Notechtheatre One-Act Plays


A one-act comedy by David Moberg

The Story - 2 female/2 male or Expandable cast

Perfect selecton for High School Thespian Competitions!

Mystery, a one-act comedy presents light hearted, fast paced glances at life's funniest and perplexing mysteries. These entertaining vignettes, woven together by snappy transitions, promise to keep the audience laughing and wonderfully engaged.  Audience participation abounds as audience members are plucked from their seats and drawn into the action.

*Like the Mystery of Love - We see two people who absolutely do not belong together.... get together....  And we heard everything they say and everything they think!

*Or the young man who maybe shouldn't have picked up that beautiful young lady who SAID she ran out of gas by that deserted and haunted farm....

*Or the perfect murder.... where audience members have to play all the characters!

Because this play requires no scenery, no special lighting, no formal stage space, this play tours easily and performs effectively in any venue.... classrooms, clubhouses, private restaurant dining rooms and/or church fellowship halls. No complicated load-in or set up.... just four chairs that move around to create the play's many scenes!

The expandable cast size, the audience participation, the careful blocking, the meticulous comic timing, and the necessity for the performers to create many different and distinct characters make this play a valuable teaching tool for actors and actresses..... and a wonderful evening's entertainment for social, school, or civic events.

Mystery is scripted for four performers, two men and two women, but easily adapts to use six to ten performers.  An even number of actors to actresses is recommended.

Mystery plays continuously for approximately forty minutes.  No breaks or pauses should be taken between the vignettes. $40/$30
