The History of Dating by Brian D. Taylor
Forest City Middle School Spring Play
Who knew that ancient pickup lines were as cheesy as today’s?! This zany romp through history is a fun, fast-paced look at the woes and wonders of dating through the ages. Professor Curio — with the help of his spirited partner, Professor Amoré — leads the audience on a chronological journey through time from early nomads and cavemen and women all the way to computer dating in the twenty-first century! With stops at ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian civilizations, then hitting Medieval and Colonial times, the scholarly hosts lead the audience through more modern decades like the Roaring 20s and the Nifty 50s. Full of fun scenes, crazy characters, sight gags, and physical comedy, you’ll especially love the breakup via 80s mixtape and the grand finale speed-dating-themed recap!
