Road Rage – a one act comedy play

one act comedy play


In this one act comedy play, a woman knocks and enters a man’s office, making sure she has the right person and indicating she is a messenger. He shows his annoyance and, in a silly charade, pretends he is not who she is looking for, but it turns out she is not who she says she is. Eventually, she reveals who she is and why she is there and takes him through various stages of emotion, eventually taking the audience by surprise and leading to a dramatic climax.

Leonard has written about a dozen full length plays and somewhat more one act plays. Some have won prizes: full length plays “Laramie, Equal Rights” and “Clara” won awards at the Shoreline Readers Theater, 2009 and 2010, in Washington State. “Road Rage” and “Apartment 4G” won in the 2010-2011Ink to Boards” One-Act Play Competition at Wildfire Arts.   Several plays have been produced locally in the Seattle, Washington and in New York are others have been read at writers’ workshops, and some at festivals.
