Less Than a One-Act Play – “A Friend Named Gwen”

I’m considering a new blog feature of plays that are shorter than one-act plays. I think they’ll be a great fit for actors with memory challenges or audiences with short attention spans. See what you think.

A Friend Named Gwen

Curtain opens as a daughter approaches her father to ask a favor.

Daughter: Dad, can I have Gwen over?

Father (sarcastically): Stefani?

Daughter: No Doubt!

Curtain closes to hearty laughs and thunderous applause. By the way, my 14-year-old daughter who is having a friend named Gwen come over didn’t understand this. Choose your actors and audience carefully when presenting “A Friend Named Gwen.”
