  §  Dramatis Personae Roger (m), 25, Bob’s friend; Lori (f), Susan’s sister, a very popular girl; Bob (m), Roger’s friend; Susan (f), Roger and Bob’s friend.

  §  Synopsis “It’s Roger’s twrnty-fifth birthday, but he has not told anyone.  Instead he’s gone to work as if it’s any other day. When the others find out, he has to fight off their various attempts to make him celebrate.  Why?  He is not happy with his life, his job, and how long he has been stuck in the same routine.  What he is not counting on is the unexpected return of Lori; a very popular girl whom he once had a shot at dating. Perhaps his life would have been better if he had run off with her.  Perhaps this is his second chance. Should he take it? Bob thinks so.  Bob has his own quirky outlook on everything (as well as an uncanny knack for avoiding any real work), and he is quick to tell Roger how to lead his life. Susan does not have a lot of respect for Lori’s irresponsible ways. She is also constantly after Bob to do his job properly, but she is too nice a person to get him into trouble.  Susan likes Roger, and the two of them have an always-bizarre, fun-filled, jokingly-flirtatious relationship.  At least, Roger thinks they are joking.  But sometimes he wonders. . . . Before the shift is over, Roger must decide on what could change  the course of his entire life.

  §  Comment “What will the decision be? The comedy that proves you’re never too young for a mid-life crisis.”
