The test – comedy about a pregnancy test

comedy about a pregnancy test


Susan’s late. And not in the ‘late for work’ way. She’s thirty, working hard to be a lawyer and just waiting for that big promotion that’ll make her career fly. Being late is the last thing she needs right now in this comedy about a pregnancy test. Elliot is married to Susan. They’ve been married three years and, to be honest, he’s always wanted a family. Maybe a son he can shoot hoops with. Or a little daughter he can play ‘tea’with.  Today,  they’ve bought home pregnancy test and Susan has peed on the stick. And so they wait…

“The Test” was the winner of the 2016 “An Evening of New Plays Competition” and received a two night reading at the Tobye Studio of the Sugden Community Theatre in Naples, Florida.
