JOINED AT THE HIP – SOUTH AFRICAN COMEDY SCRIPTS

South african comedy scripts

When Siamese twins Jack and Jill’s car breaks down in the middle of a one horse town in the South African Cape countryside, they try to rent a room in the town’s only hotel. Tensions and comedy run high when the dimwitted receptionist insists that they won’t be allowed to share a room because of them being a man and a woman because that sort of thing is simply not heard of. When the manager is called and she is found to share a similar view, Jack and Jill can hardly believe it. Joined at The Hip is a comedic view of people in small towns who have deep seated traditional values but who, at the heart of it all, have the best intentions.

Peta-Ann brings the love of her life, Leon home to meet her family for the first time.   Her parents, Robert and Glenda are naturally skeptical about a boy Peta swears is “the one” when she has only known Leon for a few short weeks. Leon is everything a girl would dream of in a guy – polite, attentive and extremely loving towards Peta. So loving, in fact, that he doesn’t want anything to get in the way of their happiness…..

A new scary psycho thriller play by our award winning author, Claire Linda Demmer, about really getting to know the man you love…………..before taking him home. The play starts off as a comedy, then depending on how it is directed, abruptly transitions into a psycho thriller or alternatively, a dark comedy.
