Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival
Winner! The 8th Annual Samuel French Off Off Short Play Broadway Festival.
Susan Matthews comes to the big city to marry her hometown boyfriend Roger, and receives a rude shock: Roger is leaving to pursue a career as a rock star in Anchorage! So, Susan sets out to meet some of the city's available men. These include Fred, a programmer who speaks in Basic Boring; Jim, a maniacal corporate lawyer who's certain every single girl wants to marry him; and Neil, the "perfect man" (but, alas, married). By the time John shows up, Susan has learned all the wrong lessons from this motley collection of dreamboats--and she almost loses her chance with the one who just might be the answer to her dreams. included in the Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 8th Series.
Dreamboats was presented in the 8th Annual Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival, in May 1983.
