World Premiere


MAY 12 - JUNE 5, 2011

by Philip Kan Gotanda
directed by Rick Lombardo

Featuring actress Linda Park from the hit shows Star Trek: Enterprise
and Starz's Crash.

The age-old tradition of matchmaking takes a contemporary twist when wealthy businessman Jack Heller has a pre-arranged meeting with sharp and accomplished Scarlett Mori-Yang. Sparks aren't the only things flying when these two driven individuals with intractable egos try to one-up each other on what could scarcely be called a "first date." With single-minded practicality and a pre-nuptial that looks more like articles of incorporation, it isn't long before dysfunctional chaos breaks out. Is there room for love when there's no shortage of money or power?
Here's a video with an interview with Philip Kan Gotanda talking about where he got the idea for the play. And here's a San Jose Mercury News article on hometown actress Linda Park: Linda Park of 'Star Trek: Enterprise' finally gets her shot at San Jose Rep.
