Odin visits Christ – Short comedy skits for two actors

short comedy skits



A short skit for two actors in which Odin pops round to Christ’s house for a visit (and possibly a bit on the side.)   Odin is a bit down because of his lack of followers lately, other than the occasional nutter in a caftan. Christ helpfully points out that Odin’s followers slaughtering all his potential converts in battle could potentially be the source of the problem? They lament that state of religion nowadays  (Even Satan has opened a club (with air conditioning) in Soho.) and generally have a good old natter about the state of the world and what Odin’s wife wants for Christmas this year.

Two Cats, No Dogs! Ten minute romantic plays

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.

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.

“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…

Stag – two-hander drama (poignant comedy) script for two actors

full length drama scripts


Two Englishmen are out of place, out of time and dangerously low on vodka…

In this two-hander drama script,  two old friends, John and Davvo, stage a reunion after a lapse of 10 years in a hotel room in an East European city. John is on the brink of marriage while Davvo, his best man, has embraced a life of carefree debauchery.  They find the battered charm of the city they remembered has evaporated, replaced by rampant consumer capitalism and belligerent British stag-nighters. At the same time, they’re painfully aware of the death of their own youthful idealism and John’s ambivalence about his impending marriage.

Over the course of an evening, they probe each others’ insecurities, finally agreeing to spend a “lost weekend” together, during which their friendship is tested to crisis point.

The producer and playwright Giles Morris was inspired to write Stag when returning to a small ex-Soviet capital after 10 years and seeing that while the city had been transformed by globalization, the ex-pat community were largely unaltered.

‘Stag’ was produced at the Courtyard Theatre, London, in October 2011.

“A concoction of sharp humour and tension that challenges our ideas of romance and commitment, security and freedom. Both actors give excellent performances in a bold play that will leave you talking and thinking for many nights afterwards.” www.remotegoat.com

Type: One act play

Length: Seventy minutes
