Stage Kiss

By Sarah Ruhl

Paperback £18.99

When estranged lovers are thrown together as romantic leads in a long-forgotten 1930s melodrama, the line between offstage and onstage begins to blur.

In Stage Kiss, Sarah Ruhl, one of America’s most widely produced playwrights, brings her unique mix of lyricism, sparkling humour and fierce intelligence to the world of romantic comedy. The play asks us to consider what is real, both in love and in art.

Press Quotes

'A gift and a rarity: a superb new romantic comedy that’s moving, smart and flat-out hilarious... You will have difficulty breathing. Stage Kiss is that funny.'

New York

'In Stage Kiss passion and fidelity engage in a kind of elegant pas de deux…At once a knowing send-up of the hazy half-truths of stage naturalism and a meditation on the nature of desire and sexual fantasy, the play manages to be both wholly original and instantly recognizable'

John Lahr - New Yorker

'A knockabout farce that channels Noël Coward and Michael Frayn.'
