a 12-minute comedy in English, set in a modern, cluttered office, 1999,

3m or 3f (variable casting),

;   © 1999 by D. K. Kohls;  •  in D. K. Kohls’ Registered Alien (Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, U.S.A.: The Author, 1999);  •  script/rights available from D. K. Kohls, 607 South High Street, Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin 53538, U.S.A., e-mail dkkohls@hotmail.com, telephone (home) 920-563-9273. • Cited by D. K. Kohls via ftp June 7, 2003; Kohls says,

  §  Dramatis Personae Clerk (m or f), an underpaid, overworked government worker; The Alien (Faf) (m or f), a person who really is an alien from outer space, or at least thinks he or she is; A Person in a Tan Coat (m or f), also possibly an alien.

  §  Synopsis “Faf, the alien, shows up at a government office, so that he (or she) can become a "registered alien". This, of cource, pretty much totally upsets the overworked government clerk Faf encounters. Faf is rather convincing, and charming, as he would really like to be registered as a alien, in order to rent "My Favorite Martian" from the local "Planet of the Tapes" video rental store. Faf also points out other aliens at the office, including the clerk's boss, and another person waiting in line. Faf thinks maybe the clerk is also a fellow alien, without knowing it. Good thing the clerk has some extra cat litter coupons, since Faf will not leave until he has a number.

  §  Comment “Suggestion of a modern, cluttered office. This has been called 'a really cute, and delightful little comedy'. It is easy to cast, with any age, or type, men or women. The setting can be a simple as two chairs, and a desk decorated with some junk and clutter. No special costumes are needed. The play is suitable for all ages. 'Registered Alien' was produced by the Village Playhouse of Wauwatosa as part of their yearly original one-act play festival, at the Miramar Theater, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. No royalty is charged for this play."

  §  Themes space aliens, government, modern life.
