one act dark comedy script


Meet Harold and Marge, anxious parents of the lovely Brittany. She’s got a new boyfriend and this time it’s serious. Way too serious as far as they’re concerned. For one – he’s too old for her.  She should really be with a boy her own age!  And too rich. He must be taking advantage of her! Now, today they’re meeting him for the very first time.  And they’re about to have a devil of a time when they meet him.  Never mind the hellhounds and the pitchfork in this one act dark comedy script.

This script is intended to poke fun at society’s norms and manners, especially those who ”consider” themselves to be middle class.

Warning: This play is not intended to give any offense but may inadvertently offend very religious people who do not think Satan should be funny.
