THE HEIRS – BRITISH COMEDY SCRIPT

Margaret Hubbard is rich; painfully and decadently rich. Mrs. Hubbard is also dead and according to her will she is determined to drive her husband crazy (one last, exquisite time) with a to-do list that would have him claim the will’s contents only upon the doings on the list being completed. In fact, the rest of those on the receiving end of said will (who are interestingly enough mostly Hubbard
Manors’ staff) may only receive their inheritance should Mr. Hubbard succeed. This is a story we have seen time and again: what adversity can teach the hero about themselves, when they commit to taking on the challenge and the tricky consequences thereof. It’s a story about our hero, Jeremy Hubbard, husband to a recently deceased dragon and how he endeavours to fulfil his destiny and
claim what is ‘rightfully’ his – a temptingly sumptuous inheritance, of course. Our hero faces the dragon beyond the grave with the help of the staff and the fire-breathing lizard’s lawyer. And the
lesson? It begins and ends as the story does; with insatiability.

LET’S GET RID OF THE PLUMP PEOPLE – MODERN GREEK COMEDY IN FOUR ACTS

Andreas Efraimoglou, the Greek minister of foreign affairs isn’t really the nicest person in the world. In order to get where he is today, he has had to make a few deals in his time. He’s set his mind on winning the election after the next, and has two suitcases full of money to give to the right people to ‘ensure’ he wins it. He’s going to become party leader this time round, you see. He’s also obsessed with the latest health fads – the anti smoking campaign, and the anti obesity campaign. But it’s all going to come back to bite him….in a bad way, in the end.

This English version is a translation from a well staged Greek play.
