Last Chance • a one-act play

by Eric Samuelsen

Two people, in the masquerade of longing and loving, have pretended themselves out of a life of anything but ordinary. Each wants something extraordinary, but are unsure about how to attain it. Their third date — that is a magical number for some reason known only to her — proves the tipping point in their relationship. Wry, fragile, filled with doubt and certainty in all the wrong intents, Deirdre and Douglas find…more… in their “Last Chance.” PREMIERE PLAY FILE

NOTE: Playing the ages of these characters as slightly older would open up the play to those who produce Senior Theatre.
