Date with Death

    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.
