Comedy Scenes for 2 Women
Nice People Dancing to Good Country Music
by Lee Blessing
Eve Wilfong, who lives over the "Nice People Dancing to Good Country Music Bar," is paid a visit by her niece Catherine Empanger, a novice nun who's been asked to leave her convent. It seems Catherine suffers from a curious compulsion to yell obscenities at the wrong moment, and even, on occasion, bark like a dog. Roy, an honest if simple fellow from the bar downstairs, wants to court Catherine whether she's a nun or not. Eve feels she should give her niece the benefit of her experiences with men before allowing her to venture back into the mad modern country world. What follows is not simply comic and well-observed, but romantic and affecting as well.
Three scenes from this play are:
1) For two women: Catherine explains her predicament to Eve.
2) For one man one woman: Eve's son Jason walks in on Catherine while she is reading and tries to hit on her, even though she is older than him...and his cousin. The result is less creepy and more pathetic.
3) For one man one woman: Roy convinces Catherine to dance with him.

The Odd Couple
by Neil Simon
Neil Simon wrote "The Odd Couple" in the 1960s. In the mid 1980s he "adapted" it to a female version. The script, particularly in this part remained almost identical. To make this script the "female version" change Oscar to Olive and Felix to Florence. Change the pronouns as necessary.
Gruff sloppy divorced sports writer Olivee is having his poker night with the girls disrupted by her friend Florence. Florence has just been kicked out of his house by her husband and needs a place to stay. They are friends but complete opposites. This scene is a fight toward the end of the play. It is important to remember this play was written as a mainstream comedy in the 1960s. They are not gay. The reference to a "marriage" is ironic and played for laughs because the women are obviously straight and gay marriage was not a thing then. There are several ways to cut the scene.
