Pinky
Young love can be brutal. When a sweetly romantic teenager named Pinky appears at the local bowling alley, nerdy high-schooler David is instantly smitten. After joining David's eccentric circle of brainy, oddball friends (including Troy, who rarely says anything that J.R.R. Tolkein didn't say first), Pinky reveals her life-long quest to find P.C., her nickname for Prince Charming. Determined to be the one who sweeps Pinky off her feet, David launches an outrageous scheme to prove he's the real P.C., a plan involving treasure hunts, kidnapping, and a battle against the forces of evil. Of course, every love story has two sides. Performed as a pair of simultaneous one-person-shows, the grown-up David (David Templeton) and Pinky (Liz Jahren'Always Patsy Cline,' 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf') take turns telling their version of what happened, all those years ago. 'Pinky' was written by journalist/playwright David Templeton ('Wretch Like Me') and is directed by Sheri Lee Miller ('Death of a Salesman', 'Tartuffe' 'Crimes of the Heart').

Though inspired by actual events, 'Pinky' is essentially fictional, an imaginative romp through the playwright's memories of a pivotal friendship from his youth. Unconventional in structure, the play swings back and forth in time, as the grown-up David and Pinky frequently morph into their younger selves and those of their nerd-core companions. When the two separate sets of memories begin to fuse together into one outrageous story, this offbeat, original, and thoroughly, um, charming tale becomes a wildly funny romp through the minefields of teenage love and friendship, proving that, though not every fairytale has a happy ending, with a little creative ingenuity (and a well-timed sword fight), anything is possible, and that true love, as Pinky's Aunt Emily often said, is always worth waiting for.

In a North Bay first, the process of developing this piece from page to stage is being chronicled in an entertaining blog offering insight, background, and regular reports from the rehearsal room. The blog is already drawing regular viewers at www.pinkytheplay.com.
