Really Adult

Finalist: Actor's Theatre of Louisville's Heideman Award, 2017

TEN MINUTE: Julie would love to have a great first day working the Customer Service desk at Target, but maybe not as much as flirting with Frank, the employee assigned to train her. As the two discuss a possible date their personal lives become more and more clear, which leads to awkward territory.

Really Adult

    A really tight cohesive look at human relationships and the different trajectories (and speeds) in which an adult's life can unfold. Compelling, realistic characters and a relatable concept.

    This is all too real - dialogue and characters. The guy does seem "really adult" compared to this girl. She right out of her mother's house, and the guy's way beyond that. However, both have had some challenges. The old adage "There's many more fish in the sea" doesn't entirely fit here.

    This is an absolutely lovely play. Clear and compelling characters on a journey that you think you can predict, but which surprises you in the way it surprises the characters--which is exactly how their lives have surprised them as they've reached adulthood. There is a finely wrought blend of joy and heartbreak in this piece, and two characters you care about and root for romantically, and then care about even more deeply as their "targets" shift during their Target shift. Precise and heartfelt work.
