By Nick Payne
June 29 – July 30, 2016

One relationship. Infinite possibilities.
In the beginning Marianne and Roland meet at a party. They go for a drink, or perhaps they don’t. They fall madly in love and start dating, but eventually they break up. After a chance encounter in a supermarket they get back together, or maybe they run into each other and Marianne reveals that she’s now engaged to someone else and that’s that. Or perhaps Roland is engaged. Maybe they get married, or maybe their time together will be tragically short.

Stop Kiss

By Diana Son
June 8 – June 12, 2016

Stop Kiss uniquely explores the implications of provocation, intolerance, and the oppression of identity through the developing relationship between Sara and Callie, two women in their mid-20’s living in New York City. Both women struggle with hesitation towards intimacy and inhibition, yet each pushes the other to expand upon their perception of reality in Diana Son’s sobering play. This influential story reflects the complex relationship dynamics between two diverse women, while maintaining a refreshingly vulnerable and raw style of dialogue. Son effortlessly explores authenticity, love through change, and entitlement in this 21st century romance, and more than anything, she speaks truth to power.
