"Stop Kiss"

“A poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably,” says Variety. After Callie meets Sara, the two unexpectedly fall in love. Their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives in a way they could never anticipate."

“There’s so much that is vital and exciting about STOP KISS…you want to embrace this young author and cheer her on to other works…the writing on display here is funny and credible…you also will be charmed by its heartfelt characters and up-to-the-minute humor.” —NY Daily News. “…irresistibly exciting…a sweet, sad, and enchantingly sincere play.” —NY Times. “We are amazed how fast we have come to trust this new playwright, Diana Son. We depend upon her to respect the integrity of her unusually real, complicated female characters, and, in turn, her very smart and engaging new play…” —NY Newsday. “Something as thought provoking and ultimately moving as STOP KISS is a joy to experience.” —Star Ledger.  –Taken from Dramatists Play Service, Inc. website
