A Comedic Character Experience: The Hope and Heartache Diner

The Hope and Heartache Diner
Written by Lindsay Price

The Hope and Heartache Diner by Lindsay Price is a wonderful character piece with parts for everyone – available in full-length and one-act versions.

Diners are a special place. You can get your coffee, fall in love, and find light when the world is dark. Duke’s is a family business – four generations strong.

Felix wants one last hurrah before leaving for college. She’s doing the full run – open to close – just like her grandpa did when he was a teenager. But why? Everyone knows Felix can barely wipe tables. Why is she trying so hard to connect? And what happens when Felix’s parents announce they’re selling the diner?

The super-talented student performers at Strack Intermediate School in Klein, Texas had more hope than heartache in their production of the play and teacher, Jennifer Paske, was thrilled to share their photos and let us know all about it:

It was such a great experience for the kids. The characters were so fun to play and our UIL judge really liked it.

Great work, Strack Intermediate School!
