Novice, The

FARCE. In this hysterical collection of two short plays, mankind’s fate lies in the hands of mere novices. In “The Novice Pilot,” a new copilot who has a fear of flying is forced to take over the plane after the pilot has a heart attack and the plane goes into a nosedive. In “I am Baron Von Drake-ula!” a washed-up vampire actor is looking to retire his role as “the greatest unknown vampire in the world” and meets his perfect replacement...a huge Baron Von Drake-ula fan and classic monster nerd. Nonstop laughs. Easy to stage.
