We meet Jill (Colleen Somerville Leeman) on a rough morning after a New Year's Eve wedding at which she was a bridesmaid, judging by the hideous dress she is wearing. She's single, but decides to try online dating to break her relationship slump. She is encouraged by her friends Maya (Stephanie Bertumen), a new-agey lesbian in a long-term relationship and Hayley (Katharine Strom), who seems to be expert in one-night-stands. Soon Jill's mother (Debbie Swanson), an extremely busy online dater, is also urging her to take the plunge.

Will Jill meet her match? Well, it's a musical, so...
Shannon McDonald and Brittany Shrimpton have written a script full of the foibles of modern dating, and Rosie Sauvageau's music and lyrics cleverly expand on the script's ideas. The show is fun, if a bit on the light side, and it will be interesting to see what this team takes on next.
