About this show

What do you pack in your Suitcase? For the characters in Melissa James Gibson's fresh, quirky, wholly original and hilarious play, longing isn't just a seven-letter word and procrastination can accomplish more than you think. Jen and Sallie have dissertations to finish, Karl and Lyle want to see their girlfriends, and none of them seem to be getting what they want. In the course of an hour and half and several engaging conversations they'll all four try to make sense of the world, themselves and the difference between a childhood ideal and the adult reality of life. What happens when we know a lot but for some reason we don't know any better? With rapid fire wit, hysterical turns of phrase, and just a little bit of singing, Suitcase takes a fun look at relationships and our knack at screwing them up.
