READ ABOUT IT -TEN MINUTE COMEDY SCRIPTS

Sweet romantic comedy about two middle aged widowed people who meet at a bus stop.  Herb is minding his business at the local bus stop, when he is interrupted by Hilda, who strikes up a conversation, much against Herb’s will.  Hilda notices things. For example, she notices the mirror  in the window of the local travel agents is a trick mirror, making people look thinner than they are and showing them on holiday, enjoying themselves.

She also notices that Herb is a recent widower which is great as she is a widow!

THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG – A POLITICAL SATIRE SCRIPT

The play is set at a court hearing of a man from rural Victoria who has been charged with sedition for publishing remarks on the internet that are deciphered as supportive of Al Qaeda. The man’s defense is that he did not publish the remarks but that his chicken had laid an egg on his computer keyboard which caused the random configuration of letters to be posted on the internet. Courtroom drama erupts as accusation fly about who really posted the comments, the defendant, the chicken…or the egg.

HEIR TO A MISFORTUNE – A SHORT TWO ACT FARCE

In this short two act farce, Arthur Aldenbrooke has recently passed away leaving behind his three daughters and a large fortune.  His oldest daughter, Violet, is sweet and innocent, while his younger daughters, Christa and Lynn are greedy trouble-makers.  Nigel Wentworth, Arthur’s attorney, shows up with the sealed will of the late millionaire with instructions to read it in front of a small handful of people.  One of those people being Arthur’s secret lady friend Gabriella, who is evil to the core and only wanted Arthur’s money right from the start.

Gabriella brings her idiot boyfriend Guy along for support in her scheming.  As soon as everyone arrives Christa and Lynn plot to steal the real will and replace it with a false one.  Meanwhile, Guy and Gabriella have their own intentions of stealing the will.  The only problem is that since the will was in a sealed envelope, Hazel, the delightfully unintelligent maid mailed it.  And to make matters worse, Erica, a young woman with a vendetta against the late Mr. Aldenbrooke shows up with a gun demanding money for her own father’s death which she claims Arthur was responsible for.
