SIX DAYS TILL SUNDAY – ONE ACT COMEDY PLAYS FOR TEENS AND AMDRAM

When two friends discover the bodies of two famous missing journalists in a mountain log cabin, miles from where the two were supposed to have disappeared, they read their diary, discovering that the journalists were in fact faking their disappearance in the Australian outback. The two had decided to hide out in the mountains and return, triumphant to reality, having narrowly escaped death in the ”outback.” But in that case, why had they died?

As the two friends read through the diary, one of them decides on a grisly plan to ‘discover’ the bodies of the famous duo, thus bringing fame and fortune to himself.

Six days till Sunday was performed at  the State of Arkansas Regional International Thespian One Act Festival  in Fayetteville, Arkansas in November and  received all superior ratings for its production of Six Days Till Sunday. The one act was selected by the adjudicators to be preformed at the Arkansas State International Thespian Festival in February of 2018.
