Shotgun Players in association with Golden Thread Productions presents the Bay Area premiere of Kiss running from August 23 - September 23. Kiss premiered at Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus in 2014, with subsequent productions at Woolly Mammoth, Odyssey, Canadian Stage Company, Stray Cat and Yale Rep. It was published in American Theatre Magazine last year.
A group of actors discover a script set in Damascus. They eagerly begin performing what appears to be a romantic melodrama, believing they will learn something about what it’s like to live in Syria. Then everything explodes. With subtly shifting perspectives, Kiss compels us to continually question our grip on reality. It’s a mystery and political thriller dressed up as a love story.
