Comedy / Character: 3m, 1w / Unit Set Phil, an average nice guy, is madly in love with the beautiful Sophia.

The only problem is that she's unaware of his existence.

He tries to introduce himself but she looks right through him.

When Phil discovers Sophia has a glass eye, he thinks that might be the problem, but soon realizes that she really can't see him.

Perhaps he is caught in a philosophical hyperspace or dualistic reality or perhaps beautiful women are just unaware of nice guys.

Armed only with a B.A. in philosophy, Phil sets out to prove his existence and win Sophia's heart.

This fast moving farce is the winner of the HotCity Theatre's GreenHouse New Play Festival.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch called Cockeyed a clever romantic comedy, Talkin' Broadway called it "hilarious," while Playback Magazine said that it was "fresh and invigorating."

Winner of the HotCity Theatre GreenHouse New Play Festival "Rocking with laughter...hilarious...polished and engaging work draws heavily on the age-old conventions of farce: improbable situations, exaggerated characters, amazing coincidences, absurd misunderstandings, people hiding in closets and barely missing each other as they run in and out of doors...full of comic momentum as Cockeyed hurtles toward its conclusion."

- Talkin' Broadway
