    Hello all, wondering if anyone has any good suggestions for this. Am taking part in a showcase and need to find a good contemporary light-hearted/comic duologue for a pair of women in their 20's and seem to have hit a blank on this one. Every piece I think of involves one women being slightly older or isn't a modern naturalistic piece..oh yeah your basic kitchen sink drama rather than anything non-naturalistic. Not that it can't be expressionistic, actually just any ideas would be good! x

    There's a nice duologue for 2 women in "No-one See The Video" by Martin Crimp. It's about a market research survey. Quite funny.

    I great one I think is in The Importance of Being Ernest between Gwendoline & Cecily. Not sure if that's modern enough for you though.....

    Low Level Panic by Claire McIntyre is good, but might be a bit 'done' , not sure.

    Sarah Daniels is a gd writer for female stuff, strong and opinionated. I had 2 students do a duologue from Ripen Our Darkness which was very contemporary (about one of them 'coming out' to her mother)and issues on life in general. Age is Uni students as well so suits... Strong character work available there.

    Wendy Wasserstein wrote "The Heidi Chronicles" and thats got some good stuff.,

    Theres also "The Sisters Rosensweig". Also look at Neil Simon, he has somne wonderful comedy.

    Yes, all Jewish writers..some of the best comedy in the world, to be honest!!!
