Say What? One Act Adult Comedy About Dating


Emm’s recovering from the shock of kicking her boyfriend out after finding a thong (not hers and no meant for her) in his bag. The evil, evil evil bastard was cheating on her, he’s gone and she has resorted to comfort food to get her through.  Luckily (or for better, or worse) for her she has the two sides of her brain to get her through this breakup in this adult comedy about dating.

Sarah is the logical side. She thinks it’s about time Emm stopped eating all that ice cream (it makes her fart) and get out there and meet a real man. (And if he’s looking to plough her fields, even better!) Bella is the emotional one. In her opinion, the Ex (Evil, Evil, Evil) deserved that microwave that was thrown at his head. Pity it missed.  Together they’re Sarah-Bella-Emm.

And tonight, Emm’s going on a date. And her brain is going to make sure she’s prepared for every (and I mean every) eventuality.

Although insure of the reason for her request to meet, they are prepared to welcome her with warm and open arms.  They all have history.

Burn premiered at The Gladstone, Ottawa, on August 19th, 2017.

“A highly suspenseful ghost story that holds you in its fiery grip right up until the final moments.”
Allan Mackey, On Stage Ottawa

” Burn is an entertaining and often compelling puzzle, and Patrick Truelove’s Sidekick Players production, built around a commanding central performance, gives full value to the play’s cleverness and intricacy. We really want to find out who did what to whom.”

“To understand and appreciate the ending, we need to be able to follow along the circuitous garden path down which the playwright takes us. And that we do, to the bitter, poetically just end. “

– Jerry Wasserman, Vancouver Plays/Vancouver Sun

children's comedy script


You know what? Adults are always saying how hard life is with jobs and kids and shopping and cooking and cleaning. But do you know how hard it is to be me? To be a 4th grader? I have tons of responsibilities. I have homework. I have to play the recorder in music class. I have to learn about the body. I have to manage 4 different girlfriends! Wait what day is it today? Tuesday…I have to manage 3 different girlfriends! Oh no…I have a spelling test today.
Poop! Anyway, you get the point. Us 4th graders are much busier than adults!

Tyler is a 4th grader struggling with all your typical 4th grade problems: homework, spelling tests, and of course – girls. From gym class, to music class, and everything in between, Tyler and his friends share their essential tips on surviving 4th grade in this children’s comedy script.

PRODUCTION NOTE: The play has been staged using older teen actors. Part of the charm and humour about the production was that the older actors were playing younger kids. As it is a wordy piece it would also suit teenagers.
