    Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. In Stage Kiss, two squabbling long-lost loves are cast as long-lost lovers, and quickly lose touch with reality in this romantic and revealing play-within-a- play. Playwright Sarah Ruhl and Director Courtney O’Connor (Red Hot Patriot, Buyer & Cellar) take us on-stage, back-stage, and right out the stage door in this charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss and when actors share a real one.  

    "A brilliant comedy that aims for big laughs and hits its target!” – NY Post
