Jordan Berman would love to be in love, but that’s easier said than done. So until he meets Mr. Right, he wards off lonely nights with his trio of close girlfriends. But as singles’ nights turn into bachelorette parties, Jordan discovers that the only thing harder than finding love is supporting the loved ones around you when they do.

Please prepare a one minute monologue. Actors will also be given sides from the script to be read along with others.
Jordan Berman: Male. Stage age range: late 20s. Jordan is a late 20-something gay, single man looking for love. New Yorker. He’s a romantic at heart yet has a healthy, defined sense of irony. Keenly intelligent and neurotic, he has a penchant for over-examining and over-analyzing every romantic encounter with razor-sharp precision. Existentially aware, sensitive, and very, very funny, he’s every girl’s best friend. Actor must have ease and facility with language, strong comic skills, and access to truthful emotional life.
Laura: Female. Stage age range: late 20s. New Yorker. Jordan’s best friend. In her friend circle, she’s the “straight man” of the group. She’s grounded, an emotional anchor to all, a really, really good friend. Ambitious, intelligent, funny, she cares deeply about the people she loves. She’s not without her own existential anxieties, and when she meets Tony, she finally feels like she’s met someone and can finally reciprocate the care she has always demonstrated to others.
Vanessa: Female. Stage age range: late 20s. Vanessa is a stylish, intelligent New Yorker with a finely-honed dry sense of humor. A bit of “Daria” type. When we first meet her, she is battling depression mainly because she has given up on love. Meeting Roger transforms her, and she gives over to a newfound optimism.
Kiki: Female. Stage age range: late 20s. Jewish. Kiki is a brashly hilarious, speaks-her-mind, stylish, life-of-the-party kind-of-woman. She loves being a New York City girl. She’s always 150% herself. Actor must have strong comedic chops but also be able to ground herself in the emotional truth of the given circumstances.
Helene Berman: Female. Jordan’s grandmother. Stage age range: 60s-80s. Lives on Long Island. A force of nature even as her memory recedes. Loves Jordan fiercely and provides an emotional anchor for him. Even though she is older, in her mind’s eye she still sees herself as a young woman with a vital life force.
Will/Conrad/Tony: Male. Stage age range: late 20s. Will: Jordan's very attractive co-worker. Can seem a bit aloof but then can sparkle with unexpected warmth. Conrad: Kiki's significant other. A bit of an oaf, a bit dull, lacks a real sense of humor, is crazy about Kiki. Tony: Laura's significant other. Projects instant warmth. A really good guy.
