Comedy. By Julie Jensen.
Cast: 1m., 3w. (may be expanded to 3m., 5w.) Our girl Wendy Burger stands on the edge of a summer that will change her life forever. It's the summer she moves out of her father's house (and into the UPS truck). The summer she starts a theatre with the guy she used to date (no one else would have them). The summer she performs her first acting role (Lisa in Hamlet—with a flickering blue light playing the lead, a la Tinkerbell). The summer when she gets tips from the actress, Floating Piñata Head. But most of all it's the summer when she meets O Vixen My Vixen (yes, that's her full name!) who is both beautiful and oh-so-deep. It's the summer that changes everything in Wendy's life. The title, Wait!, identifies that moment between the question and the answer, between the old life and the new. It's a moment of great power. No matter what happens, you will not be the same. Commissioned and premiered by the Salt Lake Acting Company. Named one of the 10 best plays of the year by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Unit set. Approximate running time: 1 hour, 50 minutes.
