THE TOLUCAN TIMES REVIEW FOR THE READING OF AFTER LIFE DATING SERVICE
AFTER LIFE DATING SERVICE
Matches made in heaven in ‘After Life Dating Service’
Review by Bonnie Priever (Tolucan Times, Burbank)
A not so secret “guilty pleasure” of mine is visiting a psychic yearly on my birthday, in hopes of blessings from relatives now on “the other side.” Marguerite Fair-Kosciewicz takes this premise to the extreme with her new play After Life Dating Service, of which I saw a staged reading at SpiritWorks Center for Spiritual Living in Burbank.
This play has quite a clever premise: one will find his or her soulmate, if not in this lifetime, then perhaps in the world to come. Our society is unfortunately filled with so many trying to find the “right” one, the proverbial “match made in heaven,” yet all too often settling in unhappy relationships and marriages. The play gingerly touches on the once taboo subject matter of domestic abuse and financial blackmail.
Robin (Audrey Mitchell), when losing her job, comes up with an entrepreneurial idea of starting a most unique dating service, literally and desperately seeking angelic soulmates for her clients, because perhaps the grass is greener on “the other side. Such is the plot (no pun intended) written and directed by Marguerite Fair-Kosciewicz.
With an ensemble woven together as if they’ve been friends for eternity, the plot thickens, bringing disorder and detective/crime scene story intrigue, filled with kidnapping, a hostage and the griping of one’s seat suspense.
The play is a witty, insightful reenactment of Marguerite Fair’s amusing presumption that “After life the comedy and drama really begins,” just as the song from A Chorus Line: “Goodbye 12, hello 13 and now life really begins.” Actually though, to quote John Lennon, “Life (and death) happens when you’re making other plans.”
After Life Dating Service brings new hope and promise to the potential of reinvented or reincarnated love and romance.
