Okay, so... Has anyone read any Shakespeare?
Shakespeare's plays are full of cases of mistaken identity. The Bard was fascinated by it.
My latest idea for a reasonably short but intense plot is based around this classic idea. I'm sure this has been done loads of times, but it would be fun to do as a plotline just to see what happens.
The Cast: (Note: names are arbitrary and can be changed if required.
Amber Stoneley - 16 year old transfer student, just moved into the area, lesbian, artistic, identical twin.
Beryl Stoneley - 16 year old transfer student, just moved into the area, straight, scientific, identical twin.
Carmine Redgrave - 16 year old high school student, cheerleader, sexually undecided but leaning towards lesbian
Dirk Steelmeister - 17 year old high school student, jock, straight, quarterback.
Mr and Mrs Stoneley
Mr & Mrs Redgrave
Mr & Mrs Steelmeister
Various Friends of Carmine and Dirk
Well it should be fairly obvious. A pair of identical twins start at a new school. One is gay and falls for a pretty girl who is not averse to her attentions. The other is straight and falls for a really gorgeous guy.
The guy then finds himself sitting next to the gay twin, and the girl finds herself with the straight twin. Obviously both twins are like "Eeewww, get off me you perv"... leaving the two other characters feeling hurt, and rejected. Then later that day the right twins find their respective partners and ... well, you get the picture?
The whole thing can be confused by the classic "Hey how the hell did you get here, I thought you were over there..." gag.
The twins probably don't start out doing it deliberately, but when they realise what is happening probably decide it's hilarious and start causing mayhem, deliberately swapping places.
Of course eventually it all gets sorted out and they end up with the right partners...
I need two girls and a boy, please. One girl needs to be gay and one straight, or either can be bi. The boy needs to be straight.
You must be able to use a spill chocker [sic] , be capable of writing at least 250 words in a post, and have some good ideas for how to keep the story moving.
I will play either Amber or Carmine, but not Beryl.
Please post here if interested.
This is not going to be first come first served, but if you don't express an interest, you ain't gonna get in! I reserve the right to choose whom I wish to write with!
Please indicate which character you would prefer to play when posting.
Yeah, forgot to say... this is a light, romantic comedy.
