If God Ate Fried Chicken – Short Comedy Plays

short comedy scripts


If God Ate Fried Chicken is the story of Father Seacrest and Sister Blanche, secretly out on a date together to a chicken joint. Little do they know that fate has other plans for them, as uninvited outing guests begin showing up one after another, ending in the two of them hiding in the kitchen of the restaurant, and the police being called. By the end of it, all, it’s going to take a little divine intervention to keep things going even further south.

Read about playwright Timothy Starnes.

Dedication: “This script is dedicated to the one-and-only Savanah Jillani, whose winding, farcical stories of her own homeschooling inspire much of the aesthetic of the work. While as far as I know she’s never accidentally held-up a fried chicken restaurant, it all does not seem too far off, however, a bit unlikely though, seeing as she’s a vegetarian.”
