Le Jeu Espion (The Spy Game) WWII Comedy Spoof



The time? World War 2. The place? A little not so innocent French cafe. The Genre? A very, very silly WWII Comedy Spoof.

Now, listen carefully – for I shall say this once only. The French resistance have hidden a secret code inside a painting known only as “The Singing Bovine.” A local street artist, Etienne (a.k.a. Caroline) whose mustache is definitely not fake has the painting. All you need to do is to whisper the secret password to Etienne and she (sorry, he) will give the painting to you. The war will be won today!

Now – do not let the painting get into the enemy’s hands! Beware of the Nazi’s, and don’t trust that Italian or his little Russian friend, either. They all want the painting and will do their best to get their hands on it.

Le Jeu Espion plays homage to the great Allo Allo British Television series and its fans will love its similar feel. A great one act festival play.

Read About It – ten minute comedy scripts -when a middle aged couple meet at a bus stop

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!
