South african comedy scriptscomedy thriller script

In this cmedy thriller script, a group of friends get together to play their regular poker game. But one of the group of friends who lives in the same apartment block is mysteriously missing. The group is quite worried about him as he lost his wife recently and since then he seems to be suffering from a lot of anger and depression. They are naturally concerned that something may have happened to him, but they would never have imagined that at that very moment he was holding a burglar hostage in his apartment…

Don’t knock has been staged by The Franklin Players as part of their annual one act play festival, and by The Durban University of Technology in 2015.

A rap drama in two acts, based on the lives of two couples whose lives have been affected by the crash in the economy taking place all over the world and continuing into the present day. These people, David, Joan, Harry and Sara all had good jobs and great lives and lost them suddenly one day when the economy crashed.
Forced to look at their harsh situations, they draw on the memories and the experiences of their lives and those of their families and friends past and present in order to be able to take ‘the next step’ in life, whatever the consequences.

This play is ideal for an arts festival, especially the fringe section of an arts festival as it requires a minimal set and can thus be put on anywhere. It’s message will hold true for many communities who have been hit by the crash in the world’s economy.
