I have to write a 10 minute play in English on a topic of my choosing. I'm in High School and I need a couple of ideas. I'm pretty good when it comes to writing, it just takes me a while to come up with a topic. I was thinking maybe something funny, dramatic, or a mystery.
Think of a word that can be used two or more ways..... for instance, "dove".
Then suppose that someone stole it, but everyone is mistaken as to motive, possibility, because they are thinking about the wrong "dove". This could provide all sorts of possiblities for old fashioned slap-stick humor.
Why not write on the frustrations of trying to write this play or completing some other homework assignment?
Whatever you choose, try to pick a topic that is familiar.
I hope this helps.
