Unlucky in love twenty somethings conclude the solution to their relationship problems is to stay single, as they mingle through the bars of Wrigleyville. The Guide to Being Single, a new book from an anonymous author, gives you rules for screwing without getting screwed: You never call or text. You always go to their place. And most importantly, you never break the rules. But what if the fun of rules is breaking them?
Cast includes: Remy Zaken (BWAY: Spring Awakening original cast), Eric LaJuan Summers (BWAY: Motown the Musical, Elf the Musical, Aida), David Perlman (BWAY: Baby It's You!), Lana Neuman, Melanie Brook, Tim Murray, and Ellen Zolezzi (OFF BWAY: Cagney).
