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?
