Check Please by Jonathan Rand. Dating can be hard. Especially when your date happens to be a raging kleptomaniac, or your grandmother's bridge partner, or a mime. Check Please follows a series of blind dinner dates that couldn't get any worse -- until they do. Could there possibly be a light at the end of the tunnel?
[5 Males/6 Females 21+ years old]
A Chance Meeting by Frederick Stroppel. A man and a woman in a lounge glance, nod and speak in this bewitchingly comic piece. They have nothing in common but are attracted to each other. When another man enters and calls the first by a different name, he explains that the woman is really his wife and the pretense is merely to add spice to their marriage. The fur flies when the woman makes a pitch for the second man.
