FOREIGN THERAPY – TONGUE IN CHEEK POLITICAL COMEDY SCRIPT

Read all about it! Read all about it! A new island has been discovered slap bang in the middle of the sea between the USA and Russia (And let’s not forget Canada, of course) . The leaders of each powerful nation are there, vying for ownership of the island in this tongue in cheek political comedy script.

Now, in every doomed marriage there is a mediator, someone whose job it is to smooth things over, as it were. Russia and America hate one another, so his job isn’t going to be easy. Canada has come to the party too, but that wasn’t the mediator’s idea. And because it wasn’t his idea, it’s clear he isn’t going to let Canada have a say, even though he has loads of good ideas.

Now this poor mediator’s task is to get them to agree on something. As the testosterone levels in the room rise, both Russia and America are finally united in the idea that they will go to war with each other over this tiny patch of land and the mediator is finding it more and more difficult and is considering abandoning the whole thing and going for lunch instead.

Enter North Korea. He’s brought popcorn.

A TALE OF TWO BALCONIES – MODERN ROMEO AND JULIET COMEDY

Sorry, love, the old Romeo can’t come to the phone right now – he’s too busy thinking of the paths to his beloved’s (Juliet’s) heart …but the new Romeo can come to the phone, in fact he’s glued to it ‘cause the hot Juliet, is on the other line. In A Tale of Two Balconies, modern Romeo/Juliet and Shakespearean Juliet/Romeo share with us the agony of love in a one act comedy that boldly puts the ‘crossed’ in ‘star-crossed’ as the two couples intertwine in a quirky retelling of the dramatic classic. The differences between modern-day flirting and the courtships of yesteryear are explored in the most comical yet thought-provoking way and in an illuminating style, the whims and wild imaginings of teenagers are studied. It wouldn’t be ‘Romeo and Juliet’ without the element of disaster we’ve come to associate with the romance and when the Romeo and Juliet pairs cross paths, hilarious consequences arise leading to the conclusion that boys will be boys and are indeed from Mars and girls? Well, we all know (or don’t know) about them in this modern Romeo and Juliet comedy.

Tis awesome to feel the fluttering’s that arise from the passions of the heart!
