§ Dramatis Personae Brad (m), 32, an accountant, very conservative and straitlaced; Jack (m), 21-40, the waiter, completely inept; Delia (f), 32, an artist, vivacious and charming, with only one apparent flaw—she is a kleptomaniac.

§ Synopsis “Brad and Delia have been set up on a blind date by a mutual friend. It seems, at first, to be a good match, but between Delia’s stealing ‘mementos" from the restaurant and Jack’s fumbling with their orders, Brad soon regards himself as the only sane person of the three.

§ Comment “One scene, simple set requiring two chairs, a table and a light fixture mounted to a wall. • ‘The First Date’ premiered at the Chapel Street Playhouse, 27 N. Chapel Street, Newark, Delaware, U.S.A., in October, 2002, in a production by the Chapel Street Players, P.O. Box 36, Newark, Delaware 19715, U.S.A., telephone 302-368-2248, e-mail avenger@UDel.Edu.
