Waiting… Ten Minute Short Romantic Play

SHORT ROMANTIC PLAY

WAITING… TEN MINUTE SHORT ROMANTIC PLAY

He’s going on a blind date. To the library of all places? She’s told him very little about herself, just that she’s interested in art, books, museums, and classical music. He has no idea what she looks like at all. So when he tentatively approaches a woman reading and mentions that he is on a blind date and waiting for someone, they get into a conversation. She helpfully points out that although he thinks he’s good looking, he really could dress better to impress this girl. He replies he just wants a girl without a nose ring he could take home to meet his mother. Various women entering the library are examined to see if they could be the woman he is waiting for. In the end – who does it turn out to be?

THE MIRROR – A COLLECTION OF TEN MINUTE PLAYS

Intended as an evening of dinner theatre or for a charity performance, this collection of ten minute plays combines six stories which are linked by a common theme: A mirror. Old, tarnished and apparently priceless. We follow the journey of the mirror through the evening. From the burglary where the burglar steals it for his wife, to the thrift shop where the wife (who never really liked it anyway) dumped it, to the purchase of the mirror by a rich old lady, certain of its value and antiquity. The old lady passes away and then the mirror gets bought from her estate by a young girl. We then see the mirror in the girl’s apartment, in a shop front window at a travel agent and finally getting sold by two homeless people who are convinced they’ve just pulled off the biggest scam of their lives.

Bar the short introductory piece, each play stands well on its own. rare collection by best selling and award winning American playwright Jean Blasiar. This play is available both in digital and printed format.
