THE HEIRS – BRITISH COMEDY SCRIPT

Margaret Hubbard is rich; painfully and decadently rich. Mrs. Hubbard is also dead and according to her will she is determined to drive her husband crazy (one last, exquisite time) with a to-do list that would have him claim the will’s contents only upon the doings on the list being completed. In fact, the rest of those on the receiving end of said will (who are interestingly enough mostly Hubbard
Manors’ staff) may only receive their inheritance should Mr. Hubbard succeed. This is a story we have seen time and again: what adversity can teach the hero about themselves, when they commit to taking on the challenge and the tricky consequences thereof. It’s a story about our hero, Jeremy Hubbard, husband to a recently deceased dragon and how he endeavours to fulfil his destiny and
claim what is ‘rightfully’ his – a temptingly sumptuous inheritance, of course. Our hero faces the dragon beyond the grave with the help of the staff and the fire-breathing lizard’s lawyer. And the
lesson? It begins and ends as the story does; with insatiability.

HE’S A NERVOUS NELLIE – ABSURD COMEDY SCRIPT

When Nelson, a psychiatrist arrives at the home of Maryanne and Lisa, he brings some bad news – that Lisa’s dad has left. Naturally he’s nervous about telling them the news. But then again, he’s always nervous. He even has a number of pills to help him be less nervous (And help him sleep, and help his digestion.) In fact his profession as a psychiatrist gives him access to a good many things to help him cope.

He finds instead that Lisa (Who is a child prodigy and well aware of it) already knows that her father has left and has made up her mind that Nelson had better move in with them to help her mother cope with the recent events. Being too nervous to say no, he agrees. But what will his domineering , managing wife say?
