MATES AT LAST is the final play of my MATES TRILOGY. Each play stands alone – but, collectively, they follow the two main characters' lives for six consecutive hours – from "seven past seven" until "seven past one" of a very fateful day. The three plays explore the meaning of friendship, courage and success. The other plays are MATES (winner of the Wykeham Rise nationwide playwrighting contest and produced off-off-Broadway at Lolly's Folly in 1973; and again at the Melfi Repertory in Binghamton, NY, in 1993); and MATES IN PARADISE (produced at the Melfi Repertory in Binghamton, NY, in 1993; and then produced, twice, at the 450-seat Orpheum Repertory Company in Foxborough, MA, in 1995). MATES AT LAST was produced at the Melfi in September of 1995. Synopsis: MATES AT LAST is a comedy about how two men discover the true meaning of success. The play begins with Whittler and Evans packing their bags. They are about to go out into the real world. But – two new female patients arrive to occupy the room. The men linger to "show them the ropes" – and because they find themselves attracted to the women. The action of the play revolves around success. Whittler relates how he's been miserable at love. Evans adds two stories of incredible failure – at operating a lemonade stand and at volunteering at an orphanage. The future looks bleak. But the men begin to rally. And the women begin to see something of value in them. Whittler tells of how he learned to make coffee – at his father's deathbed. And suddenly – they learn that success isn't measured "in stacks of money" but, rather, "in heartbeats." The men decided to return in two weeks – to "update" the women about their adventures on the outside. And, perhaps, to pursue the beginning of a relationship. And – at long, long last – Whittler and Evans set out on the greatest adventure of all: life.

About the Author:

Bernard Mendillo writes plays (as well as novels, memoirs and newspaper columns). Mendillo has had 18 productions of 11 full-length plays—two of them off-off-Broadway; and two others have received off-off-Broadway staged readings. He’s been produced regionally in Massachusetts, upstate New York and Los Angeles. His new play—The Nickel Jar—is a serious comedy about a man desperately trying to save his marriage and his family. He’s written two dramas based on classic works: A House that God Hates—a modern version of Aeschylus’ Agamemnon; and Agnes in Camelot—a modern retelling of the Arthurian legend. His wildly dark comedy Mates won the Wykeham Rise National Playwrighting Contest and was produced off-off-Broadway. Eventually, this led to the Mates Trilogy—with all three plays being presented at the Little Theater in Binghamton, NY. The second play of the trilogy, Mates in Paradise, was also produced at the Orpheum Repertory, in Foxboro, Massachusetts. Mendillo’s comedy of his generation, The Last Baby Boomer, received a staged reading by the New England Repertory Company, as part of its Festival of New Plays; it was produced off-off-Broadway at the Impact Theater; and it received an off-off-Broadway reading at New Perspectives. Mendillo was playwright-in-residence for the Orpheum Repertory Company in Massachusetts. He was a founding board member of the New England Repertory Company and was its playwright-in-residence. Mendillo has independently published two novels: Dancing Naked with the Devil and Marvin Piersoll and three memoirs: Football, Bella in America and Nuns! His novel Marvin Piersoll won the fiction category in the 2011 New York Book Festival Mendillo also has extensive journalism experience; he’s written more than 600 works of short fiction and feature articles and humor columns for the Providence Journal, Canton Journal, and Warwick Beacon. Mendillo grew up in Rhode Island; he studied writing at Brown University—where he earned a B.A. in English and an M.A. in Creative Writing/Playwrighting. Mendillo lives in Canton, Massachusetts.
