Finalist: Theatre Oxford 10-Minute Play Contest
When a blind date goes from really bad to I-want-to-crawl-under-the-table-and-die, you get a ten-minute comedy that tweaks our understanding of prejudice toward the physically challenged but ends on a note of hope.
A woman arranges a blind date through the internet. When her date meets her at the restaurant, she discovers he's blind (something he told her by e-mail on the day her e-mail was down).
The audience is allowed to believe her discomfort is due to the discovery of his handicap, but after he leaves, we discover the truth: she tells the server she also wants to leave, and he returns with her wheelchair.
Set / Black Box:
Restaurant table, two chairs, wheelchair.
Cast of 3
Edie or Eddie (Server)
