Performance: Kiss

Saturday, Nov 18, 2017 at 2:00pm


Written by Guillermo Calderon

Directed by Bill Whitaker

A company of American actors have discovered a play on the internet from an unknown Syrian playwright and they stage it. They are earnest in their attempts to present socially conscientious work in solidarity with the global moment, but for all their good intentions, something gets lost in translation and they get it woefully wrong. The play asks if we can discern from afar with any clarity what is happening in our world today. Chilean born Guillermo Calderon is considered one of the most promising playwrights on the international stage. The Washington Post called Kiss, “Easily one of the most urgent and gripping performances of the new theater season.”
