Award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl brings her unique mix of lyricism, sparkling humor, and fierce intelligence to her romantic comedy Stage Kiss. When estranged lovers He and She are thrown together as romantic leads in a long-forgotten 1930s melodrama, the line between off-stage and on-stage begins to blur. A "knockabout farce that channels Noel Coward and Michael Frayn" (Chicago Tribune), Stage Kiss is a thoughtful and clever examination of the difference between youthful lust and respectful love. Ruhl, one of America's most frequently produced playwrights, proves that a kiss is not just a kiss in this whirlwind romantic comedy.
"Wickedly clever. . . . Ruhl's unique, breezily elegant dialogue is fully present, as is her pleasingly loopy logic." - Variety
"A lively blend of romantic comedy and backstage farce...StageKiss reminds us of how the artifice of theatre can stir emotions not just for those who create it, but for those who attend it too."
