Alternate Proposal

    Ten-Minute Play

    Premiered January 5, 2008
    Camino Real Playhouse (San Juan Capistrano, CA)

    Celia wears a look like she's just been proposed to by Tom, because she has. She answers with questions of her own, and a mutual critique of the proposal unfolds across the restaurant table taking these two lifelong soulmates far beyond a simple yes or no.

    Available for production (1m, 1f, one set). Contact the playwright.

    The ending was the original idea, but saying anything more would give the play away. You'll just have to request a copy.
