For Emily she has the optimism that comes with youth so she’s trying to make the best of the job. Beverly has been at it long enough that she’s started dying slowly every minute and Alicia has been there the longest so she knows that to get through the day’s work involves a fair amount of lying in this ten minute comedy about a sleazy boss.

The women have an uphill battle and making nice with Glavin is exactly what they should not be doing. In Temp Work everyone is losing the rat race and it seems no one cares to really compete.

Blind Date – ten minute comedy for two actors

one act comedy for two actors

BLIND DATE – ONE ACT COMEDY FOR TWO ACTORS

In one hysterical act, a man and woman each get ready for a date with one another, while contemplating the night ahead. Both divorced, Stanley Kramer (a doctor) and Alice Adler (who works in medical research) have been set up on a blind date by their friends and it’s hardly a boring evening of preparation. We get the perspective of each suitor as they ready themselves for a night of ‘putting on’. ‘Putting on’ the charm and ‘putting on’ the confidence. Basically: Putting on a show. In “Blind Date” it’s all about the potential that comes with meeting someone new and how stressful that really is in this one act comedy for two actors.

If dying alone is the other alternative may the blind dates keep on coming!

Author: Tanis Galik

Genre: Comedy

Type: One act comedy for two actors

Cast: 1M 1F

Ages of the actors: Not stipulated. Both are divorced, so one assumes thirties up.

Suitable for: Teens up to perform and all ages to watch

Length: Twenty minutes

Set: The stage is divided into two bedrooms—-one feminine, one masculine. The rooms are separated by an imaginary wall which includes a full-length mirror (empty of glass) that both characters use simultaneously. The lady’s boudoir has a dressing table with a large mirror (empty of glass) that has its back to the audience so they can watch the woman while she primps. There is a smaller, freestanding make-up mirror on the tabletop. The man’s room contains a dresser and a sink with similar mirrors. Both rooms, with articles of clothing tossed about and unmade beds, look like a flurry of activity has just occurred.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 both characters have to appear to be alone but bounce lines off the other at the same time.

THERE WAS A GREAT BIG MOOSE – CANADIAN SATIRICAL HORROR SCRIPT

Like any other city in Ontario, almost nothing out of the ordinary happens in Swords. Heck, nothing unexpected happens in Canada. It’s Canada! The police force has become accustomed to dealing with random animals stuck in the air vents around the metropolis, every morning is a comfortable coffee run, etc. etc. Just the run of the mill small town agenda. That is until the star hockey player of this 3 530 strong city sees what he believes to be half a moose and half a man in one. On the hockey rink no less. The moose-man itself (himself?) believable or not, is not nearly as problematic as the story he has to tell and the secrets that come with it. Swords is about to expect the unexpected, in this one Canadian satirical horror script.

Susan’s late. And not in the ‘late for work’ way. She’s thirty, working hard to be a lawyer and just waiting for that big promotion that’ll make her career fly. Being late is the last thing she needs right now in this comedy about a pregnancy test. Elliot is married to Susan. They’ve been married three years and, to be honest, he’s always wanted a family. Maybe a son he can shoot hoops with. Or a little daughter he can play ‘tea’with.  Today,  they’ve bought home pregnancy test and Susan has peed on the stick. And so they wait…

Waiting… Ten Minute Short Romantic Play

SHORT ROMANTIC PLAY

WAITING… TEN MINUTE SHORT ROMANTIC PLAY

He’s going on a blind date. To the library of all places? She’s told him very little about herself, just that she’s interested in art, books, museums, and classical music. He has no idea what she looks like at all. So when he tentatively approaches a woman reading and mentions that he is on a blind date and waiting for someone, they get into a conversation. She helpfully points out that although he thinks he’s good looking, he really could dress better to impress this girl. He replies he just wants a girl without a nose ring he could take home to meet his mother. Various women entering the library are examined to see if they could be the woman he is waiting for. In the end – who does it turn out to be?

ON HOW TO ACCOMMODATE MARLO’S FRYING PAN – ONE ACT FOR A CAST OF 5.

Marlo has a problem with her frying pan. She can’t get rid of it. Worse, she never knows what to do with it or why she has it or how she even got it. Every day, it’s the same old, same old, and she feels like everyone else makes fun of her for it—her so-called friends—with all their ideas that also never work out. They have their issues, too! In fact, everyone has something they have to deal with on a daily basis. And in Marlo’s case, it’s a frying pan in this one act for a cast of 5.

Poor Marlo. She’s frustrated. She’s mad. And she can’t tell anymore if she needs to find out the How or the Why.  All she can come up with is a lot of Maybes. Of course, maybe it’s never been about Why she is where she is, but about What she is while she’s there. (Right? Maybe). Sigh. Then again, maybe what matters is simply knowing that there’s safety in numbers—even if, and maybe especially if, those numbers are all…odd.

It was a long time ago, Sam was still a kid, when he lost his grandmother, Amelia, to a car accident. His grandpa and best friend Jimmy was too drunk and had to be picked up by Amelia at the bar. She never made it to the bar and none of Jimmy’s kids or grandkids (including Sam) have paid him any attention since. It’s a compelling premise, right? In fact Sam intends to use it for his book. Only snag is that he won’t get published without Grandpa Jimmy’s side of the story being told too. It’s time for Sam to take a trip back home and hear Grandpa Jimmy out. Sam will likely run into his ex-girlfriend too and the truth of it is that he cannot fathom what other facts lie waiting for him.
