by Andy Rooster Bloch

A comedy about two lonely New Yorkers on a high stakes blind date. Stella, a chatty, lovable dog trainer is no stranger to the world of J-Date, a label she longs to shed. Even with her intense baggage and deep-dark secrets, she has a hopeful shot tonight with Isaac, an affable, jazz-loving, alcoholic schoolteacher with his own skeletons in tow. Adding to the tension of the night is a third character, Don, a bully, a “Force” — born from Stella’s own neurosis — out once again to destroy her last chance at love, sanity, and happiness.
