A full-length comedy by John Morogiello
from an idea by Lori Boyd & John Morogiello
1W / 1M or 3W /3 M
Playing Time: Approximately 90 minutes

What do Missy, Carol and Deb and Blaine, Trent, and Rowan have in common? Besides a farcical day of adult play while chaos ensues in the playroom? Parenthood? Dysfunction? Sex? Tequila, Band-Aids and kitchen knives? A cry for humanity? Well, yes, but – actually − the female roles are played by the same woman and the male roles are played by the same man, all in quick change. (Unless of course the director with permission from the playwright decides otherwise.) In any case, it’s one of the freshest, most engaging contemporary plays of the year and is destined to become the 30’s-something classic of the decade. But don’t take our word for it. Says Jennifer Georgia of DC METRO THEATRE ARTS, “Play Date is a new step in theatrical evolution — a serio-comic farce. It is funny, certainly, but also rich, deep and even poignant.” “Play Date skewers pretensions, misapprehensions, and the insularity of people, but it never skewers the humans trying to find their footing and purpose,” says Mary Ann Johnson, MD THEATRE GUIDE. If you are looking for a play that will truly bring younger adult audiences through the door, this is it! It may raise an eyebrow or two from the older crowd but they’ll love it just the same. $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
