Blind Date • A 12-minute play

by Eric Samuelsen

Hyper-vigilance. On a stakeout. Fifi and Rex seem to be just thrown together. They talk about duty. They talk about their bosses––how they seem to be blind to a lot of things. But their bosses are human. Not canine. Like their dutiful selves. Fifi and Rex go on observing what seems to be some sort of human mating ritual that involves a meal, a lot of talking, some shiny thing. Fifi remembers mating. Rex does not, really, but he begins to trust in Fifi’s instinct about it, as she was fixed after mating, not before, like Rex. But this is nothing like what Fifi remembers. Fifi is focusing on her boss’s shoes. So there is a puzzlement in the middle of their duty. But they carry on, even in a blind-date-gone-wrong.
