adult comedy script


Stephen’s a womanizer and married to the ever faithful
Susan. Thomas is recently divorced and Stephen’s hapless and harried long-time best friend.  Stephen’s business is finally taking off. Stephen has a young, tantalizing girlfriend named Debbie. Stephen’s
life is great but for one thing-being married to  the annoyingly faithful Susan.  A real thorn in his side.  He wants to get rid of her, but how?

He hatches an idea to solve all his problems-he only
needs to persuade Thomas to seduce his wife, on video,
as grounds for divorce.  Will he do it? Or rather, her?

I should tell you – a comedy in two acts

comedy in two acts



In this hilarious comedy in two acts, Trent Steele, a millionaire, is looking to buy the Grand Palace Massage Parlor with the intention of leveling the whole historic block that its on so he can put up one of his state-of-the-art skyscrapers.  Well, Trent likes to deal only in cash which opens up an opportunity for Cory, a petty con artist, and Kaelan, his scheming bookie, to make some money.  Cory poses as Trent when arriving at the Grand Palace to get Penny, the manager, and Lupe, the head masseuse, out of the way.  Once this is accomplished Cory poses as the owner of the parlor when the real Trent arrives in order to get his hands on the cash.  Things go awry when a nosey reporter obsessed with Trent shows up and figures out the scam when Cory tries to pass himself off as the man that she is determined to get her big story on.  Trent’s dumb body guard and wife also tag along on this business further complicating matters.  The one thing no one counted on was Trent pulling out a gun and going slightly crazy once his briefcase full of cash disappears.  Hijinks and slap stick comedy ensue as everyone tries to get their hands on the money.

This show was produced and performed at the Fontana Community Players Theater in Fontana, California in 2007.
