| Full Length | Cameron is a hopeless romantic trying to turn online dates into real relationships to no avail until a chance second encounter with Parker. Newlyweds Morgan and Terry are discussing how to "spice things up" when they get a lot more spice than they bargained for. In this humorous exploration of relationships and gender dynamics, every character has been written to be gender-neutral. In the ideal production, actors would take turns playing different characters each night, subtly changing the context behind each line of dialogue.

    A smart, highly theatrical and frequently hilarious take on gender, dating and the search for love. Chock full of insight and wit, if it doesn't remind you of your own life it will definitely remind you of someone you know.

    An incredibly clever and sharply observed play about relationships in the 21st century with dialogue that is witty, quick, and natural. This play-- written with characters that can be played by actors of any gender-- is the ultimate playground for a director, as the casting changes the context of each line. It's a delightful, thoughtful, funny and subtilely thought-provoking play.
