BUT I’M FRENCH – ONE ACT ROMANTIC COMEDY PLAYS

Charles is convinced that he’s actually French – to the extent that he speaks in a French accent, and talks garbled ‘French’ to total strangers that he meets. This annoys his girlfriend, Penelope to no end. When he befriends two confused French girls and talks to them in ‘French,’ Penelope is embarrassed and begs him to stop. But Charles won’t be deterred and thinks he knows a way to convince Penny that he is in fact French.

‘But I’m French’ is the 2009 winner of the Little Fish Theater’s – Pick of the Vine Play Contest. San Pedro, California. It was also selected for Lee Street Theatre’s SIX IN THE CITY 10 Minute Original Play Festival 2009 Salisbury N.C. It  won first place in the 2007 Porter Fleming Writing Competition sponsored by the Greater Augusta (GA) Arts Council and was selected for Barestage Theatre’s “Six 15s @ Eight” New Plays Festival 2005.

Lies You Can’t Make Up – a drama script about JFK

 

drama script about JFK

LIES YOU CAN’T MAKE UP – A DRAMA SCRIPT ABOUT JFK

 

Two-to-eight actors portray galvanizing characters in this drama script about JFK, and who he was and what he represented. The play is non-linear with flashbacks and flash forwards.  The characters are taken from history of the twentieth century and various facts are put forward about their interactions with each other, some true and some fictional.  The real question is –  Which are facts and which are fiction?

At indicated times the characters speak as a unified voice, and may be considered a Greek chorus — which initiated fervent non-linear mantras and morality tales about the complexity and inherent corruption of giving birth and rebirth to democracy.
