Losing It

    by Derek Webb


Comedy Play Script: 'Losing It' by Derek Webb


Jack is an actor who's lost for words.  Now he's also lost his leading lady – and the way things are going, he's also losing the plot and he feels he might be on the verge of losing his mind too.  Things start off well enough until it's clear that Jack's other actor has not turned up.  His attempt to keep the play going soon gets too much for one member of the audience who begins remonstrating with him then gets sucked into appearing in the play herself...

Things go reasonably well for a while, but then as the script becomes more imbecilic and it emerges that Jack himself is the author, the woman can take no more.  She comes up with a plan to save the evening and goes off to change leaving Jack to do a couple of minutes of stand up comedy before she returns as Lady Bracknell.  It is all too much for Jack but, just as he is about to give up, his missing actress turns up and we are back to the beginning.

"This is a very fine comedy with some wonderful moments. Derek Webb consistently produces first class scripts for the stage and I would urge readers to consider this or one of his other excellent plays." Amateur Stage magazine, January 2013
