New Farce

The Princess and the Wizard

By Murray J. Rivette

FARCE. The Queen is determined to find a princess to marry her son, but it isn’t an easy task since the Prince is a childish videogame geek. The sophisticated, mature Princess Gladys is a perfect pick for the Prince, so the Prime Minister asks the resident Wizard to concoct a love potion that will make Princess Gladys fall in love with the Prince. The Wizard consults a spell book he bought on sale at Wal-mart, and through an act of “wiz-dumb,” the Princess ends up falling madly in love with the Prime Minister instead. Enraged, the Prince calls upon his assassin to get rid of the Prime Minister, but it turns out this “assassin” never actually kills anyone.  He just gives them money and a one-way ticket to New Jersey!

Camp Comedy

Camp Soap

By Dan Eden

FARCE. Your audience will roar with laughter! A group of wannabe actors converge at Camp Soap to hone their acting skills under the tutelage of washed-up soap opera star Dirk Svenson. The actors include a man with an enormous amount of testosterone, an idiotic Barbie doll look-alike, a Goth, an insecure dork, a pair of movie extras, and a couple of Dirk-a-holics. Not only do the campers have to put up with Dirk’s enormous ego, his entourage, and his theatrical rants, but they have to sleep on the floor or in chairs since there are no beds in the cabins—only posters of Dirk. But the campers’ gladly suffer the camp’s hardships after Dirk announces that the campers will be cast in a new soap opera pilot, “The Day Before Wednesday” (Tuesday), which will hopefully launch Dirk’s comeback. The campers eagerly begin rehearsing so they can impress the Oxygen network executives while Dirk unsuccessfully tries to romance one of the campers.
