The Blue Slipper is pleased to present, “The Woolgatherer,” by William Mastrosimone. Starring Michelle Zizian and Rich Valiant, Rebecca Ruhd directs this poignant drama.
One evening in Philadelphia, two lonely hearts reach out to each other. Rose is a candy counter clerk who’s had a rough haul, and Cliff is a truck driver with a sour taste in his mouth. Rose is selling sweet dreams, and Cliff wants to deliver something real. The evening becomes an interview in which Rose’s sensitivity and romance are challenged by Cliff’s rough-edged wit and practicality. Their longing for love keeps pulling them together, even as it threatens to drive them right over the edge.
The Hollywood reporter says:
[Mastrosimone] has a knack for composing wildly humorous lines at the same time that he is able to penetrate people's hearts and dreams."
