A.C.T. Studio Theatre presents “Stop Kiss”
A.C.T. Studio Theatre is pleased to recognize LGBTQ Pride Month with the award winning play, Diana Son’s “Stop Kiss.” “To love is to declare oneself, and ‘Stop Kiss’ should speak to anyone who has had to search deep within to find the strength and conviction to join hands with another. I can't remember when a love story has moved me more,” writes Charles McNulty of the LA Times.
Friendship unexpectedly blossoms into love between two young women, but their first kiss provokes a violent attack that transforms their lives. The play offers tender but also humorous rewards as Callie confronts a range of emotions while Sara lies in the hospital. "There's so much that is vital and exciting about ‘Stop Kiss’ . . . You will be charmed by its heartfelt characters and up-to-the-minute humor," wrote the NY Daily News.
Director Stuart Mohr adds, “Telling this story out of sequence became the most rewarding challenge for myself and the actors. Being able to find that through-line from before and after the incident when switching back and forth—all while maintaining the rollercoaster of emotions—should leave the audience enthralled.”
Starring Caroline Crain, Becca Roy, Collin Salvatoré, David Pierce, Meredith Osborn, and Ralph Torres, “Stop Kiss” will be on stage at A.C.T. Studio Theatre June 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16. Friday and Saturday evening performances are at 8:00 p.m.; Sunday matinees are at 3:00 p.m.
A.C.T. Studio Theatre is located in the Cedar Pointe Plaza, 2399 SE Ocean Blvd., Stuart. Reserved seating is $25. For tickets and information, please visit actstudiotheatre.com or call (772) 932-8880.
