ABOUT THE SHOW:
By Guillermo Calderón
September 15 – 30, 2017
at the Tempe Center for the Arts
Directed by Ron May
Lost in translation…
A standing double-date quickly becomes a hilarious farce as four friends unburden their hearts and reveal their secret passions. But is anything really what it seems to be? Politically charged and emotionally urgent, KISS dares us to question whether we can truly understand other cultures. This Southwest premiere by “Chile’s most acclaimed playwright-director of the last two decades” (LA Times) is a disquieting exploration of the limitations of art in grappling with the suffocating effects of an oppressive regime. "This is art that has an impact. That is theatre that is worth producing and worth seeing. Do not, I repeat do not, miss this show. A must-see milestone in the history of entertainment with a conscience." - DC Metro Arts
