Something has happened in the world but we can't see what it is through the claustrophobically taped up windows throughout this story, until the protagonist steps outside at the end.

The Old Cold Steel

By Nigel Dobson


Drama, Family, Bathroom, Bedroom, Hallway, House, Four Pages

A curious story that twists around like a snake, intentionally pushing you to think one thing and then another all the way through, leaving you pondering the reality of online profile images and body-image.

James pays a visit to a suburban house where things are not what they seem. Interactions with a woman at the door and a young lad upstairs play out in zig-zag fashion until the purpose of the visit is revealed... but even that has layers of intrigue wrapped around it.

Quite a handful in a 4-page script, but something worthwhile to get your teeth into.

Being Positive

By Timothy Kestrel


Drama, Tragedy, Bedroom, Two Pages, Trigger - Suicide

This is a dark, intense story about an alcoholic man who has to face a visit to his doctor and shows how he deals with the outcome of the news he receives.

Set in just one room at the start and end of a single day, his path from functioning alcoholic to suicidal desperado is certainly one that any actor would love to get their teeth into.

It has been written for a male actor but could be easily adapted for a female.

You will need some minor props, great foley and clever use of lighting to really bring this to life.

Drama, Hallway, House, Two Pages

A drama with a twist about what happens after a devastating breakup, and who gets custody of the loved ones?

A compact story set in one location but requiring heaps of character from the actors. Will need a little bit of foley in the edit too, but we can help with that.
