100 Lunches - A Gourmet Comedy

Jul. 29 (2015)
Successful mystery playwright Chuck Reynolds has had his plays lauded by all critics except Charity Starr. When she shows up at his home and has the unmitigated gall to ask his expert help in writing a play of her own, Chuck fiendishly insists that their teacher/pupil sessions be held over lunch with Charity footing the bill at the most expensive restaurants in New York City. Lunatic waiters provide a uniquely hilarious touch to these meetings. Love blossoms despite the scheming of Chuck's amorous neighbor. Charity's play opens on Broadway and she finds out what it's like to be a target for all her critical confreres. Non stop fun, romance, and explosive hilarity make this an ideal show for the entire family.
CHARITY STARR - 25-30; the only theatre critic who doesn't like Chuck's worksmanship.
GLINDA BELLOWS - 50s; Chuck's housekeeper, named for the Good Witch of the North.
TERRY REYNOLDS - 10-14; Chuck's son, a smart (but not smartaleck) matchmaker.
YOLANDA WEINTRAUB - 30s-40s; sexy-but-predatory neighbor lady; aggressively attractive.
WAITER - 20s-30s; a multiple role of many "brothers" in a large family of waiters.
