JOINED AT THE HIP – SOUTH AFRICAN COMEDY SCRIPTS

South african comedy scripts

When Siamese twins Jack and Jill’s car breaks down in the middle of a one horse town in the South African Cape countryside, they try to rent a room in the town’s only hotel. Tensions and comedy run high when the dimwitted receptionist insists that they won’t be allowed to share a room because of them being a man and a woman because that sort of thing is simply not heard of. When the manager is called and she is found to share a similar view, Jack and Jill can hardly believe it. Joined at The Hip is a comedic view of people in small towns who have deep seated traditional values but who, at the heart of it all, have the best intentions.

A WOLF BY THE EARS – IRISH COMEDY SCRIPT

When someone sets fire to Dinny Gallagher’s hay, Sergeant Marty McAteer needs to find a convenient culprit to blame. (Because, although it was an accident, Dinny Gallagher has always been “good” to the police) He decides to arrest the local Poet Hughie Doherty, because Doherty has always rubbed him up the wrong way, with his fancy rhymes that poke fun at people, and he needs to be taken down a peg or two. But it turns out that some real criminals are at large in the district….

NAKED – One act romantic comedy Play about the Pitfalls of Internet Dating!

Once upon a time two people met on the internet. Only… they really wanted to impress each other…and so…they embellished… a little. And then they met at a coffee shop. This is the play about meeting that special someone you haven’t quite told the whole truth to.  A nice two-hander, one act festival play for stage.
