2 characters. 2F. 8 pages in length. Approximately 5-10 minutes running time. A funny, warm comedy for teens and adults written by Corrina Bryant.

Puppy Love is a comedy about two friends, a new love interest, and one major mix-up.  When Tiffany and Sally meet for coffee on a Saturday morning in town, Sally informs Tiffany that she’s found a new love.  Tiffany is thrilled for her at first, given Sally’s past misfortunes with men, but she soon becomes increasingly concerned as Sally continues. Is it infatuation, PTSD, or just one HUGE misunderstanding? The confusion and exasperation leads to wacky comedy in this play for teens and adults!

(Tiffany and Sally are friends meeting for a coffee and a bit of shopping on a Saturday morning in town. Tiffany is sitting down flicking through a magazine when Sally walks in.)

Tiffany
Hey babes. How are you?

Sally
I‘m good – actually I’m better than good, I’m bloody fantastic!

Tiffany
Flippin eck! Go on, tell all

Sally
I AM IN LOVE!

Tiffany
What? For real? Who with?

Sally
Oh my God, I swear, I’m that excited, I can barely sleep. I feel like a kid on Christmas eve. Honestly Tiff, I never thought I’d feel this happy

Tiffany
Nor did I! I’m surprised you’ve not been put off men for life!

Sally
(Laughing) Yeah well, let’s not waste our breath talking about that – this is a different kind of love. This is real love!

Tiffany
So when did you meet him? Fill me in

Sally
Meet her. It’s a she

Tiffany
(Choking) What?

Sally
It’s a she, not a he.

Tiffany
But, since when? I mean, I know I said about being off men .…, but I was joking! So what you’re (looks around making sure no one is listening) into girls now?

Sally
I wasn’t sure to begin with, but then I realised, they have a way nicer personality and are much prettier.

Tiffany
Yeah but, isn’t it a bit more complicated than that?

Sally
Why? Look the boy/girl thing doesn’t bother me, the fact is I have found ‘the one’ Tiffany
Where? Where did you meet her?

Sally
Online. I saw an ad, we met up and we hit if off.

Tiffany
Have you really thought about this? I mean you could just be, you know, ‘on the rebound’?

Sally
I’m positive. She’s moving in, in a couple of weeks.

Tiffany
Moving in! Sally don’t you think you’re rushing things?

Sally
No, I’m ready. I’m lonely and I could do with the company.

Tiffany
But you’ve got me!

Sally
You’re my best mate Tiff and I love you, I really do – don’t worry not in that way! But it’s not the same as having someone there when you get in from work, there in the morning. Someone to go walking with, go on holiday with.

Tiffany
Since when have you liked walking?

Sally
It’s my new thing! I’ve even bought some trainers and a cagoule.
