COMEDY. With deepest apologies, a narrator introduces two dozen “romantic” dates that go dreadfully, horribly, horrendously wrong. There’s a woman who brings a backup date on a blind date, a couple who reveals all the skeletons in their closets (never a good idea), and a couple of medical professionals who discuss their patients’ maladies over lunch. And to cap it off, cautionary dating dilemmas are examined like the potential barriers of speed-dating at a women’s prison, how to survive a golfer who relives old golf holes, and what to do when you’re attracted to someone at a family reunion but you don’t know how closely you’re related. Humorous, absurd, and sadly familiar, audiences will love this sidesplitting comedy. Easy to stage with a flexible cast and minimal props. May be performed as a staged reading if desired.
