one act drama scripts


In this art festival style play set in a park, Roger, the central character is constantly harassed by various members of the public, some of whom he knows and some of who he is meeting for the first time. Each character that joins Roger in this one act dramedy script, interacts with him in a way that allows Roger to reflect on his own life and who he is.  Many of the characters are humorous in their outlook on life, in contrast to Roger. As the play culminates with a twist, the audience will get to understand exactly why Roger is where he is and who the man inside is.

This one act drama play is ideal for festivals as it requires minimal set and is largely dependent on the skill of the actors.
