Sticky – ten minute farcical comedy

ten minute farcical comedy


In this ten minute farcical comedy, Phil is cheating on his wife with a gorgeous blonde who he is meeting in a local restaurant. He has also just gotten a big promotion at work, which may be due to the fact that his wife is also the boss’s daughter. When Phil goes over to greet a work colleague, Jim (who is out with his own wife celebrating their anniversary) before meeting his yummy blonde and the boss walks in, Phil has to improvise, and fast. So he chooses the traditional route. Under the table.

Sticky was chosen as one of eight plays to be produced at the King’s Short festival of One act plays in Nova Scotia on June 16, 17 and 18 2017.

In this ten minute comedy for two actors, desperate to defeat a playwriting deadline, the team of Hugh and Emma strike terror in their own hearts to get the creative juices flowing again. When these two writers strike or take meetings, they sharpen their pencil wits over which stories are tried-and-true and those that can’t miss. If that doesn’t work, they risk banter whilst barely remembering how to fly a biplane.
