“Special Delivery” is a short comedy about a really good neighbor and a really bad neighbor. Howard is the bad neighbor who terrorizes the neighborhood. He finally pushes the good neighbor, David, over the edge. David decides it’s time to do something. He enlists the help of his family and friends to prepare a special package (filled with stuff they’d be flushing down the toilet anyway) to send to Howard to show him how they really feel about him.

SPECIAL DELIVERY, a Non-Union Independent film.
[DAVID] [MALE] [AGE: 40-65]
Your average, middle-aged suburbanite. He takes great pride in his home, lawn, and garden. He just wants a nice quiet place where he and his wife can relax now that they’re empty nesters. When his neighbors, Howard and Kevin, disrupt David’s plans for peace and tranquility, he knows he must do something. He begins to plot his revenge.
[LISA] [FEMALE] [AGE: 40-65]
David’s longsuffering wife. When not serving at the local hospital as a nurse, she serves as a sounding board for her husband’s crazy plans. While at first it seems that she does not approve, the plan grows on her and she decides to assist her husband, because she just loves him that much. She’s a great wife.
[HOWARD] [MALE] [AGE: late 30s-50s]
The worst neighbor ever. He and his son, Kevin, run a “business” out of their house, host crazy parties, play loud music, work on their cars late at night, steal, engage in voyeurism, and use David’s yard as their own personal trashcan, among other things. When Howard believes David is the reason behind the downfall of their business, he does something that turns out to be David’s breaking point. Howard has no idea what he is in for now.
[KEVIN] [MALE] [AGE: late teens-mid-20s]
Howard’s son and partner in crime. Kevin’s business brings in substantial revenue for the two of them. He basically does all of the same things that his father does; we easily see where he gets it. He, along with his dad, are excited when the subject package arrives, especially when he thinks it may actually belong to someone else instead. Kevin also has no idea what he is in for now.
To be cast at a later date:
[PARTIERS] [FEMALES AND MALES] [AGE: 15-70]

[“CUSTOMERS”] [FEMALES AND MALES] [AGE: 15-70]
