A 1 Act Play suitable for Drama Festivals
Running time: approximately 45 mins
Wendy and Rob could not afford a honeymoon when they got married and decided to push the boat out to celebrate their 25th Wedding anniversary. It feels like Deja Vu as their dream holiday of a Caribbean cruise is snatched away due to Coronavirus. Their holiday time booked off, they are faced with two weeks at home.
All is not well as we join them at the start of their staycation. Despite Wendy’s attempts to spice things up by recreating a Caribbean experience at home. It would seem that no amount of Amazon deliveries can lift the mood. But when Rob goes to answer the door, it is not a package but Portia and Marcus suitcases in tow and ready for their weekend away.
Not only did Rob not tell Wendy that he had put their house on Airbnb for a bit of holiday money; when things changed he forgot to cancel the booking.
Portia and Marcus are tired, bemused and have no intention of leaving. With apparently little in common; they look to make the best of a bad situation. As the alcohol flows, so does the conversation. As the evening progresses we are left wondering if this will turn into Wish you were here or Holidays from Hell?
