KISS IT, MAKE IT BETTER

Written by Erika Phoebus -- Directed by Isaac Byrne

May 28-June 18, 2016
New Ohio Theatre, 154 Christopher St., #1E

A coming of age story about a boy and girl who run away after their lives are brutally interrupted and their innocence shattered.  Creating their own sort of Neverland amidst a crumbling fairground is the only way to survive as they hide from the past that is always lurking just behind them.

This play is about love, trauma, adolescence, and the need to develop a shared language in order to process and heal. Dealing with sexual violence, PTSD, and most prominently the long lasting effects of ignorance, silence, and shame; it is an equally playful and heartbreaking look into an "unconventional" kind of love that may feel more familiar than we expect.

"Raw and poetic, the play falls upon you as a tsunami of engrossing pain, untamed passion, and tenderness." New Show New York
