A FAMED LIFE – TEN MINUTE COMEDY FOR TWO WOMEN

Picture it. You’re famous, super rich, and adored by your fans. Basically, you’re a little spoiled and let’s face it, slightly past your prime. And today, of all days, Yvette, your faithful, um, um… (well, you can’t call them servants nowadays, darling) up and leaves you. And she has the audacity to tell you exactly why in this ten minute comedy for two women.

A LOVE – NEVER FORGOTTEN – HUMOROUS  DRAMA FOR MATURE ACTORS

Just an old folks’ home? No. This community is more than that. It houses Rose, Alice, her husband Gordon, Ted and Jill. In this one act dramedy, it is a retirement village for mature and independent
individuals, thank you very much.

Of course it makes sense then that the most, ahem, senior ones have the deepest secrets hidden from those who ought to know them best and know truths that would shock the ones who’ve ‘seen it all’. Enter Ives (literally) whose visits to the home are to view it with the intention of perhaps moving in soon. His latest visit unravels Alice’s panic at a ghost from Christmas past. When Ives and Alice do ultimately face each other, Alice is presented with the face of a ghost alright… one that sweet, unassuming, Rose may know everything about in this humorous drama for mature actors.
