‘Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to bring you the news that we are
currently in an out-of-control descent. Our pilots are doing
everything they can to get us to safety.  Please remain in your seats with your seatbelts securely fastened and try to remain calm.’ After hearing the announcement that everyone on their flight is likely to go down in a ball of flames, Lisa decides it’s time to confess her greatest sin to her husband, Blake.  Lisa then guiltily confesses she had an affair with her yoga instructor. To her surprise. Blake immediately forgives her and then gives her news of his own sin. Which is: He once used her shampoo. And towel. He’s very ashamed of what he did as he knows how much her shampoo means to her. But he washed the towel. “What the…………!!!!!” Lisa sets out to make sure Blake’s sins equal her own as the plane plummets to its doom in this ten minute comedy for four actors.

    I bought this script based on the sample for my young drama troupe to perform at school… totally inappropriate for that.

      Thank you for bringing that to our attention – we’ll mark it as only for adults. We do offer a play reading service where you can read the script online before buying it if that will help in the future? As a goodwill gesture we’re happy to swap it for another script if you wish.
