ABOUT THE PLAY
Funny and touching, FERRIS WHEEL is the unlikely love story of two lonely people who are forced to ride together on an old country Ferris wheel. She's afraid of heights. He's afraid to give up smoking. They are both afraid of each other.
The setting is two folding chairs placed side by side or a small bench. The motion of the Ferris wheel can be created by the movement of the actors, gradually leaning forward going up and gradually leaning backwards going down. The safety bar in front of them should be mimed when necessary.
Note: The bulk of the play should run as almost two separate monologues with the characters seldom relating to one another until they have to.
JOHN and DORIE: They can be any age as long as they are close to the same age. However, the play becomes more poignant if they are a little older and rather average looking.
