Sara and Callie are walking through New York City's West Village very late at night, when they share their first kiss. This leads to a vicious attack by an angry bystander, in which Sara is horribly injured. She falls into a coma, which becomes one of the major subjects of the play. George, Callie's good friend, tries to help with the situation, but there is little he can do. Peter, Sara's ex-boyfriend from St. Louis, comes to help nurse her back to health. Throughout Stop Kiss, relationships are explored, formed, and even ended. Diana Son elaborates on the depths of human emotion and compassion in this play.
The story is told out of chronological order: alternating scenes take place respectively before and after the assault, which is not shown onstage.
Stop Kiss is a play written by the American playwright Diana Son, and produced Off-Broadway in 1998 at The Public Theater in New York City. It was extended three times. It focuses on the touching story of Sara and Callie, who are assaulted on the street after their first kiss.
Stop Kiss auditions are April 13! ACC Rio Grande campus, 7 pm.
Please prepare a 1 min serio-comic monologue. Please feel free to tag anyone who you'd think might be interested.
See you tomorrow!
