LIFE OF A SALESMAN – TEN MINUTE COMEDY FOR A CAST OF FIVE

comedy for a cast of five

Meet Donald, a nervous, stammering brand new salesman. It’s his first day on the job and all the salesmen on the floor have been given a task: To be the top seller of the day. One of the main salesmen on the floor called Hudson, takes Donald under his wing to show him the ropes. Although it’s unlikely that Donald will make nearly as many sales as himself, he tells Donald, it’s important to use his first day as a learning experience and to follow and do exactly what Hudson does in this ten minute comedy for a cast of five. Because Hudson knows he’s the best.

But will it be Donald who ends up showing Hudson a thing or two?

THE DUEL – TEN MINUTE COMEDY FOR TWO ACTORS

In this ten minute comedy for two actors, a valiant knight (who may be slightly past it in age) comes across a knight of a similar age. Being such a brave knight, he decides the thing to do is to challenge the other knight to a duel.

But you can’t just do that without protocol. You have to have a reason first. In these cases, the best thing to do is to start with a small insult. About his mother. Being a Saxon. If that doesn’t work, then perhaps telling him all about yourself and your mighty exploits throughout the land may help to inspire him to fight you. For example, how many dragons you singlehandedly vanquished, how many maidens you rescued from eternal imprisonment and how many of your mortal enemies died under your sword. That sort of thing.

But what do you do if the other knight does exactly the same thing?
