Rainy Day People
Rainy Day People
Received The Mark Twain Comedy Playwriting Award
By Todd McCullough.

Cast: 5m., 7w. (With doubling, can be done by 3m., 5w. At least 1 black male, character of Brillstein can be done by man.) Rainy Day People takes a comic look at love, sex and other antidepressants. Zack Wallis has turned misery into a paycheck, writing a wildly popular newspaper column full of his cynical views on modern existence. However, on meeting Zoe Lofton, an equally depressed bookstore clerk working on a musical adaptation of Dostoyevsky's Notes From Underground, he finds himself in love—and happy—for the first time. And while finding true love might be a dream come true for most people, for Zack it means losing his inspiration to write. Torn between his relationship with Zoe, the advice of his new-age therapist, and the threats of dismissal from his editor, Zack ultimately has to decide if true happiness is profitable, preferable, or even possible. As the rain falls in the play, the main characters are interrupted and confronted by an eclectic chorus of sad and soaked New Yorkers who rant and rave on the downside of everything from relationships and single parenthood to art and amputation. Rainy Day People is a smart, hilarious play that focuses on the age-old question "What is happiness, and is it available in easy-to-swallow capsules?" Area staging with optional rain machine. Approximate Running Time: 80 minutes.
