Tech #4, Waiting for The Dating Game

"Waiting for The Dating Game" is Emily Conbere's imagining of what might happen to an episode of The Dating Game if Chuck Woolery were not to show. What would happen if contestants had to invent their own questions and converse without the galvanizing presence of a host? The play pulls a full gender switcheroo, and has a lot of light fun in doing so.

The rhythm of the first half of the show, when in tech, was somewhat stutter-stepping and still in need of some touching-up. As their tech wraps the cast is off to iron out the little remaining wrinkles. This one promises to be a crowd-pleaser.
