The Wrong side of the road – Drama for Teens about a Car Accident

DRAMA FOR TEENS ABOUT A CAR ACCIDENT

THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD – DRAMA FOR TEENS ABOUT A CAR ACCIDENT

Imagine that, in a moment of thoughtlessness your life would change for ever, and would even be over.
It’s the holidays and three teens, Danny, Ben and Rachael are going to spend the holidays at the cottage owned by Danny’s father. Danny, egged on by Ben, has driven there in his father’s car without his father’s consent. Danny also hasn’t got a driving licence or insurance in this drama for teens about a car accident.

Just a matter of a few minutes from their destination, Danny takes a bend on the wrong side of the road, resulting in another car swerving out the way to avoid them and crashing, with fatalities highly likely. In a moment of panic, Danny doesn’t stop at the scene of the accident.

When Rachael arrives at the holiday cottage on her motorbike a little later she brings news. The car they hit had one survivor, a policeman. She then produces a gun she took from the scene of the crime. What she suggests next is unthinkable.

LOVE IS A STRANGER – BRITISH ONE ACT DRAMA ABOUT FORBIDDEN LOVE

Vivian is a young transgender call girl who has fallen in love for the first time with one of her clients. She dreams of them running away together and has high hopes, until it all comes crashing down around her because of a huge publicity scandal. Her client, it turns out, never gave her his real name and he is, in fact a famous MP, with a wife and a little girl. He is shamed by the press and loses everything, including his life. The play begins after their dirty secret has been made public and deals with three very different characters – Clive, the destroyed MP, Vivian, the call girl and Lucia, a burnt out publicist whose aim it is to reap a profit from the scandal and get Vivian to tell her side of the story in this British one act drama.

A great three hander that explores the human condition: How we deal with sudden awful changes in circumstances. Some will profit, some will fight and some will despair. It’s what at the end of that road that counts.
