About the show

In this solo comedy, thirty-eight year old New Yorker Rachel Yardley's ticking  biological clock propels her into doing something that goes against everything she believes in: online dating. More…

Challenged by her sister’s dare to meet 50 men in three months, Rachel rises to the occasion. While desperately speed dating at Starbucks, she questions her past choices in ex-boyfriends, abandonment issues with her father, and why the only unconditional love she has ever known is with her dog.

See it if If you want to hear what one bad date has to say her bad dates. Spoiler alert: happy ending. Highlight: upbeat hit songs on the soundtrack.

Cliched, Disappointing, Slow

See it if You are a friend of the cast/staff. Providing moral support is an honorable thing.

Indulgent, Cliched, Dated, Whitebread

Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated, Quirky, Slow

See it if You like life stories that are depressive

Disappointing, Cliched, Indulgent

See it if you want to support risk-taking by an individual and hear a heartfelt exposition of her personal story.

Don't see it if you hope to hear any insight or originality.
