Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival
Winner! The 2006 of Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival.
Carrie, an intelligent young professional in her 20s, and her sister Julie, a party-girl with a hangover, board a train bound for a cousin's wedding with Carrie's charismatic boyfriend of over two years, Eric. The train has just left the station when their cousin's friend from college, an attractive young man named Owen, introduces himself and, at Julie's coy insistence, joins the group. Good-natured flirtations and easy-going conversation about marriage, love and relationships turn more personal and increasingly more intense as Carrie and Eric discover that each has a very different concept of commitment... and Julie and Owen discover they both enjoy Italian food. By the trip's end, one romance has ended and another has begun in this very funny and deeply touching story about romantic expectations among members of a generation all too familiar with the emotional costs of living with divorce. Published in Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 31st Series.
