short play script
Sometimes we need special and unique Short Play Script to attract audience. If we give scripts always routine type, then we cannot claim for good Short Play Script. Here I am giving with all my hard work the best Short Play Script with all requirements of characters.
Scene: The reception desk at a hotel in England
Characters: The receptionist, an English tourist
The tourist arrives at the reception desk; he is wearing shorts and a very bright, multi- coloured shirt.
Receptionist: Good afternoon, sir. Welcome to the Hotel Splendido.
Tourist: Thank you.
Receptionist: Pointing at the tourist) Good heavens! Look at that!
Tourist: (Alarmed) What? Look at what?
(The receptionist indicates the tourist’s shirt.)
Receptionist: Your shirt!
Tourist: My shirt?
Tourist: Do you like it?
Receptionist: No, It’s horrible.
Tourist: I beg your pardon?
Receptionist: It’s horrible! But for you, it’s a good shirt,
Tourist: Thank you.
Receptionist: Because when people look at you, they look at the shirt.
Tourist: I know.
Receptionist: And that’s good – because if they look at the shirt, they don’t look at the shorts.
Receptionist: And the shorts are really horrible.
Tourist: Now, listen. I didn’t come here to be insulted by you.
Receptionist: Oh, you want somebody else to do it, (Calling) Hey, George, come here for a minute!
Tourist: Stop! Look, I want to book a room.
Receptionist: Book a room?
Tourist: Yes. Have you got one?
Receptionist: What? A book or a room?
Tourist: A room! Have you got a room?
Receptionist: Yes, we’ve got lots of rooms. It’s a big hotel.
Tourist: Yes, but have you got a room free?
Receptionist: No! You have to pay for it!
Tourist: I mean, Have you got a room with no one in it?
Receptionist: I don’t know.
Tourist: Well, can you have a look in the book?
Tourist: Have a look in the book.
Receptionist: A look in the book?
Tourist: Yes. Have a look in the book.
(The receptionist picks up the guest registration book, opens it, looks quickly at it and closes it again.)
Receptionist: OK. I’ve had a look in the book.
Tourist: And what do you think?
Receptionist: It’s a nice book.
Tourist: Look! Have you got a room, or haven’t you?
Receptionist: OK, OK. OK!
(The receptionist looks at the book again.)

worst receptionist that I have met in my life.

room at the hotel next door.
