Comic Monologue, Female
Situation: A cashier is ringing up a customer's purchase – the routine questions become increasingly more personal and outrageous.
Note from Playwright: Do you have any right to privacy in a store anymore? This is a comical takedown of the commercial erosion of social norms of what it's acceptable to ask in a retail transaction. This is part of a collection of monologues I wrote for a comic character, ENVIA!, an out of work, "aspiring" actor who takes a variety of unsuitable jobs to support her acting pursuits.
Ten Minute Play
Kristy, a divorced mother, wakes suddenly from an afternoon dream to find her son, Josh, dressing for his senior prom. His father has already provided all the essentials – money, a condom, a car – and what Kristy hopes will be a chance to share a special milestone with her son becomes a poignant awakening to change, loss and letting go.
One Act Comedy
Len Sr., a widower with a green thumb and a love of Shakespeare, hoped to sell his beloved nursery so that his kids wouldn’t fight over the business after he died. His plan failed and after his death the nursery becomes a hothouse of sibling rivalry, where one kid’s hell is another kid’s heaven. Karen, an ambitious entrepreneur, takes over the floundering business to turn it around, sell it, and create capital for her next venture. But Len, who inherited his father’s passion for plants, is wedded to his father’s poetic dreams. Hurt and betrayed, he resists his sister’s plan to sell their father’s legacy. Len and Karen struggle over loyalty to their father’s memory, to themselves, and to each other, and make a surprising peace in the end.
