Not in the Stars
Not in the Stars
"Stuffed with inventive twists and lots of good jokes… Busfield is a perceptive, concise writer… At first, both Yvonne and Clare are defensive; then they get more defensive, argumentative and evasive. Miscommunications lead to misunderstandings, mistakes, psychologizing, secrets and lies. If that sounds like love at second or third sight, bingo." —The Columbus Dispatch

"Not in the Stars twinkles ... Undeniably entertaining." —The Sacramento Bee
By Buck Busfield.

Cast: 2m., 1w. How does one find true romance? Is it gained through patient seeking and endless rounds of dating? Or is it thrust upon us by fate…by karma…by the stars? Not in the Stars is "a tremendously appealing send-up of the way human beings stumble into attachments" (The Sacramento Bee). During the course of a blind date, Not in the Stars charts the origin of a romance from its disastrous first "hello" to its first tentative kiss. And it all takes place in the course of an evening. On a date. A blind date. The problem is Yvonne Batten is skeptical of dates. A veteran of four failed marriages, she has every right to be. And her suitor, Clare, doesn't help. Funny, frivolous and given to shading the truth, Clare embodies everything Yvonne fears most in a man. Perfectly mismatched, the blind date rushes headlong into irreversible romantic oblivion—until a secret is shared, behaviors are forgiven and the beginning of romance is found. Two int. sets. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
