Love can make anyone feel young again, even an elderly widower. On an ordinary day in a routine
life, Ralph decides to take a different path on his daily walk. Instantly smitten by an elegant, mature
woman, Carol, he turns on the charm hoping for a second chance at love. Defying Carol's reticence,
Ralph embarks on a journey to regain the happiness that seemed all but lost.

Seeking:
Ralph Bellini (80) – Vigorous and full of life. Charming, bit of a tease, charmer, struggling with the
insecurities of aging, and his faltering health. Once a young aspiring opera singer, he gave up that
dream to support his family, he is now widowed and lives with his sister.
Carol Reynolds (70s) – Attractive, proper and very well-dressed. The focus of Ralph's attraction, and
while she may be lonely, she is reticent to engage him because of her fear, and also her complicated
situation which she keeps from Ralph.
Rose Tagliatelle (70s) - Ralph's sister, a tough cookie, she's protective of Ralph, and very worried
about his health, threatened by Carol's appearance, and does whatever she can to break them up,
even bringing to light a secret that Carol is hiding. Rose has given up on love and accepts what her life
will be. But, Rose is lonely, and wants to have a better relationship with Ralph, because she feels that
they are all the other has left
The Young Man (early 20s) – Baby-faced with a beautiful singing voice. The younger version of Ralph;
full of hope and promise; baritone, with some classical training, will sing small sections of Italian arias
throughout the show, and interact minimally, with his "older" self.
