KISS by Guillermo Calderon


“Two couples meet for their weekly soap opera viewing party, but that standing double date quickly starts to feel like a soap opera itself when the friends unpack scandals, secrets and their heart-rending passions. Guillermo Calderón has written a bold and political theatrical experience that explodes the romantic drama and asks what it means to empathize with a culture and conflict that is not your own.”

This production includes theatre artists, some of whom have recently come to Chicago from Syria or other Middle Eastern nations, working together to tell a story of empathy and culture sharing.
