Review from Carol G.

Really enjoyed this play. Both actors were very good. We felt like we were listening to two people having a real, unrehearsed conversation. Near the end of the first half I was laughing so hard that I was crying, and that has never happened to me...continued

Review from Tony B

An outstanding performance by Leslie Hardy Loyd and Jerry Lloyd. So vividly done that it felt real. A really special performance, well worth seeing for a down to earth look at life in early middle age (if I can remember so far back).

Description

The setting is a walk-up apartment on Manhattan’s West Side where, as the curtain rises, Frankie (a waitress) and Johnny (a short-order cook who works in the same restaurant) are discovered in bed. It is their first encounter, after having met several weeks ago on the job, and Frankie is hopeful that Johnny will now put on his clothes and depart, so she can return to her usual routine of watching TV and eating ice cream. But Johnny, a compulsive talker (and romantic), has other ideas. He is convinced that he loves Frankie, a notion that she, at first, considers to be ridiculous. She has had more disappointments than delights in life, and he is the veteran of one broken marriage already. And neither of them is in the bloom of youth. Yet out of their sometimes touching, sometimes hilarious interplay the promise of a relationship beyond a “one-night stand” does begin to emerge.

Intended for audiences 14 years old and older.
