LITTLE MISS MUFFET SKIT

Once upon a time, little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet. Hang on, what’s a tuffet? Hmmm …. turns out even the narrator doesn’t know. Moving on: “Eating her curds and whey. ” Hang on! Her order hasn’t even come yet! What kind of diner is this anyway? “Sorry, I’m coming!” yells the waitress as the narrator resigns. And let’s not even mention the problem with the spider in this Little Miss Muffet skit.

Ooze Monster – Drama about Mental Illness

drama about mental illness

OOZE MONSTER – DRAMA ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS

It came to him in a terrible dream at first. A black ooze monster that was, somehow, strangely familiar. A monstrous version of himself. Then, it never left. An evil twin.  His twin. He didn’t know what to do with it.  But when a mysterious group came looking for it, he chose to protect his ‘evil twin’ because he needed to find out what it all meant in this drama about mental illness.

Then he asked another person to see it. It hurt him when she saw it. Not like any other physical assault but as though it felt pain and so it hurt him.

Once there’s a monster inside, do you choose to become it? Is there even a choice? Unleashing the madness within…

Foreign Therapy – tongue in cheek political comedy script

FOREIGN THERAPY – TONGUE IN CHEEK POLITICAL COMEDY SCRIPT

Read all about it! Read all about it! A new island has been discovered slap bang in the middle of the sea between the USA and Russia (And let’s not forget Canada, of course) . The leaders of each powerful nation are there, vying for ownership of the island in this tongue in cheek political comedy script.

Now, in every doomed marriage there is a mediator, someone whose job it is to smooth things over, as it were. Russia and America hate one another, so his job isn’t going to be easy. Canada has come to the party too, but that wasn’t the mediator’s idea. And because it wasn’t his idea, it’s clear he isn’t going to let Canada have a say, even though he has loads of good ideas.

Now this poor mediator’s task is to get them to agree on something. As the testosterone levels in the room rise, both Russia and America are finally united in the idea that they will go to war with each other over this tiny patch of land and the mediator is finding it more and more difficult and is considering abandoning the whole thing and going for lunch instead.

Enter North Korea. He’s brought popcorn.
