Quotes & Highlights

Play Dates got great Goldstar reviews in its world premiere at Hollywood’s Elephant Theatre.
“The scene in the bedroom (with another appearance by Bond) is absolutely hilarious. Even as I write these words, I can’t help chuckling to myself!”
“The excellent cast delivers on all counts and Jennifer Chambers’ minimalist set and direction helps to focus the action on the characters and their antics. This Green Beetle production is easily one of the funniest comedies of the season.” —
“Playwright Sam Wolfson of the phenomenally successful Jewtopia is just warming up! Delightfully disarming take on the travails of finding and maintaining love.” --Los Angeles Times, Critic’s Choice
“The war between the sexes has never been funnier than it is in Play Dates, Sam Wolfson’s hilarious new comedy!” —Stage Scene L.A.
“Reaps plenty of laughs, including the slightly embarrassed laughter of recognition.” —Backstage
“The cast is marvelous, with great timing and chemistry!” _-Tolucan Times _

Play Dates is a play all about love, falling in, falling out and everything in between. From the childhood innocence of your first everlasting crush, to the challenge of trying to keep the spark alive after ten years of marriage, to the tortuous single years in between when you think you’ll never find anybody, Play Dates hilariously reminds us that love is never easy…and kindergarten is just the beginning.
