After their breakup, Rob and Nancy run into each other at an odd hour in their favorite bar. Since each is a buzzkill for the other now, they negotiate hanging out there on alternate evenings. But then, old feelings start asserting themselves…
Meet your Playwright:
Five of Judy Klass‘ full-length plays have been produced. One, Cell, was nominated for an Edgar and is published by Samuel French. Thirty of her one-act plays have been produced, all over the US, and a few have gone up in England and Ireland. Three are published as stand-alone scripts by Brooklyn Publishers. Others are in anthologies like The Best Ten-Minute Plays of 2012 and The Art of the One-Act. Judy co-wrote the Showtime cable film In the Time of the Butterflies, based on the novel by Julia Alvarez. Judy is also a songwriter; originally from NYC, she now lives in Nashville, TN.
Meet your Director:
