Winner of an Obie Award, the New York Times Best Of 1999, and the 1999 Media Award from GLAAD, Stop Kiss tells the story of two young women in present day New York City, who humorously enter one another’s lives and find mutual affection, fears, and desires. In time, an unspoken attraction develops between the two friends and they grow to understand the meaning of courage and commitment. Their tentative first kiss leads not only to shocking violence, but also to a moving transformation.
Making choices and commitments is a scary business, ‘’Stop Kiss’’ suggests, but what is the alternative?
Stop Kiss will be directed by Matt Huff, our spring guest artistic director. Matt comes from Atlanta and has directed in such noted regional theatres as Actor’s Express and Portland Center Stage, as well as at the University of Texas-Austin.
