By Diana Son
A funny, poignant and evocative play that explores our assumptions about love and reminds us what a profound privilege and transforming event it can be when we choose, and are chosen, to care for one another.
The kiss of the title comes as a cataclysmic leap of self-awareness, trust and caring. But because that kiss, unlike the happy-ending kiss in an old-fashioned romantic movie, is between two women that the play is about the ugliness of violence as well as the tenderness of a first kiss. After a brief burst of happiness, this kiss turns abruptly into a nightmare situation that gives Ms. Son's extremely funny and poignant chronicle a painful seriousness. Directed by Carol Roscoe, with Rebecca Olson, Melissa Brown, Ray Tagavilla,Trick Danneker, J.P. Giuliotti, Wendy Woolery and Serin Ngai.
Winner of the GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Media Award (Outstanding New York production). Berilla Kerr Award (playwriting) for Diana Son.
Stop Kiss is proud to be sponsored in part by a generous donation by the Pride Foundation.
