- one act comedy - 1m 1f to 1m 6f , single set (scripts £3.00 each, performances £22 each)
Unemployed Derek doesn't really want to work, and
wife Jane has had enough. After a row she walks out on him, suggesting
he should go through the papers for a job. Enraged, he decides to
advertise for a new wife. The series of applicants each looks too good
to be true at first, but finally he rejects every one. He never
realises that each has a quality he had forgotten existed in Jane, who
turns up as the final applicant. She turns the interview round on him
and offers him the job.
For festival work, the roles of one or two of the interviewees can be easily omitted if the timing is too long.
The role of Sharon (and possibly a couple of others) could be played by disabled actresses if wished.
