Say What? One Act Adult Comedy About Dating

SAY WHAT? ONE ACT ADULT COMEDY ABOUT DATING

Emm’s recovering from the shock of kicking her boyfriend out after finding a thong (not hers and no meant for her) in his bag. The evil, evil evil bastard was cheating on her, he’s gone and she has resorted to comfort food to get her through.  Luckily (or for better, or worse) for her she has the two sides of her brain to get her through this breakup in this adult comedy about dating.

Sarah is the logical side. She thinks it’s about time Emm stopped eating all that ice cream (it makes her fart) and get out there and meet a real man. (And if he’s looking to plough her fields, even better!) Bella is the emotional one. In her opinion, the Ex (Evil, Evil, Evil) deserved that microwave that was thrown at his head. Pity it missed.  Together they’re Sarah-Bella-Emm.

And tonight, Emm’s going on a date. And her brain is going to make sure she’s prepared for every (and I mean every) eventuality.

Happy Reality – fairytale comedy script for adults

When a fairytale becomes the most precise way to shock, educate and amaze!

Michelle is determined to write the perfect fairytale. Easy enough… except the story must have a lesson that teaches both parents and their children about the harsh facts of life, it must get the ‘approval’ of her publisher and most importantly, the story must honour the memory of her late daughter, Anna. Still trying to come to terms with her death and relying heavily on alcohol to deal with it, Michelle ponders her daughter and the life she could have lived, sewing it weirdly yet beautifully together with the outlandish adventures of a fairytale, to seal the memory of her daughter in a triumphant fashion in this modern fairytale comedy script for adults.

THREE’S A CROWD – ONE ACT FOR THREE ACTORS

A story of two best friends, their simple enough lives and their complicated relationships. Simon and Kerry have both reached the point of no return in the way they lead their love lives. Kerry has ended it with her physically and mentally abusive boyfriend Dylan, whilst Simon has recently come out and is embarking on his first relationship with another man. Kerry and Simon hide zero elements of their lives from one another but have never had the most intimately delicate parts intersect… That is until Simon realizes he is in love with Kerry’s ex, Malcolm. When Simon and Kerry’s friendship takes a turn for the less friendly and more romantic road, they have no choice but to face their uncertain futures with or without each other.

… Because girls and boys can never just be friends.

MISS INDEPENDENT – ONE ACT COMEDY ABOUT WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN YOUR MARRIAGE GOES DOWN THE TOILET

Two-hander one act comedy play script in which an errant husband’s yoga instructor girlfriend, aptly named ‘Çhristmas,’ manipulates the wife into divorcing her husband, the wife’s subsequent disintegration into the classic stages of anger (cured by throwing his stuff out the house), depression (cured by fried chicken) and toyboying (cured by ‘Malcolm’) and her gradual rehabilitation with the love of her son. Nice subtext of the male mid-life crisis.
