Street Theatre – ten minute comedy for three actors

ten minute comedy for three actors


Picture it: A cafe and a typical couple sitting at a table waiting to be served. A beleaguered and bored waitress who wants to take their order. Sounds pretty normal, right? Well – she’s  (the female half of the couple) just been to improv theater class and the cafe is about to become her new stage, much to the astonishment of the other diners, the embarrassment of her partner and the confusion of the waitress in this ten minute comedy.
