Here are two short, comic plays that have won high school state festivals and competitions: THIEF BETWEEN THE FLOORS (4 m, 3 w) What would you do after the elevator stopped, the door locked, and someone said "Hands up!"? A thief robs everyone in the elevator, but they talk him out of keeping their money and valuables. They then use the same possessions to bribe the thief into saying they were the heroes. About 15 minutes. THREE IN AN ELEVATOR (1 m, 2 w) A man and his wife are stuck in an elevator with the man's first wife. The problem is that he never told his second wife that he was married before! About 15 minutes.

 

From side-splitting physical gags to clever banter and double-talk, Neal Barth infuses his plays with wit and charm. He has a way of twisting words and situations to their funniest ends and we laugh because we've been there. Great comedy touches the familiar in our human experience and Neal knows how to reach and recall those moments in our lives that we don't want to remember but always laugh about when we do remember. - The Editors
