Nun Too Soon - Pray You Don't Miss This One!

NUN TOO SOON
Two uncommon women meet and discover what they have in common.

Film-makers with access to a city and a taxicab (or an Uber) should check out this smart, rewarding, three-handed character piece from David Lambertson.

Kimberly and Theresa, two strangers from two very different backgrounds, share a ride from New Jersey to the same Manhattan hotel.

On the way they overcome their prejudices -- and a barrage of wisecracks from their New York cabbie -- and learn more than they ever suspected about how the other half lives and loves.

Kimberly is all expensive curves, stiletto heels and mouthwash --

KIMBERLY
I’m a hooker.

THERESA
Oh, my.

KIMBERLY
Really? You couldn't tell?

THERESA
No, I wouldn’t have guessed that --

MAX THE DRIVER
(proudly)
I got it right off.

Meanwhile Theresa, in a modest grey jacket and skirt, with no jewelry or makeup, turns out to be more worldly than she might seem.

As she says, "I'm a nun. Not a saint."

Toward the end of the story, as the two women bond and the pieces fall into place, we suddenly see the big picture. Moments later, the characters themselves have the same realization, and there's a delicious sense of anticipation as we wonder how Kimberly and Theresa are going to deal with their embarrassing discovery...

They rise to the challenge splendidly, and when at last we leave them, our two ladies are on the cusp of launching themselves into an evening that neither of them will ever forget.

And remember: female protagonists are hot right now. If you're looking for material that would make a splash with festival audiences, Nun Too Soon might be just the ticket!

OK, lemme see... I've been writing for quite a few years now, mostly features, but also three TV pilots. Plus, inevitably, a ragbag of webisodes, shorts and skits, some of which are still out there on the interwebs -- and some of which are uploaded here for your perusal. I was also hired to write three stage musicals that successfully went into production. One of the features I'm uploading made the quarter-finals in last year's PAGE and the other made the top 15% of the Nicholl. So I figure...Read more

About The Writer

Real name: 

Hmmm - how does one craft a writing biography for one that has not spent a life writing? I'll give it a shot. I knew I wanted to be a writer when I was eighteen. I started writing when I was 56. In the years between I got married, had children, got divorced, got married again, had grandchildren and spent more than thirty years as a Government bureaucrat. Exciting - I know. There is good news and bad news in that. The bad news of course is that I spent my life working at a career other than...Read more
