FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Rudy anxiously prepares for and then goes out on a first date with an attractive girl who is older than he is. This one-act play includes a glossary of Spanish phrases.
What a treat: an honest-to-goodness play! Budding actors and drama coaches will enjoy this lighthearted story about the awkwardness and excitement of young love in a Mexican American community. Perhaps the word "enjoy" is an understatement ... I do believe that young actors will have a hard time not laughing along with the audience once the curtain goes up. Gary Soto, author and poet extraordinaire, breaks a leg with this fast-paced, delightful look at dating from both the male and female perspectives. The transcendent theme and its helpful glossary of Spanish words and phrases will give this play broad appeal. Bravo!
