Repertory Theatre’s fourth annual staged play-reading series “Sundays at Three”
concludes on May 5 with “Lonely I’m Not” by Paul Weitz. Directed by Travis
Nodurft, the show features CRT company members Ernie Casciato and Cyndy Smith
English along Brianna Rouse and Kory Keeney.
The Sundays at
Three performances feature new works by American
playwrights. The shows are staged, but the actors are carrying their scripts.
The plays include lively post-show discussions, refreshments, and a
behind-the-scenes backstage tour.
At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do
with their lives, Porter has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as
a corporate "ninja," and had a nervous breakdown. It's been four
years since he's had a job or a date, and he's decided to give life another
shot. “Lonely I’m Not” is a comic journey that
follows Porter as he meets an ambitious, sightless young businesswoman who is
overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.
The New York Times selected “Lonely I’m Not” as a critics pick
and described the play: "This damaged-boy-meets-defensive-girl story has
the sweet suspense, elliptical construction and off-kilter charm of an ideal
Hollywood rom-com, the kind that you hope (usually in vain) is coming to a
screen near you. It's both slight enough and serious enough to scratch an itch
without raising welts."
