THE GAME OF LIFE – ONE ACT COMEDY PLAYS FOR 6 ACTORS

It’s the game of life. And there are rules. First, you need to get a job. Then you need to find a girl, get married and procreate. It’s also important to apologize to the girl when she’s wrong. It’s actually fundamental. If you get this all right, then you’ll have played the game of life and if you’re lucky, you’ll win! But when Milton tries to start the game of life at the local bus stop, it doesn’t go as well as he had planned…

TWO CATS, NO DOGS! TEN MINUTE ROMANTIC PLAYS

In this award winning romantic comedy script, a man and a woman find themselves at an art gallery, viewing a red (very red) painting. They get chatting to each other and, superimposed on their ‘chit chat’ are their thoughts – that they really and truly like each other and wish that the other would like them back. Their personal thoughts also intrude on what they’re trying to say to each other which leads to the sort of stuttering that happens when people are trying to impress each other. A lovely, funny two-hander script for one man and one woman of any age.

REVIEWS:

Redditch Advertiser, Worcesterhire, England
Produced by Mouthpiece Theatre, Worcestershire, England 2004
“Putting on a theatre performance is always a risky business. You don’t know whether the audience will turn off the telly and risk the chance of a waster evening. Mouthpiece Productions remedies this by taking theatre to the people. And if has certainly deliver the goods with its latest festival offering – Ugly Art… The show was a treat – a performance of this quality is worth traveling to watch. The show was light accessible and above all, very entertaining.

Sumter Item, Sumter, South Carolina
Produced by Urban Theater of Sumter 2004
“Three large canvases (blue, yellow and green) one bench and a small table displaying several wine glasses set the stage for “Ugly Art,” written by last year’s South Carolina playwright’s winner Terry Roueche… The play itself is sophisticated dialogue, evoking laughter through seven vignettes that explore a variety of topics – marriage, control, snobbery, fidelity and artistic talk…

IF GOD ATE FRIED CHICKEN – SHORT COMEDY SCRIPTS

If God Ate Fried Chicken is the story of Father Seacrest and Sister Blanche, secretly out on a date together to a chicken joint. Little do they know that fate has other plans for them, as uninvited outing guests begin showing up one after another, ending in the two of them hiding in the kitchen of the restaurant, and the police being called. By the end of it, all, it’s going to take a little divine intervention to keep things going even further south.

Read about playwright Timothy Starnes.

Dedication: “This script is dedicated to the one-and-only Savanah Jillani, whose winding, farcical stories of her own homeschooling inspire much of the aesthetic of the work. While as far as I know she’s never accidentally held-up a fried chicken restaurant, it all does not seem too far off, however, a bit unlikely though, seeing as she’s a vegetarian.”
