Identity Swap

Write a story where two characters unknowingly trade places in life while everyone else around them is aware.

Dramatic irony often relies on the audience knowing more than the characters, and in this prompt, the writer will have to portray this dynamic by forcing the characters into conflicting situations while having their friends, families, and colleagues aware of the swap. The writer should tap into the comedy and complexity of the situation and how it affects their characters’ attitudes, relationships, and self-realizations.
