PERFECTING THE KISS

a farcical backstage comedy

3M/2F

In this "Noises Off for Off-Off," a stage manager presents a dramatic recreation of a traumatizing recent production during which she was secretly attracted to playwright Harvest Carruthers who in turn became infatuated with the sweet, sexy, and enormously untalented actor "Buck" Jackson who himself developed a crush on director Edwina O'Halloran who is only doing this very bad avant-gay play to prove that when actor Mike Porter rejected her romantic overtures, he only did so because he's gay thereby enabling her to cope with his rejection.

The result is a hilariously catastrophic series of clashing egos and romantic misalliances.

70 minutes, no intermission
