The Story: A naive self-tracker prepares for love at first sight. A neurotic, a nostalgic, and a lost soul launch into a love triangle. An ex-wife confronts her depression while her ex-husband deals with his guilty conscience for having left her. A relationships comedy akin to Love Actually, The Romantics is a character-focused play that theatrically explores how these people grapple with relationships and love.
A staged reading performance of this endearing and entertaining comedy with an opportunity to provide feedback afterwards so that this homegrown play can take on the world!
