THE PROMISE – THREE ACT DRAMA SCRIPTS

Ben doesn’t keep much company nowadays. When his neighbour, Phil comes over to play cards, Phil is concerned about the moans coming from the bedroom. Ben assures Phil that it’s only his wife, Doris. The only thing is that no one in the building has ever seen Doris. Does she even exist? And if she doesn’t, who is in the bedroom? When three burglars break into the apartment, they discover what really is in there in this drama thriller…

A harrowing tale of madness and delusion, or is it? What is real and what is a figment of imagination? A play for directors and actors to get their teeth into. If well directed it will create a lot of discussion in the audience.
