About the Play:

Bad Dates is a full-length comedy by Theresa Rebeck. A plucky New Yorker (by way of Texas), who, after spending years as a divorced mom and restaurateur, resolves to re-enter the world of dating, only to end up in hot water with the law and the Romanian mob.

Bad Dates chronicles one woman's journey of self-discovery involving the Romanian mob, a Buddhist rainstorm, a teenage daughter, shoes, and a few very bad dates. "And then I realize, in this sort of strange, hallucinatory moment, that the bug guy is looking kind of good, and the things he's saying about bugs are really kind of fascinating and it is then that I realized that maybe it has been too long since I've been on a date." – So confesses a single mother and self-described restaurant idiot-savant in this thoroughly charming and slyly sweet one-woman play by the author of The Butterfly Collection and Spike Heels. The story of Haley, a ditsy Texas waitress with 600 pairs of shoes who moves to Manhattan, goes on a string of increasingly unsatisfactory dates, falls in with a bunch of Romanian gangsters and finds love without doing hard time. A hilarious one-woman show that answers the age-old question "Do men and women really need each other?" with a resounding, "Yes."

Bad Dates was originally produced in 2003 by Off Broadway's Playwrights Horizons. The show enjoyed an extended run and has since become a regional-theatre staple.
