Antibiotic! Hospital Comedy Script in Two Acts



short medical skit


In this hospital comedy script in two acts, Wally, who is an elderly man and a member of the great unwashed, creates havoc in the male ward, whilst an unfortunate male patient who is having a problem with his genitals is placed in the female ward due to overcrowding. Back in the female ward, the patients discover that two of them know the same man (rather well) and only one of them is married to him!
This play is set in New Zealand but the content is universal and will be giggled at by audiences throughout the world.
