About the play…
“A poignant and funny play about the ways, both sudden and slow, that lives can change irrevocably,” — Variety.

In this comic and dark play, two young women, third-grade teacher Sara, and radio traffic reporter Callie are best friends about to discover something new about their relationships. Callie is sick of her inability to connect with men more than through casual dating or sex, and Callie is beginning to realize she may be a lesbian. It shocks both of them, however, when they find themselves falling in love with each other. When they succumb to their desires and share a first kiss, the act provokes a violent attack from a gay-bashing stranger, changing their lives forever.

“Something as thought-provoking and ultimately moving as STOP KISS is a joy to experience.” — Star Ledger.

“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.

STOP KISS won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding New York production, a 1999 Obie Award, and Diana was awarded a Berilla Kerr Award for playwriting.
