Harry and Patrick are best friends. Patrick needs somewhere to stay for a few weeks, so he moves in with Harry. Harry works at the local Hospital as the north barrier gate operator and he has recently drummed up the courage to ask the south barrier gate operator, Millie Bell, out on a date. She’s expected to arrive at Harry’s apartment any minute. Millie’s cousin Chelsea is visiting from out-of-town and Millie does not want to leave Chelsea alone at home. Suddenly the couples find themselves on a double-date. Patrick worries that the evening will unfold like one of “Those Movies” and Chelsea is going to fall head over heels for him. Is Patrick right? Will the evening unfold like one of “Those Movies?” A heartwarming tale about how love can surprise you and be found in unexpected places…perhaps not always in the romantic sense.

The following roles are available:

PATRICK – age 35 and up
Dry, witty, irascible. Patrick thinks he’s got his life figured out, but deep down he knows he doesn’t.

HARRY – age 35 and up
Energetic, friendly, hopeful, Harry is working hard to find his life. He is a caring friend, but has a keen eye for Patrick’s flaws. Loves Millie.

MILLIE – age 35 and up
Cheerful, pragmatic, straightforward. Not afraid to speak her mind. Loves Harry.
