Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Winner! 39th Annual Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
Overworked, under-qualified, and broke, Jess takes on another job to make ends meet – as a personal caretaker for a graduate student named John. John has cerebral palsy. John is beautiful. And John is here from Cambridge. That is, Massachusetts. Where he went to undergrad, just in case you were wondering. One Friday night after the timesheet has been put away, music is played, assumptions are challenged, and two lonely people learn some things about each other.

Part of the collection Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 39th Series.
Presented in the 39th Annual Samuel French Off Off-Broadway Short Play Festival, at Playwrights Horizons in August, 2014.
