It’s a classic set up: two strangers on a park bench. But in Jack Levine’s world, it’s never “just” as simple as two people meeting. The quirky humor that unfolds as they each reveal something about themselves makes us all feel a little less bizarre. It’s a heart-warming sweet play that never dips into saccharine. This would be a lovely addition to a Valentine’s Day short play festival! ”-Emily McClain

 

 

Human nature looks for something in common when we meet someone: a similar upbringing, the same hometown, mutual interests; something to connect and validate our own lives and affirm that we’re not alone. In this sweet little two-hander, Jack Levine finds common ground between two seemingly very different people and make a tenuous connection — as flimsy as a soap bubble — but even bubbles can form a foundation. ” – Philip  Middleton Williams

 

 

What a sweet, silly play! Two people who march to the beat of a different drum happen to sit on the same bench at lunchtime and realize they just might hear the same beat. There’s a lot here for actors to work with, and the simple location (park bench) makes it easy to stage. This would be a really cute one to see live! ” – Lisa Dellagiarino
