Comic comedy in three acts

The text of the comedy aims to communicate current issues such as those of scams by unsuspected people who with dialectics and the compliance of "friends", try in every way to cheat anyone, in the certainty of always being able to get away with it, but reality in the end will show the exact opposite. At the end of the story there will also be a decidedly surprise ending, with an unexpected reversal of roles. The apparently foolish and easily exploited character will take his revenge and demonstrate that wit and genius can be hidden much better behind an apparently dumb and harmless face. And all this to demonstrate how one should never underestimate one's neighbor and how wrong it is to have too much consideration of oneself, because the smartest person who can cheat may be just around the corner.
Unfortunately it will also be deduced that in everyday life, justice does not always triumph and that certain criminals manage not to pay completely for their misdeeds.

Dramatic comedy in three acts

When I will be reborn is a comedy with a strong social content. The drama of the situation is highlighted while using often funny dialogues. A bitter smile, in fact, will accompany the whole story. The protagonist, an elderly disabled person, gifted with great acumen and sensitivity, will find himself struggling with great pain that is not exclusively due to his handicap, but from the awareness that people he loved repay him by making him feel a useless rejection of society. First of all the son and his wife, pushed by the daughter-in-law who only aims to get rid of the old man to take over his money. Only partially will the love of the nephew relieve this burden. The tragic ending, however, will have positive implications, thanks above all to the intervention of a child, a friend of his grandson, who, with his innocence, will lead the people concerned to examine their conscience and change, even if too late.

In order to keep her daughters close to her, she will even be inclined to listen to the advice of a drunkard who proposes to her two young people who live very close instead.

A funny comedy with mysterious implications in which the unexpected, the family doctor's vacation, will lead to the discovery of a murder. What apparently seemed a death due to natural causes, will prove to be a crime premeditated by two people: the first animated by a sick love and the other by mere greed. Greed, in fact, will be the protagonist throughout the story. It is no coincidence that one of the protagonists, precisely because of the desire to grab money, will reshuffle the cards on the table, risking to be involved in the plot hatched by the real managers. The continuous alternation of characters of all kinds will highlight how much the human soul is endowed with a varied range of feelings. However, the final message is a message of hope, and there will be a happy ending: good will win over evil and truth will win over lies. So those responsible will be brought to justice, those who tried to take possession of assets not their own will pay the consequences of their actions and those who were not lucky at their birth will finally have their well-deserved happiness.

In this comedy the theme of job insecurity is ironically treated. Ernest, in fact, is an unemployed fifty-year-old who is trying to return to the world of work. In one of the many unsuccessful job interviews he will realize that after a certain age threshold a person is cut off. Hiring young people costs much less and nothing matters if all this is to the detriment of the quality of the service offered. The man, depressed and disheartened, has attempted suicide several times, because he thinks that no one will give him a chance anymore. But he is wrong because he can count on sincere friends who will concoct a grotesque plan to spur him to react. The idea is to make him reflect on an important issue that distracts him from the problem that afflicts him. Since the man would never voluntarily undergo a psychoanalysis session, his friends decide to make him do it in a somewhat unusual way, hiring a doctor who uses a rather alternative method to visit his patients, so much so that he will pretend to be a buyer of souls. Ernest, in fact, to scrape together some money, replies to a bizarre article in the newspaper and agrees to sell his own. Following his repentance he will do everything to get it back. To find enough money to get his soul back or in any case to devise a ruse to get out of that situation, he will ask for help from the same person who, without his knowledge, with the complicity of others, concocted the plan. In this story, characters of all kinds will alternate, some even quite bizarre like Ernest's sisters-in-law who seem to make their appearance only to disturb the peace of the family, but who in reality will contribute to the success of this crazy plan that will lead Ernest to regain trust in others, but above all to find a job.

To put an end to the constant intrusions into her apartment, Mary decides to take a dog as an anti-theft device. Titian, her husband, strongly opposes this decision due to the ban on keeping animals, imposed by the gruff Hannibal, one of the tenants of the building where the couple lives, but above all for fear of the repercussions on the already precarious family budget due to the hypochondria of his wife who thinks he can solve his health problems with the help of self-styled magicians. Unfortunately for him, his wife, now conquered by the little dog, is not in the least willing to change her mind and bring her new friend back to the kennel. Not having a dog's bed to let him stay in, he hands over to Cyntia, his sister, to whom he temporarily entrusts the dog, an old chair, unaware that ten thousand pounds are hidden inside the cavity of the session. After purchasing the dog's bed, the chair is thrown away. When the two sisters find out what was inside, they will desperately try to retrieve it. To gain time, Mary will insinuate the doubt to Titian that they have been victims of a theft by the usual thief who has visited their home several times. When Titian finds out that he has been duped, he will ask for an immediate refund of the money. Not being able to do this, the sister-in-law will invent the excuse of her husband's serious illness, who instead enjoys excellent health, to justify the fact that he no longer owns that money. Then Titian will give her an ultimatum: 20 days within which she can return the money. For this reason, the sisters will devise a special plan to make some money in case the finding of the chair is not successful.

In addition to the whole series of misunderstandings, there will also be some twists and turns during the unfolding of the story, for example when Titian catches red-handed the thief who systematically tries to break into his house. The man will also propose to the criminal, to avoid jail, to commit two murders. Titian, in fact, would like to get rid of the magician and his dying brother-in-law for good, before the two can leave him completely broke. The thief, however, will make him do an examination of conscience but takes his leave with the promise to repay him for not having reported him. When a dead body is found in an apartment of his building with a knife stuck in its throat, Titian will think that the man has kept his promise, but that he has the wrong person. The police investigation will shed light on the affair and allow Titian to breathe a sigh of relief. The escaped danger and the finding of the chair, in the end, will perform the miracle of making him perform a metamorphosis. In fact, Titian will decide to make his wife happy and host the new member of the family, even defying the wrath of Hannibal.
