§ Dramatis Personae Joe (m), the blind date; Belinda (f), a young woman expecting her blind date to arrive.

§ Synopsis “Belinda dreads her blind date with Joe, anticipating an awkward, predictable evening of the same old thing—dinner and a movie. She sets out to change all that. When Joe arrives, she masquerades as her phantom twin sister Melinda, who proceeds to talk Joe into changing his plans for the evening into something Belinda will find a lot more interesting, and Joe will find a lot more expensive.

§ Comment “This requires a strong female. • Minimal set requirements: a sofa, some chairs, a simple divider between bedroom and living room. • Note: This is similar to another play by the same author, “Belinda’s Blind Date,” which has a larger cast.”

§ Themes blind date, courtship, mendacity.
