“Substitute Teacher from Hell” is a one-woman show, any length you want (the title says it all). “Willy the Wasteland” is a comment on dull youth via a 60-second spoof of a plea-for-aid commercial.
“Two Women, Road Trip, Extraterrestrial” is a full-length comedy (a screenplay version of A Philosopher, a Psychologist, and an Extraterrestrial Walk into a Chocolate Bar): When an independent activist and her frustrated office temp buddy embark on a quest for a chocolate bar, they pick up a hitchhiking extraterrestrial who’s stopped on Earth to ask for directions. They help her get the information she needs – and discover it’s easier to get a gun in this country than a little scientific knowledge – and decide to go with her. To become chocolate bartenders.
“Balls” is a screenplay (a short mockumentary about men playing with balls), which could also be presented as a stageplay (monologue) with slide show.
Lastly, check out the monologues from This Will Not Look Good On My Resume (great for auditions) and “Adverse Reactions”.
