THERE WAS A GREAT BIG MOOSE – CANADIAN SATIRICAL HORROR SCRIPT

Like any other city in Ontario, almost nothing out of the ordinary happens in Swords. Heck, nothing unexpected happens in Canada. It’s Canada! The police force has become accustomed to dealing with random animals stuck in the air vents around the metropolis, every morning is a comfortable coffee run, etc. etc. Just the run of the mill small town agenda. That is until the star hockey player of this 3 530 strong city sees what he believes to be half a moose and half a man in one. On the hockey rink no less. The moose-man itself (himself?) believable or not, is not nearly as problematic as the story he has to tell and the secrets that come with it. Swords is about to expect the unexpected, in this one Canadian satirical horror script.

Just how well do you know your town?

FATHER – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT A PRIEST AND HIS FIRST DAY ON THE JOB

It is Father Daniel’s first day at St. Nicholas’ Parish and walking into his office, he has no idea what exactly he has been lead into by his no-nonsense secretary, Mrs Brubaker in this one act comedy about a priest. Within a minute of him trying to settle in, Father Daniel is visited by the Bishop himself in all his intimidating splendour. The Bishop politely asks (in other words, warns) Fr. Daniel’s to make use of his experience in public relations towards making the annual St. Nicholas Patronal Festival a success.

Fr. Daniel no doubt smells his placement at St. Nicholas as hanging in the balance of the Festival turning out splendidly or an event that is not an embarrassment to his holiness the Bishop. With his job threatened in the first few minutes of him starting it, the Father must ensure he impresses the Bishop and the Festival’s committee which has its own legacy to uphold. In one act, Father explores the best of church politics and the comedy behind what you may see as a serious confession.

A father’s work is never done….
