Trudy Tries To Say I Love You But Runs Out Of Breath

Trudy has been practicing how to kiss with trash bags. Falling in love is after all a practice, at least to Trudy, who nervously prepares for the future meeting with the love of her life. When a Janitor interrupts her kissing ritual, Trudy realizes she finally has the chance to trade in her plastic for the real thing. A play that explores how the practice of love fills us up.

    Quirky and delightful. The dialogue is so fun and refreshing and the characters are so strange in the most perfect way!

    Amazingly quirky from start to finish. Wonderful characters and dialogue and situation. Great writing.

    I really loved reading this short play. These characters are true oddballs in a bizarre scenario but there is so much truth in it. Love the imagery being painted with all the trash bags and description of the location. The playwright has a gift for lulling audiences into false comfort and throwing wacky curveballs at them.
