FOLLOWING DOGS – A POIGNANT COMEDY – TWO HANDER ONE ACT PLAYS

 

In this bittersweet comedy for two actors, Jack, a thirty to forty-ish year old guy, who has just lost his job as a janitor believes that he has finally found the secret to health and happiness. Jack becomes obsessed with his new found ‘elixir,’ cooking up jars of the stuff and drying it in his kitchen.  This new found obsession, coupled with the fact that Jack is terrified of having kids, because of years of abuse at the hands of his father, results in his wife leaving him.

Marty, his wife’s brother, believes in Jack, and knowing that Jack loves his wife dearly, and vice versa, tries to cure Jack of his obsession and repair the rift in his marriage.  This two-hander one act play is strictly a drama, but written in a very witty way, which allows very touchy subjects to be spoken about with humor and understanding.

Author: Tim Garvin

Genre: Drama or poignant  comedy

Type:  Two hander one act plays

Length:  One hour

Number of Actors:  Two, 2M

Ages of Actors:   Late twenties to early forties

Set: A shabby, fairly barren apartment. At right is a stove, a sink, a counter top with a toaster, a table with three chairs. There are two doors, at the back and at the side. A few prints are tacked to the wall—flowers, landscapes, a painting or two. In the center of the stage are two chairs, one well padded, the other straight-backed and wooden. Beside the well padded chair is an end table. On the stove is a covered pan.

Level of Difficulty:   7/10 – the dialogue flows well, but the actors will need to focus on the interaction between the two characters.
