Religious Comedy Stage Play: PRAYERS by Ken Pisani

Title: PRAYERS: A DIVINE COMEDY IN TWO ACTS OF FAITH 

Written by: KEN PISANI

Genre: Comedy

Type: Stage Play

LOGLINE: A soldier at a checkpoint. A surgeon with her hands full. A Muslim on his lunch break. A bickering elderly couple, and two businessmen on the road. What could they possibly have in common? More than they know as a series of absurdly conflicted vignettes reveal: arguments about faith and doubt…hope and yearning…belief and skepticism. Prayers are offered fervently and reluctantly, debated and mocked. The prayers themselves are devout and smug, anguished and convicted. And always in conflict with an equal, skeptical force. Until one man tests another’s faith in a desperate attempt to know the truth.

Comedy Farce Stage Play: IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, by Christopher Hemmens

Title: In The Middle Of Nowhere 

Written by: Christopher Hemmens

Genre: Comedy

Type: PLAY

LOGLINE: “In The Middle Of Nowhere is a farcical family comedy about Kate; a 30-something, newly-cosmopolitan university lecturer who travels home to see her parents, Penny and Bill, in their new house on the weekend of her father’s 60th birthday. It isn’t long before she’s butting heads with her fiercely right-wing father while her mother tries to keep the peace. Things take a turn for the surreal, however, when a strange man called Fish, who claims to have been exiled from a cult in the woods, barges in on their breakfast and refuses to leave.”
