"Stop Kiss" is a relatively new piece by playwright, Diana Son. At the heart of this funny, touching play are two single women trying to make their way in New York. Callie is a "hip" woman who is in the "know"-- the right restaurants, the right clubs, the right streets to drive on. She knows almost everything, except what she wants.Sara has just recently come to New York and is the perfect antithesis of Callie. She is out of the loop but knows exactly what she wants. The new dynamic that Sara represents in Callie's life turns everything upside down. When Callie impulsively kisses Sara, they both make a leap of self-awareness and trust. Full of the tenderness of romance and the ugliness of violence, this contemporary comedy-drama reminds us all of the need to seize the day in the matters of love.For more ticket information, please call 503-370-6221.
