BOY GETS GIRL
Written by REBECCA GILMAN
"One of the finest, most disturbing American plays in years. (...) Gilman has a tragic vision of a society in which men and women cannot see each other as human beings. Yet her social comment grows organically out of credible, unexpected characters (...) Boy Gets Girl grasps at big ideas, but reaches the heart and the head with equal force." - Richard Zoglin, Time
"One of the most conspicuous members of a breed of rising dramatists who don't shy from the social problem play(...) The play is first-rate (…) [Gilman] is a connoisseur of self-consciousness (…) Ms. Gilman has it in her to create characters with the richness of ambiguity that lets actors bloom."– Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“It is an effective play (...) The characters are cannily drawn, the dialogue is witty, idiosyncratic, and incisive. There is genuine suspense and mounting terror."- John Simon, New York
"Gilman -- an acute and wiry writer -- puts her ideas into the structure rather than the speeches of her plays (...) But everyone performs unpredictably: one of the points of this penetrating drama is that the gap between motive and effect is enormous." - Susannah Clapp, The Observer
Directed by MICHAEL MENGER
