Date with Death

TEN MINUTE: Dating is hell. Rather than deal with the awkwardness of turning someone down, Angela prefers murder. However, this time, her baggage does not go unnoticed.

    Thank God for comedies. Funny, irreverent, and with a kernel of truth, this is 10-minutes that just lets you laugh and have fun.

    This play is hilarious because it's kind of universal. I mean, who HASN'T wished they could kill someone rather than have to go through the awkwardness of rejecting them?

    I have to admit that, while Angela's moral stance is a little Shakey, she brought up some fair points about dating, rejection, fragility and mercy. Hayet's Date with Death works on so many levels - from what men expect and what that means to women, what people will put up for a chance at romance, the value of human existence be it with lovers, friends, or coworkers - and it's absolutely hilarious on every one! Lots of belly laughs and great roles for three actors with deadly deadpans.
