Baker's High School Contest

Winner! 2002 Baker's Plays High School Playwrighting Contest
Winner! Best Original Production at the 1999 Northern Virginia Theatre Alliance One-Act Play Festival
Laura Robinson, a woman in her mid-twenties, must trust her heart to make the right decision - take a chance on Joel, a charming man she meets in a French restaurant on Valentine's Day, or wait for James, her insensitive boyfriend who just happens to be over an hour late for their date. Joel and Laura's budding relationship is helped along by Laura's inquisitive friend Patty, a matchmaking maitre d', and a bumbling waiter. Laura finally realizes that sometimes you have to do something crazy and impetuous in your quest to find happiness.
Waiting for James was first produced on July 17, 1999 by Pied Piper Theatre for the annual NVTA One-Act Play Festival in Reston, Virginia and was directed by Ellen Young.
