Price, Lindsay (Canadian playwright, 1969-____), “The Happy Positive Rejects Club,”

a 60-minute comedy set in seven houses, summer, 1994,

1f (7 m/f roles),

© 1994 by Lindsay Price, scripts and rights available www.theatrefolk.com. Cited to present author by Lindsay Price via e-mail February 27, 1996; Price says,

  § Dramatis Personae _____ (f), _____.

  § Synopsis “Seven friends in their thirties are tired of the perils of the dating scene. They form a club to help each other and confirm that they are still good people even though they are not married with 2.2 kids. They devise rules, a motto, even a song; but as the summer ends, so does the club.

  § Comment “This play toured Canadian Fringe Festivals during summer, 1994. A garbage pail and a chair served as sets. Small changes such as a hat or a hair band defined characters. The play moves fast from one character to another, and it works best if the places and the people come from the imagination rather than the set.”

  § Themes club, dating, friendship, marriage, motto, rules, self-esteem, song, summer, support, thirties.
