Barred – short one act comedy-drama

short one act


In this short one act, a girl is kicked out of a bar, and a hopeful older guy tries to pick her up. But she is fickle, like many young girls, and intentionally, or unintentionally leads the hopeful guy along. All for a cigarette…

A short comedy-drama great for character development as an actor.
