Flirting With the Deep End
Flirting With the Deep End
By Suzanne Maynard Miller.

Cast: 2m., 3w. Michael owns an independent bookstore that houses the world's worst book club. Aside from Michael himself, only two members remain: Gail, a neurotic librarian beset by relationship woes, and Diane, a shoot-from-the-hip waitress who offers no-nonsense advice to her self-absorbed friends. In an effort to put his struggling bookstore on the map, Michael has been vying for the attention of the local newspaper, and they're finally showing interest. As the featured club in a piece on the "book club boom," Michael's hoping his bookstore (and his ego) will garner a much needed boost. Seeing this as his last, best hope, Michael enlists the help of Elliott—a celebrity author in town to promote his latest best-seller—to ensure the evening's success. Unfortunately, Elliott proves a disastrous choice. Unbeknownst to Michael, aside from being Diane's estranged brother, Elliott has just broken Gail's heart and has his sites set on Michael's wife, Christine. Ignoring all red flags, Michael forges ahead—but his carefully choreographed evening of glory turns into a chaotic comedy of errors. This taut comedy about friendship, loyalty, and self-doubt will have you laughing even as you recognize some of the neuroses as your own! 1 hour, 40 minutes. Area staging.
