Director's Statement

My co-producer and I created this show out of a need to keep creating and performing during COVID. For us as actors, as for the rest of the world, managing life and our jobs became very difficult.

The idea for this project came both: out of a need to cope with the sudden changes to daily life, and out of a spark of inspiration that came from watching our friends handling dating in the time of social distancing. Also, the shared guilty pleasure of reality-tv dating shows.

Ultimately, we wanted to create something that would give people something to laugh about.  Especially when the world around us is and feels so dire.  We wanted to share laughter with as many people as possible – from a safe social distance of course.
