"The Chronic Single's Handbook" is a 55-minute solo show about a chronically-single guy who takes a trip around the world hoping to change his luck with love.
The one-man play is sweet, innocent, occasionally naughty, slightly true, and combines the personal journey of "Eat, Pray, Love" with the naive silliness of "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."
The show is based on my novel, which was published by The Permanent Press in March 2017. The show has been featured at fringe theater festivals around the U.S., Canada, and in Edinburgh, Scotland. The "Chronic Single's Handbook" was selected by Airbnb as a "high-quality" Experience for Boston visitors.

"Sharply funny" "Some of life's tougher punchlines" "A quality solo show"
-- FringeReview (Edinburgh fringe festival)
"Compelling and amusing (in a guilty sort of way). The cohesion of the show is flawless. Ross is himself a meticulous and seasoned performer, and no moment of the show seems unpolished or misplaced."

-- Paul Kuhne, Hostelling International Boston
