Missing The Mark – A Comedy in One Act

comedy in one act

In this comedy in one act, Devon and Ethan have known each other since high school and now they have a successful racket as con men.  Devon has the perfect plan to scam a boat load of cash off of rich women by posing as producers making a big Hollywood blockbuster.  The two men set up a phony office and hire a pistol of a temp named Starla to run it.  A couple of promising marks come along including Shelly, a ditzy blonde, and Charlene, the eccentric wife of a billionaire who would give anything to be in the movies.  Everything seems to be going to plan until Devon’s ex-girlfriend Callia, who was also ripped off  by Devon shows up. She wants revenge…and a cut of the action.  Comedy and hijinx ensue as everyone tries to find out who’s conning who in this comedic farce.
