Uncovered – romantic drama script

romantic drama plays


A man and woman have been living together in a small Chicago apartment. She has been working to pay the bills while he works on a novel, but he’s developed writer’s block, and it’s been eating away at his confidence, and lessening her attraction to him. The rift has gotten to the point where she’s been spending most of her time at a friend’s place.
He goes to see her at work and watches her in a different light as she floats around her restaurant interacting with the customers. Then they go out for drinks, and their passion is rekindling.

We hear them as they ascend the stairs to their apartment, bumping against the walls as they release from each other’s embrace long enough to unlock the door.

Inside we watch as they work out their relationship, one that began with a mutual love of books, one helped to be put back together – and almost taken further apart – by the books in their life.

Early Liberty – two act drama plays

two act drama plays


“Life is about paying attention to the right things,” but what happens when the people and places you consider safe aren’t? What is “safe” and who spells “Home”?

When Mark Haywood follows the beacon into Lighthouse Cove nothing is what it seems. But if Mark’s world is falling apart—despite increasingly-frantic efforts to keep it together, then the hotel proprietor and his family need a special kind of rescue from each other. Just what will it take for Selma to grow up and for Mark to wake up? Can these dueling opposites save the hotel and find a way to be together? Set in 1985 on the Atlantic shore, Early Liberty explores the limits and boundlessness of love and hope, and the darker side of what it means to dream.

Early Liberty is a play about false fronts and true love, about crossed wires and yardsticks we never measure up to.  This dramatic love story is especially relevant now, especially as regards women’s status, and the parallels between the idealized Reagan Era and the “world as it is today” to reveal that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.”

Early Liberty was produced at Texas State University (Lab Theatre) January 31-February 3, 2013.The play has already been workshopped but the author is open to minor changes, authorized in writing. Read more about playwright Rita Anderson

Aldous Remembers – Romantic drama Plays

Aldous Bentley has a problem: he is prone to dangerous sleep walking and forgetfulness. His memory often eludes him; he can’t remember his wedding day, or precious moments he’s accumulated in his life. Now, after one year of marriage to his beloved wife Wanda, he often fails to remember anything that involves their time together.

One night during a small gathering at the home of their longtime friend’s Vance and Lisa Shante’ Aldous confesses to Vance in the kitchen that because of his inability to remember significant moments with Wanda, he feels he may not be in love with her, and that she is the wrong woman.

Meanwhile in the living room Wanda confides in Lisa that she too is not sure she married the right man, and that his fleeting memory and odd sleep walking has smothered the fiery passion she once had for Aldous. With lost memories from Aldous and growing frustration from Wanda, will the Bentley’s love survive this early test in their marriage?

Lovers of fine wine, the Shante’s and Bentley’s soon discover the complications involved in matrimony. Only time and the partaking of fine libations bought from their meeting place of Ithaca, New York, a place for which both couples share fond memories, will tell in this touching drama as each come upon revelations in their marriages.

Aldous remembers, a drama layered with humor and honesty examines the connection of love and memories, and how we deal with the potential realities of losing people we cherish in our lives and the moments we spend with them.
