Comedy Play Script: 'Celebulite' by Derek Webb

Synopsis

We live in a celebrity-obsessed society. So, when minor-celebrities measure their success on how many times they have appeared on a reality TV show and how often they are recognised in the street, what must it be like for them to lose their looks overnight? In 'Celebulite', we meet Victoria Ingram-Brown – who wakes up one morning to discover she has aged 20 years – and Russell, who has put on five stone.

Both turn up at their agents, Hobson Associates, to discover that he has moved offices and the cleaner, Katherine, can’t (or won’t) provide any information.  Their frustration and anger builds as they contemplate what their futures will be now that their appearance has so radically changed. For Victoria it is devastating, while Russell is slightly more philosophical.

But everything changes again when Margery, Harry Hobson’s PA, arrives on the scene.  Is something altogether more sinister happening, or is this reality TV gone mad?  'Celebulite. examines the cult of the celebrity in a witty yet thought-provoking way.

This is a thought-provoking and very funny piece of theatre.” South Wales Evening Post review

  • Margery: 30s to 50s, PA to the owner of Hobson Associates, calm, professional, a bit scary probably
