§ Dramatis Personae Darrel (m), the blind date; Brenda (f), a young woman expecting her blind date to arrive; Julie (f), Brenda’s mischievous sister.

§ Synopsis “Brenda prepares for her blind date, while her sister Julie sulks about breaking up with her boyfriend. When Brenda's date arrives, Julie greets him—and then shuttles back and forth between Brenda in the bedroom and Darrell in the living room, each telling outlandish stories about the other. Eventually, each blanches at the prospect of going out with the other—and Julie steps in to become Darrell's date for the evening.

§ Comment “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 smaller cast.”

§ Themes blind date, courtship, mendacity, sister-sister relationship.
