Swimming the River
It's the usual story: boy meets girl, they fall in love, boy asks girl to marry him, boy finds out girl is a 12-fingered alien in disguise as an ordinary human woman.
Well, perhaps not the usual story.
Kevin picked the worst possible day to propose: the day that his girlfriend's five year mission to Earth comes to a climax. The day that her superior, an ambassador, arrives to open diplomatic relations with Earth. And Kevin has to decide how far his love will take him.
Swimming the River was workshopped in the Foothill College playwriting class, and received a staged reading at Foothill College in June, 2006.
