Synopsis

A man has the worst audition for the best role ever.

Phil is an actor but he has not gone to an audition since his precious dog died. He has come along to audition for a very random, badly devised play titled 'The Seven Men of Hanukkah'. He is about to pull out of the audition when Stephanie, the 'director', reveals that it's not a real audition. Instead, she wanted to get to know Phil before asking him out on a date, and devised the audition as a way of getting him out. Stephanie realizes that Phil is just as quirky as she is, but can love blossom after a false start?

This is a ten minute play.
