About The Show

Love Quest explores the journeys of two women in the perilous world of online dating. Kate Crawford, 60, is recently divorced after a 30-year marriage. Left by her husband for a younger woman, she is dealing with issues of abandonment, ageing and the new world order of internet dating. Brook Davis, 32, single, is climbing the corporate ladder in the fashion industry with a driven, single minded focus and has just won “The Emerging Designer of the Year”. Kate and Brook meet after a bad date goes awry and become friends and allies in this strange new dating world. Each has started with different goals and they both find something they didn’t expect.

ROLES:  3 Male and 3 Female

 

CHARACTERS

 

Katherine Crawford:  Female, 55-60, divorced after a 30-year marriage and new to the dating game; we meet her depressed and lonely, but watch as she finds her strength; Krispy Kreme donuts are her drug of choice.

 

Brook Davis:  Female, 30-35, high-powered fashion designer; tough, smart, shrewd, and in desperate need of a date for the Golden Globes.

 

Megan Crawford:  Female, 25-30, daughter of Katherine; computer savvy and eager to help her mom find love again; she is supportive, sarcastic, and very protective of her mother.

 

Bové: Male, 30-40, more than Brook's assistant, he is her right-hand; his dress is exotic, his mannerisms flamboyant. Must have a believable French accent.

 

Hal Brooks:  Male, 55-65, gentleman caller; he seems kind and mostly normal, yet mysteriously can't sit through an entire date without bolting away for an "emergency."

 

Everyman:  Male, 35-50.  Plays multiple parts including terrible first dates Gordon, Justin, Eric, Michael, Jimmy and Frau Wurtz, the Ring Announcer, and a Cut man. Should have great comic timing.
