"A Season for Vivaldi" is a 3-character romantic comedy.
STEPHANIE - mid twenties. An actress who was popular in southern regional theater, now striving to succeed in New York City. Dark hair, wears small, serious-looking glasses; nice figure but with feminine attributes deliberately understated; intelligent and well-spoken.
LAURENCE - early thirties. Upper-class British, bookish, reticent, wears thick glasses - typical dweeb type. Now living in New York City, writes occasional critiques of books, teaches English.
PETE - early twenties. Unemployed, living on family resources. A proto-literate athletic type - occasionally doing little strong-man and loosening-up exercise movements - he now has decided to become a poet.
"Stephanie, a pretty, man-hating (for which she has a good reason) actress is at a party in the New York City apartment of Laurence - a young British literary critic. She becomes very distressed at finding herself more and more attracted to him. She leaves the party and returns to her own apartment. Later, she returns to Laurence's apartment as the party is breaking up, but she is now a "dumb" blonde disguised in a provocative country-girl outfit with an enticing decollete she had worn in an Off-Broadway play. She will prove to herself that Laurence is no different from other men. Or such is her intention..."
