Moose tracks – a dark comedy script


dark comedy script


Skyler Pressman is bringing her new boyfriend Johnny to meet her grandparents, who raised her like a daughter. The only thing Skyler forgot to mention to Johnny was that he is actually “Boyfriend #9” and that the other eight ex-boyfriends disappeared under mysterious circumstances just after meeting Skyler’s overly-protective grandfather Harvey, the retired dentist and outdoor enthusiast/hunter. Can Johnny win the approval of Harvey before the night is over or will his head end up as just another trophy on the wall, right next to a peculiar moose? Find out in Moose Tracks, the new comedy adventure by Mark Aloysius Kenneally.

Moose tracks received an honorable mention in the 2015 McLaren Memorial Comedy Play Writing Competition.

Moose Tracks was recently performed by the Rosetown Community Theatre. See production pics and read a little more about the production.

Jack comes to the conclusion that his old nemesis, Professor D.
