SPECIFIC INFO FOR ONE “POP-UP” PLAY:
Come Audition for “A DATE: IN SIX ROUNDS” by Julie Demers!
(one act, comedy, approx. 25-30 min).
A typical young man and woman (Female, Male) endure a first date together. Each is haunted by society’s expectations, represented by “voices” (played by Female 2 and Male 2), who follow them throughout their date, telling them how they are expected to behave! No one but Male or Female can hear or see these voices, until things begin to fall apart at the end. On top of that, the date is divided into rounds (gettting ready, going to dinner, getting coffee, etc.) after each of which the Announcer tallies up their points! (And you thought your first date was stressful!)
CAST OF CHARACTERS
Female: A regular girl going on a first date.
Male: A regular guy going on a first date.
Female 2: Female’s voice who tells her what society expects her to do.
Male 2: Male’s voice who tells him what society expects him to do.
Announcer: Announces the rounds. May remain onstage or exit after each announcement.
Waiter: Waits on tables. He can be played by the same actor as Man.
Man: A man in the cafe. He can be played by the same actor as Waiter.
Waiter 2: Former flame of Female. He can be played by the same actor as Waiter 3.
Waiter 3: Former flame of Female. He can be played by the same actor as Waiter 2.
(AGES: All characters are in their 20s/30s. Waiter, Announcer and Man can be older.)
