About this title


Ninth-grade Rudy has asked eleventh-grade Patricia out on a date, and to his amazement she has agreed. Now Rudy has to come up with the money, the poise, and the conversation to carry it off. This one-act play, by turns heartwarming and heart-wrenching, follows Rudy from his desperate search for guidance from family and friends through the hilarities of the date itself, all the way to its successful conclusion. “To present a new kind of coming-of-age story, a play is the way.”--American Bookseller


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!
