Everyone who dates men has a few zany stories of the guys they’ve dated. Stories of first dates gone terribly, terribly wrong, of blind dates that were complete nightmares, or even of guys who they had great chemistry with online or in text, but not so much in real life.
I once went on a movie date, but we couldn’t agree on what one to see. We spent the afternoon arguing about it and accidentally walked the entire seawall. Needless to say, it didn’t work out.
In that vein, The Dudes of My Life tells the story of one woman’s search for the man of her dreams, who also gains the approval of her mother. This one-act play, starring Christina Andreola, is a comedy that explores one woman’s experiences in modern dating and romance with the guys you meet online or at work or in line at the grocery store.
Using both personal and borrowed experiences The Dudes of my Life is a tongue-in-cheek examination of dating in the modern world. Sources include the ubiquitous ’90s rom-com, racy text messages, and the “swipe right” culture of Tinder.
The show is the opening of SHIFT Theatre Society’s 2014-15 season and runs from August 19 to 23. Tickets are just $12, and show time is at 8 p.m. at the Shop Theatre, 125 E 2nd Ave in Vancouver. More information and tickets here.
