When guys want to meet girls: Aching Dogs production reviewed by Irish Voice

The Irish Voice — May 17, 2010

Excerpt from the Irish Voice:



After a shattering divorce, thirtysomething Joe wants to "get back out there" in the dating game. After all, he reasons, he's still young, he has his urges, and he knows there's much more to life than work and sleep - it's just that he's sorely out of practice when it comes to wooing women.

So where does an eager but timid guy turn to answer love's call? He turns to the Internet and speed dating, that's where. And let's face it, what could be timelier or more impersonal than that? But as usual with the Internet, what you see is rarely ever what you get.

In Guy Walks Into a Bar, Irish playwright Don Creedon's genuinely hilarious and caustic series of four interlinked new plays about love, lust and dating now playing at the Producer's Club in New York, the playwright casts a cold eye on the world of men (who are, we learn, prepared to do or say anything in pursuit of their goal, which is love, or failing that, another notch on their bedpost).
