About the Play:

Seven One-Act Plays is a collection of seven one-act plays by Wendy Wasserstein. These plays may be performed separately or as an evening of entertainment. Boy Meets Girl is an ideal choice for high school drama contests and one-act festivals.

In Bette And Me, the author and the legendary Bette Midler get their hair done, try on makeup, and row a boat on the Hudson River. They finally end up at Radio City Music Hall, where Wendy rises from the orchestra pit on a half-shell with a blonde wig and six-foot eyelashes. (Cast:2 women)

Boy Meets Girl brings together Dan and Molly, two successful, thirty-something New Yorkers afraid of making a commitment. With the help of their psychiatrists, they finally find the courage to tie the knot under the altar before Her Majesty, the Queen. (Cast: 1 woman, 1 man)

In the course of a single Workout, an exercise instructor writes on a novel, opens a chain of departments stores, learns to unravel the double helix, and announces her husband's candidacy for governor. (Cast:1 woman)

Tender Offer focuses on a distant father and his nine-year-old daughter. When he arrives late to pick her up from dance class, they discuss their lack of communication and why he missed her dance recital. (Cast:1 woman, 1 man)

In Waiting For Philip Glass, a socialite throws a benefit at her posh East Hampton estate for the composer, Philip Glass. When the guest of honor fails to show up on time, the other guests are forced to mingle among themselves and examine their own lives. (Cast: 3 women, 4 men)

Medea and her chorus of three women try to figure out if it's appropriate to kill your children just to punish your husband. Jason shows up, so does a messenger with news of Lady Teazle, and a Deus ex Machina comes down from the sky and tries to cheer everybody up. (Written with Christopher Durang.) (Cast:4 women, 2 men)

The Man In A Case. Inspired by "The Man in a Case" by Anton Chekhov. (Cast:1 woman, 1 man)

About the Playwright:

Wendy Wasserstein (1950-2006) was an American playwright, novelist, and an Andrew Dickson White Professor-at-Large at Cornell University. She received the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1989 for her play, The Heidi Chronicles, often touted as a precursor to the HBO television series, Sex and the City. Over the course of her career, spanning four decades, she wrote eleven plays and is one of those rare playwrights whose work is performed regularly in schools and community theater as well as commercial venues. She was admired both for the warmth and the satirical cool of her writing; each of her plays and books captures an essence of the time, makes us laugh, and leaves us wiser.
