Synopsis “Lifelong friendship is put to the test when two waitresses, the sexy (and easy) Regina De Marco, and frumpy (and perpetually dateless) Donna Giordano, learn that a former television star, currently performing in a local dinner theatre, is on his way over. Soon, the two best friends are quarreling and revealing past resentments as they fight over this unseen, and unattainable, Mr. Right.

Written for a Los Angeles one-act festival in 1997, ‘Girl Shoes’ received unanimously glowing reviews. Buzz Magazine gave the production four stars. The Los Angeles Times said, ‘A frolicking comedy . . . strong characterizations and reflections on friendship.’ Dramalogue said, ‘A joy to watch.” Entertainment Today said, “Mary Hanes’ ‘Girl Shoes’ is a wonderfully knowing, funny and touching examination of female friendship, and it’s a blast. • The Dogwood National One-Act Competition address is Mr. David Muschell, Contest Coordinator, Dogwood National One-Act Competition, 2485 Irwinton Road, Milledgeville, Georgia 31061, U.S.A.; there is a small submission fee.” • The U.
