Men Without Dates

Men Without Dates by Jane Willis

Directed by Eddy Salazar

Men Without Dates is a One Act play, starring Louie Iaccarino, Owen Conway, and Vincent Nesci. It’s directed by Stella Adler Alumnus Eddy Salazar!

The place is a seedy country-western bar in lower Manhattan where two young firemen, Sal and Murph, are carousing. They are long-time friends who find themselves at a point of crisis: Murph is about to enter a shotgun marriage and resign from the Fire Department; and Sal, who once saved his buddy’s life in the line of duty, is trying to do so again.

But Sal, an insatiable womanizer who is as baffled by his conquests as he is drawn to them, is the eternal adolescent and hardly the one to persuade Murph to forego his decision to “do the right thing” and settle down to a safer, if drabber, line of work.

Their debate is complicated by the intrusion of the bartender, an arrogant and paranoid bully who would just as soon fight with his customers as serve them and whose clash with Sal helps instigate the uneasy, but infinitely touching truce that brings the action to its poignant close.
