An obsessive little comedy about love, friendship and other role-playing games
Written by David Templeton
Directed by Carl Jordan
David (Jeffrey Weissman) still remembers the day he fell in love, at first sight, with a girl named Pinky. Pinky (Melissa Claire) has never forgotten the day her best friend David wrecked it all when he told her he loved her. He was sixteen and she was fifteen. And that was a long time ago.
In this intricately structured tour-de-force of two actors, playwright David Templeton tells two stories at the same time, as a nerdy, dungeons and dragons-playing teenager attempts to sweep the girl of his dreams off her feet, while she stays firm in her resolve to wait for P.C. (Prince Charming).
David's version of the story involves goblins, swordfights, treasure hunts, buried treasure, and one not-so-secret kidnapping.
Pinky's version, anchored in a bit of worldly advice from her Aunt Emily (:never settle for second best"), is the same - swordfights, treasure, treasure hunts, and kidnapping, only different.
Critics have called it "sweet," "hilarious," "outrageous" and "deeply affecting."
"it's the 'Godfather' f nerdy teenage love stories."
