TWO CATS, NO DOGS! TEN MINUTE ROMANTIC PLAYS

In this award winning romantic comedy script, a man and a woman find themselves at an art gallery, viewing a red (very red) painting. They get chatting to each other and, superimposed on their ‘chit chat’ are their thoughts – that they really and truly like each other and wish that the other would like them back. Their personal thoughts also intrude on what they’re trying to say to each other which leads to the sort of stuttering that happens when people are trying to impress each other. A lovely, funny two-hander script for one man and one woman of any age.

REVIEWS:

Redditch Advertiser, Worcesterhire, England
Produced by Mouthpiece Theatre, Worcestershire, England 2004
“Putting on a theatre performance is always a risky business. You don’t know whether the audience will turn off the telly and risk the chance of a waster evening. Mouthpiece Productions remedies this by taking theatre to the people. And if has certainly deliver the goods with its latest festival offering – Ugly Art… The show was a treat – a performance of this quality is worth traveling to watch. The show was light accessible and above all, very entertaining.

Sumter Item, Sumter, South Carolina
Produced by Urban Theater of Sumter 2004
“Three large canvases (blue, yellow and green) one bench and a small table displaying several wine glasses set the stage for “Ugly Art,” written by last year’s South Carolina playwright’s winner Terry Roueche… The play itself is sophisticated dialogue, evoking laughter through seven vignettes that explore a variety of topics – marriage, control, snobbery, fidelity and artistic talk…

Restaurants at Beautiful Times – one act drama for four actors

RESTAURANTS AT BEAUTIFUL TIMES – ONE ACT DRAMA FOR FOUR ACTORS

In this one act drama for four actors, the stage and the actor’s lives are divided into the ‘restaurant’ and the ‘place where the food is prepared.’   Jean and Myceneaus live and work in the place where the food is prepared. They have never known another existence, and theirs is grim existence at best.  Their only interaction is with the head waiter who liaises between both sides of the stage – both worlds, as it were.  This one act drama for four actors compares the worlds of the very rich and the very poor, and plays on the fact that neither side has any no idea what happens on ‘the other side.’  The play has been produced in Las Vegas by the Nevada Conservatory Theatre and in New York by Working Man’s Clothes thus far.

The author would request that he approves/disapproves any dialogue changes or renaming of characters, but genders may be altered at the theatre’s discretion. Read more about David McGinnis
