OOZE MONSTER – DRAMA ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS

It came to him in a terrible dream at first. A black ooze monster that was, somehow, strangely familiar. A monstrous version of himself. Then, it never left. An evil twin.  His twin. He didn’t know what to do with it.  But when a mysterious group came looking for it, he chose to protect his ‘evil twin’ because he needed to find out what it all meant in this drama about mental illness.

Then he asked another person to see it. It hurt him when she saw it. Not like any other physical assault but as though it felt pain and so it hurt him.

Once there’s a monster inside, do you choose to become it? Is there even a choice? Unleashing the madness within…

DAUGHTER LIKE YOU – FAMILY DRAMA SCRIPT

A married couple still mourning the death of their child Abby who passed away fifteen years ago are both struggling to keep their relationship alive.
David works as an engineer and his latest job will see him return to the small town where he and Maria first met and fell in love. He brings Maria along with him with the idea to rekindle their love but also for Maria to reconnect with her Sister Elle, who she has not spoken to in over a decade.

Elle and Maria quickly make up, a little too quickly but Elle fears that her own daughter Sam fifteen years old is focusing too much on a foolish career as a fashion model and is risking destroying her education and chances of going to college. Elle enlists Maria to hang out with Sam and to find out more for her, hoping that Sam will open up more to Maria than she ever would to her.

Maria now starts a close relationship with Sam, unwittingly using her to fulfill her own desires to be a mother at long last. If Abby, the child she had lost all those years ago was still alive today she would be Sam’s age. Maria wants to help Sam become a model, going against everything that Elle had asked of her and tries to convince Sam to come away with her to London to begin her modelling future and where they can exist together as mother and daughter. Secrets and lies come pouring out as everyone fights for what they really want; to be happy.
