ten minute comedy for two actors


In one hysterical act, a man and woman each get ready for a date with one another, while contemplating the night ahead. Both divorced, Stanley Kramer (a doctor) and Alice Adler (who works in medical research) have been set up on a blind date by their friends and it’s hardly a boring evening of preparation. We get the perspective of each suitor as they ready themselves for a night of ‘putting on’. ‘Putting on’ the charm and ‘putting on’ the confidence. Basically: Putting on a show. In “Blind Date” it’s all about the potential that comes with meeting someone new and how stressful that really is in this one act comedy for two actors.

If dying alone is the other alternative may the blind dates keep on coming!

Author: Tanis Galik

Genre: Comedy

Type: One act comedy for two actors

Cast: 1M 1F

Ages of the actors: Not stipulated. Both are divorced, so one assumes thirties up.

Suitable for: Teens up to perform and all ages to watch

Length: Twenty minutes

Set: The stage is divided into two bedrooms—-one feminine, one masculine. The rooms are separated by an imaginary wall which includes a full-length mirror (empty of glass) that both characters use simultaneously. The lady’s boudoir has a dressing table with a large mirror (empty of glass) that has its back to the audience so they can watch the woman while she primps. There is a smaller, freestanding make-up mirror on the tabletop. The man’s room contains a dresser and a sink with similar mirrors. Both rooms, with articles of clothing tossed about and unmade beds, look like a flurry of activity has just occurred.

Level of difficulty: 7/10 both characters have to appear to be alone but bounce lines off the other at the same time.
