Questions – ten minute drama for three actresses

ten minute drama for three actresses


In Questions, a ten minute drama for three actresses, Nina has a confession to make to her ‘friend’ Sandra, initially, and Rosie (who is not much of a friend either) as well. If she were honest to herself Nina would conclude two things, the first being: that she has a problem being honest and secondly: that her life is a bit of
a mess. In one hand are the lies and in the other is the mess she’s created with the lies. When both hands have her tied up, the only option she has left is to declare their contents… two days ago.

Well, the brunette stole the blonde’s man and killed him.

ten minute poignant comedy


A park bench on a summer day: this is where we find two old friends Benny & Boris, shooting the breeze over their weekly card game.  But today, the usual lighthearted shmoozing evolves into something deeper…

During their usual routine of playing cards and reading the obituaries, a deeply disturbing personal issue is revealed and Benny & Boris find their friendship put to the test.
Throughout this heartwarming, humorous one-act play, Benny & Boris discover that while the people closest to you sometimes let you down, family can be found in the most unexpected places.
Award-winning playwright Morley Shulman provides a fresh perspective on love & friendship, life & death, aging, and what family really means.

A ten minute poignant comedy with some great funny lines that deals with the sensitive subject of growing older and being best friends.

Benny & Boris took first place in the judged portion of the Paw Paw Village Players One Act Festival.
In addition, it also took home the People’s Choice Award as voted on by the audience as their favourite play.

Cuckold – ten minute period play script

ten minute period play script


In eighteenth century England, CUCKOLD is a scandalous romp that surrounds a playwright, his muse, and her hapless husband.

One flew over the cuckold’s nest. He flew over, was seen by the Cuckold and invited to enjoy the most prized piece of his household for the sanctity of the creative pursuit. In Cuckold  we are given an opportunity to observe a one of a kind domestic ‘agreement’. Simply put, the Cuckold agrees to his wife’s adultery as it aids in the flow of a certain playwright’s artistic, uh, juices in this ten minute period play script.

Pray take heed; the lady knows not what she does. Yet… the Cuckold and the playwright have been brought together for some or other plight. By surety, anonymity, complacency and zero propriety can art be well made and when sealed with a kiss, oh, the possibilities are endless…even when the kiss is shared by the unlikeliest pair!

This short was runner-up at Manhattan Repertory Theatre’s One Act Competition.
