The play by the American playwright Diana Son was produced off-Broadway in 1998 at The Public Theater in New York City and extended three times. One of the stars was Sandra Oh of the TV show “Grey’s Anatomy.”
After Callie meets Sara, the two slowly fall in love. Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that puts one of the women in a coma and transforms their lives in ways they could never anticipate. Throughout “Stop Kiss,” relationships are explored, formed and ended. Scenes alternate between the timeline leading up to the kiss and the aftermath.
“’Stop Kiss’ isn’t a play about homophobia or about gay rights, though it certainly may make you think about those topics,” said director Jocelyn Hall. “This is a play about love and how two people, who just happen to be women, manage to find it with each other as well as with themselves.”
The Black Box Theatre is located in the Theatre Arts Building at 141 Memorial Parkway.
Admission is $10. For more information, call 805-493-3415.
