WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Damascus, Syria, in 2014. Two couples meet for dinner to take their minds off the war raging around them. An unexpected profession of love, an untimely proposal, and one kiss later, one of the foursome lies dead on the floor. What starts out as a Syrian melodrama quickly takes an unexpected turn. Intersecting with the personal, political, and theatrical, Kiss breaks open cultural barriers, challenging audience members to confront the limits of their own understanding and exposing the suffocating effect of an oppressive, omnipresent regime. Kiss is a politically charged and emotionally urgent new play by acclaimed Chilean playwright Guillermo Calderón.
